    I worked at Bank of America part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    benefits, hours, customers, some of the coworkers

    Cons

    the pressure to sell products like credit cards is the top priority, customer service is a distant second

    Advice to Management

    If you focus on customer service, the sales will come. Having managers stare over your shoulder to make sure you are harrassing your customer into getting something they may not need is ridiculous. Even when they say no, we're supposed to keep selling it to them, even if the line is out the door.
