    Pros

    Great benefits and unlimited warm contacts

    Cons

    UW guidelines are BRUTAL. Many seasoned loan officers fail when switching because our UW team will not accept anything in the gray area. I've witnessed many LOs from other companies fail here

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Wonderful place to work if you're a college student. The manager really respects me as an employee and I feel happy coming to work each time. My teammates are all wonderful people and it feels like a small family. Maybe after finishing my degree I can work in another position within this company.

    Cons

    Only con of this company is that I wish I got paid more for my position. Tellers are responsible for a lot of important things and we are worth more than $16/hr.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay tellers more than $16/hr. We have a great deal of responsibility working in this position.

    Pros

    One of the pros is that they are leading the way in technology. They are constantly updating/upgrading their systems to make it more user friendly for both their employees and customers.

    Cons

    The downside is that everything is a fire drill. They are constantly changing their priorities. What may be important today, may not be important or even mentioned again next week.
