  3. "Stay away from the Irvine FC manager!"

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA

      I have been working at Bank of America full-time

      Pros

      Most people are supportive and helpful.

      Cons

      Horrible and unprofessional FC manager. Rude to employees and customers alike!

      Advice to Management

      Get better managers! Screen screen screen If you manager doesn't have the decency to reply to a good morning and is consistently rude because of their own biases/ prejudices- it's a reputational hazard for a brand like BofA. This particular FC manager makes me want to resign every single day! The senior leadership is great and I hope someone points it out!

      I worked at Bank of America full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Bank of America will prepare you to work in a variety of different environments, whether focused on customer service or sales. The pay is good, considering the scope of your responsibilities.

      Cons

      Management likes to look over the shoulder. High expectations with little incentive for results. Exceptional work is not rewarded.

      Treat your employees like they matter.

      Pros

      The name BofA??? I did have a nice office

      Cons

      Horrible company, everything is departmentalized and you can never talk to anyone. 120 day to get loan closed, Big Brother is watching...they would go through locked cabinets in my office looking for something to say compliance would attack. Favoritism of those making tons everyone else struggles and absolutely no help... process your whole loan through their stupid system. I can't believe i lasted 9 months, i was...

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Bank of America part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Good/consistent training programs, easy to relocate with many branches nearby, employee perks, room for growth, one hour lunch, teller incentive

      Cons

      Stressful work environment, sales goals keep increasing, micromanagers, no chairs for tellers, 6 teller stations but only 3-4 scheduled, no benefits for part time employees, not a good part time job for full time students, cant move up unless you work fulltime, was promised a certain bonus if I hit a goal but never received it.

      Advice to Management

      Appreciate the hardwork that your tellers put in to generate leads.

      I worked at Bank of America full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Many job categories at Bank of America which allows employees to learn new skills. Mortgage loans, retail management, investments, trusts, etc. Vacation, sick time and holidays seem to be above industry standards. Big company that is recognizable. Pay seems to be in line with industry standards.

      Cons

      With all the mergers and acquisitions there is discontent of employees from each company (Fleet Boston, Merrill Lynch, Countrywide and so on) Management has "good old boys" mentality. The company changes business models often which lead to more layoffs. Not sure if they have clear direction with a plan in place. Layoffs are done without looking at performance. Seems to be random but it is more up to manager's discretion....

      Advice to Management

      Figure out a plan, stick to it and reward your loyal employees. Some employees are taking great advantage of the company and management is keeping a blind eye.
