    "Great company if you're in a core city"

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Bank of America full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and employee programs; company is focused on strong business goals and strategy, however sometimes things go astray between the CEO and the reality (for example, in flattening the company hierarchy, generally the only levels removed were at the bottom of the hierarchy, meaning the people who knew the most about the business were eliminated, and leading to many managers having to manage a wide range of things they didn't know anything about).

    Cons

    If you are not located in a core city (Charlotte, Atlanta, Dallas, New York, or a couple of others), and you are not part of the sales force (branches, client managers, and their managers), then you are not truly part of the team. The company is slowly shrinking all operational jobs to core locations, putting people who work remotely or in small locations in a tough position. Regardless of whether this is the right business approach for the future, HOW they handle it with the PEOPLE impacted is not always done well. They only lay off the worst employees (giving them large severance packages), leaving the remaining people to do more work. They demote some really good managers solely due to where they they. They keep hiring people in core locations from a very small applicant pool, and they are getting some really mediocre people (and leaders) that way. They have such trouble getting good onshore technology contractors that little forward progress is made; a lot of time is spent fixing what they did, or on-boarding new people due to constant churn.
