    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get some leads from the bank. Not enough for a career for sure. Fairly good insurance and benefits. You can get tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    You will starve if you only have those bank leads. Also, realtors will shy away since it is a big bank. So it's not very possible to build business.

    Advice to Management

    Improve training for underwriting, don't push useless metrics, and be honest about lead flow with new hires. Pay a competitive amount of bps for self sourced leads and improve processing so it is possible to get outside business.

    Pros

    Staff is very friendly and desire for all to succeed. Benefits are great and start on Day 1. Benefits range from Healthcare, 401k, Wireless network discount, and tons more.

    I haven't worked here long enough to determine any cons, I would say the hiring process is very lengthy.. but honestly I feel it is needed. Bank of America protects their assets and companies integrity by diligently hiring the best!

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

    Pros

    Good company, paid vacation, college reimbursement, they allow tellers to get incentives, very good health insurance, dental and vision, good retirement program too, they match 5% to IRA

    Cons

    Rude customers, sometimes strict managers, Saturdays are not off, it really depends on what location you work in some banks are great some are not

    Advice to Management

    I think managers push sales too much that it can cause employers to feel pressured, a better approach is to inspire the employee to perform well is sales

    Pros

    Training is thorough and prepares you as best as possible for real-life scenarios. The pay is fair for a part-time employee. Great general entry-level position.

    Cons

    Working with different types of customers on a daily basis can be challenging. Every type of person goes to the bank and you never know what type of a mood customers might be in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
