    I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Awesome benefits! Honestly they can not be compared to any other financial institution in their industry. From matching up to 7% on 401k, providing four months maternity/bonding time to providing reasonable health coverage prices, BOA hands down has the best benefits.

    Cons

    Although diversity and inclusion are apart of the banks mantra, its not completely honored. I was the only black person on my team of 95% Hispanics. Diversity sure.....inclusion...not so much from my experience in the Brea, CA location.

    BOA is also slow to promote. It is alllllll about who you know. Networking will be your primary tool to grow, not your skill set.

    Lastly, HR, they are not as supportive as they promote. Although the bank advertises that you can go to HR and report things however as soon as you do, you direct manager is made aware of it.

    *Disclaimer* These experiences are not a reflection of the entire bank as a whole, I am only talking about the contact center location in Brea,CA.

    Paid time off, paid sick time, 401k, plenty of overtime, fair pay.

    Look for the weak links in leadership to improve
