    Pros

    health insurance options are good

    Cons

    pretty much every aspect of the jobs. so over worked, sales pressure and low pay for the amount you have to do. you work 6 days a week, every week and it's like pulling teeth to try and get a day off. some of us actually want to spend time with our families

    Pros

    Good benefits and training. Lots of developing opportunities.

    Cons

    As a relationship banker has to do both counter and platform. Income is not fair enough. Usually uses as full time teller, hard to catch up goals.

    Advice to Management

    Give this flexible role more cares.

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Bank of America offers wonderful benefits, even to part-time employees, such as tuition reimbursement, childcare reimbursement, coverage of spouse/domestic partner, and paid vacation.

    Cons

    The few times I called out sick, I was made to feel like I was slacking, and letting the team down. The day after, I was asked by one manager to read the texts on my phone to see what I was doing the day I was out sick. As a violation of privacy, I did not honor the request. When I expressed my concerns about this manager to upper management, the concerns were brushed off, and I was told I was the problem and "surely [the manager] wouldn't do something like that". The micromanagement from leadership is stressful, tiring, and demotivating. It's suffocating.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more positive encouragement for what your employees do right, and don't create a hostile work environment by firing managers that are performing and meeting goals just because their leadership style is different. Many good employees have left, and I know more are planning to leave because of the sales pressure and hostile work environment.

    Pros

    Phenomenal benefits
    Ease of mobility within company if performing well in role

    Cons

    This particular role you helm teller transactions and the duties of a Personal Banker it’s described as 50/50 but is admittedly more 70/30 this wouldn’t be an issue if you weren’t measured on performance and to sales goals on the 30%.

    Advice to Management

    Most centers don’t need more tellers, but some most definitely do, be more realistic about it, or atleast incorporate more self service options (More drive up ATM’s and ATA’s, stations where clients can sign into their own online banking to actually demonstrate problems and to assistant clients who don’t have computer access.)
