    I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated teammates. Good pay. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Agile methodology works well with some lines of the mortgage business, such as Ecomm, but not for larger, more complicated systems. Yet the bank is insisting all teams work Agile.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that employees who enjoy work life balance are more productive.
    Hiring for just a few geographic areas reduces the pool of skilled job applicants.

    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
