    Pros

    Great benefits but not much else. Competitor banks start associates in similar roles with a higher pay rate.

    Cons

    Terrible culture, inconsistent & under trained staff

    Advice to Management

    Take time to educate staff instead of throwing underprepared associates out there.

    I worked at Bank of America full-time

    Pros

    Reasonable to work with when situations arise where time off is necessary

    Cons

    Depending on who's in charge, favoritism exists. Leader inconsistencies are ridiculous. Hostile work environments can and will be created by the Team Managers. Unit Leaders are out of touch with what's going on, they're always in a "meeting" somewhere. Senior Leadership, in-site, shows favoritism to their people.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the Walk, don't just talk the talk. Maybe you should sometimes check in unannounced on your Managers to find out what they're really doing.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, vacation, sick and personal time off are awesome. Great employee networks and community volunteer programs. Room to advance, but only if you know the right people. If you get involved and play the corporate game, which you have to everywhere in order to advance, you'll go places.

    Cons

    If you have been here for years, then you are in the clique and will be embraced, but if you are new then you are an outsider and will not be embraced or supported. Senior Executive and Site leader were the absolute worst people I have ever worked for. They talked down to us and said things to us that I never expected from an executive at Bank of America. Luckily, they have both been removed but the damage has already been done. Managers and employees have all left and they are not being replaced. This leads me to believe that the department will be transitioned some time soon. DO NOT ACCEPT A POSITION AS A CENTRALIZED SMALL BUSINESS BANKER IN PASADENA.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Hire managers, trainers, business support, and executives with actual experience. The people that were in there had no experience in their role and it showed. It felt like a big experiment that failed. Hire people with call center experience not solely small business experience.
