    I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Hours, Great benefits, good technology. BOA has great benefits and amazing hours, while I worked there I had a great work life balance. Some centers open Saturday from 9-1pm, most offices close at 4pm and employees are usually out of the office by 5pm. Bank accounts are free for employees and other bank products are given at a discount. Goals are achievable and incentives are lucrative if you are a good seller.

    Cons

    If you are not referred by a relative, friend or connection that can help you become a member of a "clique" or an "in-crowd" you won't stand a chance. If you are looking to build a career and work your way up the ladder within a reasonable amount of time, BOA is not the place for you. Don't expect to be promoted if you don't have the right connections, regardless of your experience or having an MBA. During the time I was employed there no one got promoted unless they were "well connected" I saw many people get passed over for less experienced associates with the right connections.
         The minute someone who is a member or a group or "clique" decides they don't like you or thinks you may be competition, forget it you are done for. They call all their friends (who many are Managers) and harass you in order to secure your immediate departure. Senior leadership won't help, it does not matter if you are a good employee, they will not put a stop to the nonsense. Leaders see the bullying happening right under their nose and turn a blind eye, I believe that management in many cases encourages this behavior.
         I was left alone most of the time because I was quiet, but a girl I worked with for a few months was constantly harassed by some of our co-workers. The bullying was so bad that I would always catch her tearing up. I think she was targeted because she was an outsider who had experience and wanted to get ahead, our manager (clique member) did not like her. It felt horrible to see the abuse towards her and see how she was wasting away, I could see that our manager would condone the behaviour towards her and in my opinion encouraged it. I wanted to help her, but was too afraid of my own back and job to do anything about it. I chose to find another job and left instead.

    Advice to Management

    "The land of nepotism" with a senior leadership team that condones, disregards, overlooks, neglects, ignores and turns a blind eye to workplace bullying and intimidation from all levels. Management does not care about losing good talent and having high turnover. No one get ahead if they are not well connected regardless of education, experience, talent or performance. Bank of America is known by everyone in the industry as political machine.
         BOA has great benefits and amazing hours, while I worked there I had a great work life balance. BOA would be a great place to work if leadership would address the nepotism, bullying and employee intimidation that takes place all the time amongst all levels. Employees are aware about these issues but are afraid to speak up on behalf of themselves or other associates because of retribution. No one is comfortable enough to call HR because their manager will find out.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn various business lines, online internal platform resources to perform analysis pertinent to business needs.

    Cons

    Eventually, because of BOA's purchase of Merrill Lynch, the integration and understanding by BOA of best practices to address International and Latin American market segment was lacking. KYC and due diligence relative to protecting client service, fraud protection, and management of operations environment as expected could have been handled better. CA's as usual in such circumstances must cope with both team & operational changes as best as possible.
