    I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Good benefits. Great people. Sad for all the lay-offs from upper management to non-exempt workers that I feel could have been avoided.

    Cons

    Upper management made some bad decisions which caused a lot of problems with homeowners, which eventually caused a lot of people to lose their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    I really have none. Since I was not upper management, I feel what decisions they made they "thought" were the right ones.
