    Pros

    Great benefits, get to work with awesome people. Market managers are extremely helpful and are proactive in helping ensure center runs as best it can. A good place if you want a fast paced environment.

    Cons

    No work life balance. The view for the company is going digital. Lots of FTE cuts, managers need to work long hours with minimal staff and there is nothing anyone can do about it, it's the direction the company wants to go, less tellers, soon there will be no tellers!

    Pros

    Paternity leave is 3 months paid, good health insurance cuz you gonna need it because of stress....that's about it

    Cons

    Super stressed environment, you squeeze every sweat out of you. Deadlines, goals, target you gotta meet. The moment you slow down cuz you cant do it anymore, you're out.

    Advice to Management

    Management only cares about themselves, everybody's trying to keep their jobs

    Pros

    Good starting pay at $15 an hour. Steady work, pretty straight forward for the most part. Lots of advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Customers can be a real pain. Learning to deal with all kinds of people is a learning curve for sure. Not exciting work at all, easy to get bored.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you have the best possible people training new hires, having a bad beginning can sour the rest of their BofA experience.
