    Pros

    BAS gives you the same basic training as any other Investment Bank and deal flow in certain areas is very strong

    Not being in NY can be challenging and working within the ever changing org structure can become very frustrating over time

    Advice to Management

    Advice would include better feedback and provide more stable work environment by not constantly re-organizing product areas and promote better communication across geographic regions

    Pros

    BAS tends to be one of the more stable investment banks. They may not pay the highest on the street, but they also do not get hit as hard during the downturns.

    Cons

    Working for an investment bank tied to a commercial bank (in the pre-fallout era) did mean that you had to put up with some commercial banking PR garbage that was unnecessary. Stuff like corporate donations to various charities, training that was a waste of time for investment banking personell...etc. There were a few instances in 2007 of groups that received zero bonuses for the year, although this was laregly in groups that were MBS/ABS related.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management has done an acceptable job in managing the investment bank, but they should let BAS have more autonomy from BAC.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people I worked with. The analytical skills taught were exceptional in addition to client time. I would work there again.

    Cons

    Not enough exposure to clients

    Advice to Management

    Involve people below senior level management more exposure to clientele and have them involved in the winning business process rather than solely execution.
