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

Pros

Awesome training system in place, BOA employees are some of the best trained in the industry.
Great benefits package and access to EAP that really work.

Cons

The management staff believes in micromanaging you. If you aren't performing in the top 95% look forward to constant emails and meetings with your supervisor. Their system for improving performance is counter productive because they spend so much time sending emails and taking you away from your job that you miss opportunities for improvement.

Zero work/life balance. They make you work 2 late nights during the weekend and 2 Saturdays a month. Forget about picking up a part time job, it won't be possible. Other activities like attending your child's after school functions may be difficult as well. They really invade your entire life.

Advice to Management

Stop rushing success, allow employees to get adjusted to their role, familiar with the duties of the job before pressuring them about performance only a week or two out of training.
