    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.

    I worked at Bank of America full-time

    Pros

    Reliable hours, really nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Email bombarding every day, to the hour on how poorly everyone was doing. It seemed like the managers jobs were to send out emails telling the whole company they were terrible at their jobs. Very demoralizing. The branch managers were not above these emails and would get bombarded as well, which would result in them pushing customers out so that bankers could make the most sales possible. It was not a nice environment for customers either. They expressed feeling unappreciated and I could totally relate. For a job advertised as a customer service position, the company was not at all concerned with the quality of service the customers experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Being told every morning that your work is deficient is a very unexciting way to start your day. I wouldn't expect people sticking around for long with these practices management has endorsed. Everyone I met there who was a smart capable person has since moved on, and rightfully so.

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

    Pros

    Nice staff, benefits are solid, lots to learn, pay is slightly better than average. Products are easy to sell. Very inclusive culture thought it may seem a bit forced at times.

    Cons

    The actual work itself is rather tedious/repetitive. You eventually get tired of cashing checks for people. The company is good, the clientele poses a bit of an obstacle sometimes. Glorified retail essentially.

    Advice to Management

    The only thing I know of are some bugs in the teller’s software but nothing in terms of how work operates. Maybe there’s too much paper.
