    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Not much right now. Typical old fashion banking mentality,

    Cons

    Disorganized
    Bogged down in so many policies and procedures you cannot be effective in your assigned role. So you need to work hours unpaid to accomplish what must be done. Everyone is very nice but no one will assume responsibility to make a decision

    Advice to Management

    Allow your people to make decisions without so many bean counters. No ne can make progress forward due all the self imposed procedures. Systems checks should be run BEFORE installing programs which didn't and don't work effectively therefore compounding any progress.. Commit to back up your employees not summarily dismiss them because you over estimate the new for your work force.

    Pros

    Opportunity to move around and grow in many facets. If you are starting out and want to choose a company with a diverse slate of jobs, this is a great place. Internal mobility is always an option!

    Cons

    Too big to fail and too big to really make an impact. If you really want to be noticed for working hard and being paid for performance, your one of thousands. To make an impactful change you need to be at the top tiers of executive management, otherwise you are just another pawn in the game.

    Advice to Management

    Flatten this huge organization. Look less to a hierarchy structure, and more towards a company that allows a think tank environment, not mindless operations.

    Pros

    - The company allows movement (within your line of business) with little experience.
    - If you are considered a "top employee" the managers tend to give you a lot of leeway.

    Cons

    - Bank of America's main concern is it's stock holders which makes employees feel like "just another number".
    - When the mortgage industry crashed they were very insensitive about laying people off. In fact I was told by a prior manager that it basically came down to who the manager liked and who they didn't.
    - Watch out if you get a manager that doesn't like you for some reason. It won't matter if your numbers prove you are exceeding your goals, they will ride you more than anyone else to look for mistakes to be able to get rid of you.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees that have been there a very long time. You may notice there is a mass exodus going on . . . I guarantee you even the employees you think are happy will leave you in a heartbeat. You showed everyone that the company thinks of their own best interest and employees need to think of themselves. Try to turn that around, go back to "doing the right thing". I was an employee that firmly believed in Bank of America, there aren't many left. Cultivate the employees you have and treat them right.
