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

    Pros

    Smart people, flexibility in work schedules to manage life events, and great support for communities. Many different types of roles to build a career around.

    Cons

    So focused on expense reductions that salary has limits and benefits are very expensive. Exiting a fantastic work from home program and scarce opportunities if you are not in a designated core location.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking people efficiency until the tools and processes are actually in place to support fewer resources. Support work from home strategies for roles that have proven success at doing so.

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

    Pros

    Professional and personal development in finance and banking.

    Cons

    -For a company of its size, it is horribly disorganized.
    -Management does not take ownership of problems. It is a finger pointing environment or an ignore the problems mentality.
    -Goals are unrealistic and causes significant frustration for field teams.

    Advice to Management

    -Take time to listen to the client facing associates feedback from customers.
    -Provide admin support to the field associates.
    -Overall, improve compensation plan to reward the associates that are making a difference in the FC not just basing incentive on the sales goals.

    Pros

    Benefits are the best in the business. This is the only reason I've stayed with the company for this long.

    Micromanagement. They are doing away with jobs that allow you to work from home while other companies are adding them.

    Challenging environment. Motivating peers. Great hours mostly 9-4. Benefits and 401k is good. Good work life balance. Company has good ethics. Very understanding of family and home life.

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Provides good benefits like 401k, health and dental insurance, and decent pay

    Cons

    Sales heavy job. Company is trending to slowly but surely eliminate positions by focusing on mobile, online, and other products and services despite saying they arent. The work is more than the pay is worth.

    Pros

    Benefits and perks. 4 months paternity and maternity leave ok place to learn and great research capabilities

    Cons

    Health insurance is horrible , you have to be part of the click to get ahead and it's not based on experience but on who you know and how well you are liked

    Pros

    Hours regular 8-4:30 M-F all holiday paid 11 total for a calendar year. Great PTO and benefits package. Structure of written policies and procedures.

    Cons

    My department was a mess there was constant changes to executives and senior managers I reported to 3 different people in 8 month period and 2 the next year. Inconsistency from HR on how to deliver and give disciplinary actions. Other managers showed favoritism and special treatment to associates of choice. I was the only female and treated like a Secretary and not a team manager.

    Advice to Management

    Need new management on exec level

    Pros

    Despite the position where one starts BoA offers many opportunities across different business verticals; as such, if one is driven and resourceful, the possibilities of experiencing an uptick is very possible.

    Cons

    Like many large institutions, navigating the office culture could serve to derail or impede the type of individual who shuns "the office buddy system playbook mentality".

    Advice to Management

    Lagging employee performances in most cases is a reflection of poor direct managers who cannot lead. As such, upper level management should ensure that supervisors are properly trained not only to supervise others but also to develop employees strengths.
