    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

    I have been working at Bank of America as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty easy, helpful team. Thought I'd be doing Financial Advising, but it trains you to be a Relationship Banker Hybrid. Offers a 401k plan, and the internship is pretty structured. They fly you in for orientation and reimburse you.

    Cons

    Low pay for the cost of living, lack of benefits. Work is kind of boring and mundane. Haven't been learning as much as I would like.

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear about the position to the college students. Many of my fellow interns were confused.
