    Micro management, redundant conference calls which extends work week by 5-7 hours/week, antiquated sales reporting systems that take at least 1 week to update, unrealistic goals

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing! Training is good and some jobs allow you to work from home.

    Cons

    There is so much change that it can be very easy to get lost and forgotten in the shuffle. One year along, I had 5 different managers!

    Advice to Management

    Flag employees who have frequent manager changes. It's too easy to get lost in the shuffle with all the re-org's

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ability to advance if you are willing to get advanced certification ie CFA. If you are in management (director level) or supervisor, at least from what I witnessed, is that these positons seem to have limited responsibilites. I worked in a very small group of people, and I was neither a supervisor or director, but this is simply what I witnessed over the course of 5 years.

    Cons

    At least in my experience, you will be entrenched in your positon unless you are willing to get some type of advanced certification beyond the usual series 7. In fact while I worked there for 5 years, there wasn't a single person that left our department to go to another department.
    Not that I felt my immediate management was poor, quite the contrary, they were capable and fair. However, I felt stuck in my position and quite frankly thought I was more than capable of advancing and actually being of more value to the company, but there was really no path in place to achieve this, other than going the CFA route. Or at least no type of advancement path was ever presented as an option.

    Advice to Management

    Make employees more aware of paths of advancement and how to achieve theses goals. I worked there 4 years ago, so things may have changed or as previously mentioned, it could have just been my department.

    I worked at Bank of America (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good learning environment for those new to the field, and opportunities for growth for those that perform and make themselves known to management.

    Cons

    Productivity often outweighs job function and work life balance, and associates often feel an us and them relationship with management. Pay seemed below industry averages when I was there.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what the associates are saying. Perception can easily become reality if transparency is not maintained.

    Pros

    I like that I am learning about banking, in an organization that takes knowledge so seriously.

    Cons

    For the amount of money I bring in I wish I made more.

    Advice to Management

    Increase hourly wages 25%
