    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Flexible Work environment 2. Good work-life balance

    Cons

    1. Senior management does not understand the root level problems 2. Lot of re-work types projects, wasting so much project money

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking short cuts just because initially it sounds like a good idea and you think it is going yo save you a buck; such decisions have a negative impact on the worker bee employees.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Bank of America for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nothing good in this team but there are lot of other teams that loved working with. Lot of other teams are very professional.

    Cons

    Pay for 8 hrs and work for 16 hrs. Pay cut with in 2 months of joining..furlough with in 2 months of joining. I would have picked other jobs on hand if I would have known the pay cut.worst management I have ever seen and worked in my career.offered me a position when joined but once joined the leads never bothered to even discuss on the role. If some one want to see the heights of unprofessionalism refer this team.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't apply furlough and rate cut to the people who just joined... That's truly unprofessional and unethical.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    It's about as stable as a bank can be (too big to fail). If you like being a cog in a gigantic impersonal machine (and, yes, some people do), you'll fit right in.

    Cons

    If you don't like being a cog in a gigantic impersonal machine, if you want the kind of less formal, more entrepreneurial, more creative environment (like most software people), a giant bank is not for you, and this is certainly one of the most giant banks.

    Advice to Management

    A banking culture is appropriate for bankers, but in a corporation so large, you have lots of employees whose jobs aren't about banking. Those people need a different culture. If you can't have two cultures in one company, spin those jobs off into a separate company that has a client-vendor relationship with the corporation and then that company can develop an appropriate culture.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Bank of America

    Pros

    a lot to learn - new concepts technology, good compensation package, good benefits

    Cons

    if your immidiate manager has issues with you no matter what you think of the company values, you must leave or, will get sacked. dont be honest, be diploamatic every day, every conv.

    Advice to Management

    a manager will do everything possible to justify but be very thorough in understanding a manager's rating data points, ask tough questions to ensure that the manager is not taking a personal decision.
