    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

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

    Pros

    Easy-going, laid-back, friendly environment; pay commensurate with experience; good treatment; strong HR support for employees; good benefits.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth beyond a certain point; very hierarchical environment - you better know your place. Conservative and be ready for your 'representative' to show up to work, instead of your true self. Political environment.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize people 'low on the totem pole' more, rather than patronizing them and having some weak employee appreciation month. Allow support employees to share in the company spoils a bit, instead of having them be the first to lose their bonuses when you don't perform as well as last year.

    Pros

    Platform, logistics, research, products. Employee benefits are fantastic and many resources available. Discounts on everything financial and access to Bank of America products

    Heavy focus on banking. You’re treated like a banking associate with licenses sometimes. Without an ability to build portfolios and outside sales, you’re beholden to your one area.

    Let FSAs do outside sales and focus on investment
