    I worked at Bank of America as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The scale of the company is global which provides a lot of opportunity for getting involved in impactful projects across various lines of business. The pay is very competitive.

    Cons

    The beurocracy often gets in the way of the work. It takes weeks to install vital software on your work computer. Many employees are located across the globe, so you may never see your team members in person. The internship itself didn't offer me much in terms of presenting, collaborating with others, or receiving critique and personal growth.

  3. "Interns seemed like an afterthought"

    I worked at Bank of America as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pays fairly well for a company whose most valued employees are not software devs

    Cons

    Manager had made no plans about my intern project until after I started my first day on the job
    Training and onboarding for new hires was extremely tedious and ate into time for projects
    Technology stack is extremely outdated and inefficient compared to those used in other companies
    All office space was taken, so technology interns on my floor had to set up workstations in their rarely-used game room

    Advice to Management

    Take intern projects more seriously and provide more support for them

    I have been working at Bank of America as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great manager and mentor who both made sure that I got the most out of my internship with relative projects. The work culture at the office is very respectful, and I was fortunate to work with a team that had great synergy with each other. Work and life balance is also excellent -- I hardly had to stay overtime to get something done.

    Cons

    Not all teams are like this from what I've heard. The cubicle set-up is also a little depressing.

    Friendly environment where management takes the time focus on you and your interests.

    I worked at Bank of America as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The intern managers did the best they could to create a "robust" intern program. All the managers and full-time employees are very willing to offer career advice and help you during your time at the Bank. Most people are very keen to help you if you ask. You're very likely to get a return offer for full-time as long as you put in your 40 hours a week and don't royally screw up. Good pay too.

    Cons

    The technology intern program is severely lacking. Most interns were not given any meaningful work until 2 weeks in, some not until 4 or 5 weeks in. We were not given projects that would have impact on the Bank or assist the full-time employees, we were given projects that would give us something to do for the duration of the internship. You really had to make an effort and go out of your way to get enough work to fill up 40 hours a week for 10 weeks, and some of the work was really just reading through pages and pages of documentation and not actually doing work.

    The culture is stifling. As STEM students, we expect a certain type of workplace culture but working in tech at the Bank just felt like working at a bank. It was stiff, formal, and a lot of the people we were working with had children our age. Some managers were unprepared for their interns and didn't get them computers right away, so they were stuck observing for a few weeks.

    Overall, the internship was boring, frustrating, and not very rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Let your interns work on meaningful projects with full-time associates. We are smart, eager, youth coming from good schools who WANT to learn and work.
