    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Significant internal opportunity for internal mobility. Good access to learning and development.

    Cons

    Culture varies depending on city and line of business. I worked in Human Resources in New York and the environment was very competitive and hierarchical. Disconnect between senior leadership and middle management/individual contributors. Culture discouraging disrupting status quo, does not value innovation or creativity unless in line with existing strategic initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your more junior talent and seek their input and expertise when making strategic decisions. Provide more leadership training. Encourage executives and managers to speak up with concerns, listen, and value those who disrupt the status quo for the sake of improvement.

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people, good benefits, reasonable hours, good pay. In some roles you can choose the level of complexity you want which is a nice option. You can be on projects solving tough problems working with latest technology or something more regimented.

    Management or regulators will dictate priorities so maybe not a good fit for someone who wants to run the show. But besides that I would recommend to just about everyone.

    Cons

    Limited work from home options, priorities frequently change which makes it difficult to plan and the structure (size) of the enterprise makes these changes difficult to navigate. Promotional track is unclear if you don’t want a management role.

    Advice to Management

    Improve work location options for people that do not want to live near a “hub”. Make an advancement track that doesn’t involve becoming a manager. Have more cross-training and job sharing options.
