    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is no such thing - I had the worst experience of my life and I was constantly bullied by my team. My team lead considered is OK to shout at me at all times (in front of other people)while 'my manager' was being entertained by it. I felt humiliated on a daily basis.

    Cons

    MANAGEMENT MANAGEMENT MANAGEMENT
    My own experience was terrible :
    -people were leaving that team all the time. Someone even left after 3 weeks.
    - Location - you are in the middle of nowhere
    -HR- I told them about the way I was being treated and they just ignored me
    - the team in NYC was extremely difficult to work with - they were always rude
    - applied for lots of relocation jobs in London and 'my manager' made sure to give all the negative feedback to the hiring managers for me not to get a relocation
    -they say that encourage people to move around to other teams-learn new skills etc- but this is just on paper (if your manager doesn't like you as a person you'd be stuck in the same team forever until they make you quit the job)

    Advice to Management

    Hire professionals and someone with people skills when you decide to give them a job as a team lead or 'manager'.
