      I have been working at Bank of America

      Pros

      Benefits aren't too bad - health benefits, tuition reimbursements, banking benefits Pretty flexible schedule (but really depends on the branch manager) Training opportunities

      Cons

      Always short staffed, leading to crazy busy days for the very few tellers Constantly changing rules/policies/procedures Really pushy for referrals Unnecessary employee observation reviews every week if your banking center does not meet the weekly/monthly goals

    • BOA Execs (esp. East Division Executive leadership) is out of touch and unrealistic.

      I have been working at Bank of America full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Good compensation and decent benefits

      Cons

      1. Retail banking line of business (the most profitable segment at BOA) is overworked and under-appreciated, especially Middle Managers (Market Managers and Branch Managers). 2. There is absolutely No work/life balance in Retail Banking. EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP IS OUT OF TOUCH (in particular, the Division Executives and above; Area Execs treat Their team the way they are treated, I suppose?) 3. Training is sub-par...

      Advice to Management

      STOP putting unreasonable demands on market and branch managers. There are only so many hours in the day(and people deserve to have a Life). Stop turning over great talent.Turnover is hurting the company. Stop fooling yourselves by thinking that most of those that leave "weren't bought in anyway"; the truth is that BOA has lost Top Talent (these folks have left on their own and some Retail Executive's are in denial as...

      I have been working at Bank of America

      Pros

      Its an ok paying job while you're in college.

      Cons

      I think they over work you a bit and ask too much of you. They pretty much want you to get accounts at all costs. Which is annoying, greedy banks.

      Advice to Management

      Maybe try to REWARD employees instead of just you know, asking for more referals all the time?
