    I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tremendous emphasis on the employee - bi-annual surveys are anonymous (and in one major division, the surveys are annual) - they want to know what employees think and need. Commitment to diversity and inclusion. Affinity groups enable employees to connect with others who have similar interests.

    Cons

    Due to a reorganization, my position was eliminated - lay-off was surprisingly abrupt - in a 2-minute phone call from my manager, my 10+ year career ended, immediately. However, severance package was generous. Company appears to be stepping back from its "remote work" program.

    Advice to Management

    When reorganizations occur, show more respect for tenured employees, and make greater effort to identify other career opportunities for them within the company.

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Benefits
    - Work from home (although this is decreasing)
    - Associate development (with a caveat...only if you actively pursue, lots of events and courses on learning portal and if you have buy-in from your manager)

    Cons

    Micromanagement exists and some manager will put a target on low performers.

    Advice to Management

    As seen in a few other reviews, people don't leave jobs, they leave bad management. Take a look at managers who have multiple people leave their team and really deep dive into their survey results. At first I thought I was being overly sensitive working for this most recent manager; however, after hitting my tipping point of "enough" and talking with people who have left the team, I realized it's not me...it's the manager.

    I've been with the bank for over 10 years; however, I'm now looking for opportunities outside the bank. It's been a good run; however, the old buildings and extremely lax dress code make the Plano campus feel run down. With Toyota headquarters and new Legacy West developments down the street, we'll see if the grass is greener on the other side.

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits for full time employees including 4 months of Paternity Leave.

    Cons

    Too much of bureaucracy at Middle Management and there are several Manager's Managers who creates politics for the sake of their own survival. They neither have technical nor business knowledge, all they do is politics. There is huge discrimination and several Managers give preferential treatment to Asian origin employees.

    Advice to Management

    Flush out the layer of Manager's Manager who neither has any tech or business knowledge nor involve in daily operations. This layer is the source of all confusions within the company & turning a blind eye towards their uncontrolled politics will bring the company down.
