Pros

-Managers care about your professional growth
-You are constantly challenged with new assignments which help you understand the bigger picture of the business

Cons

-Hours can be long at times, but this has become the norm in the industry so should be expected

Advice to Management

While building capital reserves is currently the top priority for the bank, management should really start thinking about how to proactively understand (and predict) the needs of clients and act accordingly.

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Generally nice people, decent compensation. Most support functions operate fairly well.

    Cons

    Mid to high-level management (excepting much of C-suite) is sub-par, provincial and inbred. There is a lot of time spent on internal jockeying and competition. While this is typical in large FIs, it seems worse here.
    HR is a problem. While it has gotten slightly better, the role of HR as the "secret police" within BAC tends to do more harm than good. They help create an atmosphere that is tense in an unproductive way while not being good at the blocking and tackling of the normal HR function.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade management talent overall. Downgrade further the power and influence of HR.
