    I worked at Bank of America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Management take an interest in your career and if you are willing to work hard they will work with you to develop your skills and find good opportunities for you to grow

    Cons

    You need to make yourself heard for growth opportunities - they won't come to you unless you look for them

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    good environment, good culture, consistent amazing financial results (but not trickling down), decent pension (but not the best in the market), healthcare for the whole family, decent pay (but a lot of places pay much better), good people in the right places. A lot of training, plenty of opportunities to move laterally (but not up). 25 days holidays (which is probably standard). They look after employees (but don't... promote easily). A lot of employee assistance programs. Fantastic office technology. The overall experience is priceless.

    Cons

    Promotions take ages (you're better off in London than in Dublin, or leave, get experience, title and money, and come back a notch or two higher). Annual pay rises aren't great, pension contribution could be better (not market leading), bonuses are average, no car allowance. If you stay long, you'll be undervalued.

    I worked at Bank of America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great first step and a career notch on your CV. You won't be changing the world here or even remotely close but it gives you a good sense of confidence and a good sense of work place practices if you are fresh out of college. Great work life balance though, very family oriented however and there is a clear preference in terms of flexibility for people with families which is a little unfair but at least it is... there. A nice place to retire in. You can get lucky with teams also as some teams are great, some teams are hell. Expect late nights and weekends now and then due to incredibly inefficient release processes in some cases. Plenty of encouragement for career advancement but then when you tick all the boxes, it's not enough so be prepared to walk if you want to move up. It's a giant corporation and has all of the attributes of one so a little push pull is needed to get to where you want to be. Great community spirit. The Bank does a lot for the local community and really is heavily involved with philanthropic efforts. Even if it is just for PR it does benefit the country.

    Cons

    Hard work and exceptional talent doesn't really count as much as it should. Spend time and money rejuvenating old redundant processes and let developers focus on development not bureaucracy. As a company, the bank tries desperately to think and move like a tech company but ultimately stiffened regulations and fear of change from senior managements brings good development and projects to a halt. Additionally... there is just an awful amount of mediocre developers just doing enough to survive and this leads to a lot of frustration and costly meetings where good developers are driven to agree to the majority rule. No realization for the power of open source technology. Time is seen as the only real measure of experience not performance.

    Advice to Management

    Respect, endorse and appropriately compensate the most pragmatic people or they will leave and give the competition the greater edge. Stop believing just because it requires hard work and risk that it is a no go option. Change is good.
