    Pros

    good health care, child care reimbursement, free life insurance for the amount of 1 year income. if you bank there you also get additional perks. easy to leave work at the office an encouraged to do so.

    you are a cog in the machine. At the branch level they will work you and don't care about work life balance.

    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

    Meh cant complain manager leaves me alone if I'm doing well, much like I own my own businesss.

    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.
