    Pros

    PTO, Maternity leave, off on weekends.

    Cons

    HR is a complete waste of time. If they have a relationship with your local market leader they won’t work in your favor at all.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop with the political. Value your hard working employees. Everyone maybe replaceable, however the turn over rate with doom the whole area. The company is great but the unethical management is makes me what to take my greatness elsewhere QUICK!

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Possibility for commission is available quarterly.

    Cons

    The training process is very tense and long. You train in the back of a bank alone at a computer for 8 straight hours. The focus is on sales and employees are pressured daily about sales. Customer Service not as important as the customers. You are required to come in early and never allowed to leave on time and your schedule is changed without your knowledge weekly. Commission is only quarterly if you make 100% of your goal in the for months which is almost impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making the focus on numbers and sales. Pay more attention to customers needs. Revamp the training process to a classroom setting not in the back of a bank where it's an inconvenience to current employees. Some employees where literally in a unsafe environment. In a basement, near bathrooms so uncomfortable and unprofessional.

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

    Pros

    High salary for an intern
    Work environment was friendly
    Nice funnel to full time position

    Cons

    Basically the whole program
    Barely any work to do and I was based in a financial center where you have to be licensed to do anything. So most days I would just sit in the back and do nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Give the interns more work that is relevant to their majors and the post-graduate position
