    Pros

    There is some job flexibility when working for Bank of America. Bank of America encourages and promotes a diverse work force.

    Cons

    Bank of America does not give good merit raises each year. Expect to get low raises as Bank of America is very cost conscious. Bank of America Human Resources is not pro-employee. If an associate has a concern HR will always concur with the business. Bank of America benefits are not very good and the benefits a considerably worse for managers than hourly associates or associates making under 100k per year.
