    I worked at Bank of America (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, competitive pay, learning position, great coworkers, room for advancement, huge global company, great hours. Really a great environment. Local management was very engaged.

    Cons

    Fairly high pressure environment. There is a lack of focus on serving the customer, and a heavy focus on gaining the customer's full portfolio. Which is fine, but there is definitely a distaste built in to the job for good old help and customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Sales pressure on PBs and management is a bit much. Tone that down and focus more on the customer.

    Quick growth within company if you work hard

    Pros

    Great benefits, good people to work with. Good ongoing training modules.

    Cons

    Nowhere to go at my location. Tons of layoffs. Working hard doesn't necessarily mean promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Should expand to other large cities with more markets. It is a world-class bank after all.

    Pros

    Most senior leaders are good but some are spread too thin. The health benefits and employee resources are very good.

    Cons

    It can be challenging to decipher the available postings. Often they are posted in very cryptic phrases which can be a turn off. Also something's they are posted when there is already a person in mind for the roll.

    Get experience to move on. 401K match immediate. Tuition reimbursement $5K per year, Volunteer time off 2 hours per week paid. 3 weeks vacation, 2 weeks sick time.

    No advancement. Favorites already picked out. Too many politics. They say you can get flex time but don't honor it. Only men seem to get moved up but most of the workers are women.

    Clean house and hire new managers or build internally
