    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great vacation benefits, great banking benefits and over all environment is relax. The hours are reasonable and decent and the campus in Plano is fairly nice.

    Cons

    The Plano campus is majority Indian employees and the management team is majority of Indian decent, a prime example of a diverse hiring practices lol. The only way this ratio could have happen is Indian managers only hiring Indians, a practice that should have been put to check by HR. Many of the managers are micro managers and there is a level of “talking down” to employees when they address their subordinates, a management style common in India. Look I have worked in many diverse environment before with many different cultures but what you see in Plano campus is a prime example of nepotism and reverse discrimination at its finest.

    Advice to Management

    Bank of America is not diverse! If your team is 100% of Indian decent race, you need to ask why, ‘is it just because Indians are just so smart that they are overly represented in these high paying cushy jobs? OR maybe there are systemic biases in the hiring practices of these individuals in power. That is a more likely scenario
