    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

    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.

    Pros

    It all depends on who you work with. I have worked for some awesome people, I have lucked out.
    The company has good benefits

    Cons

    Same old same. Its all about who you know to get advanced, rarely does hard work get noticed. Bofa is for profit so it has unrealistic quotas like the rest.

    They are turning into a wells fargo in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your word and pay attention to your employees. You're driving them away.

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement for students-great first job for young folks

    Cons

    Management sucks- they barely do any work

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to motivate your tellers by saying .. "but we won't get our bonuses if you we don't hit our branch goals".. tellers don't make bonuses, we don't care about your paycheck
