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

    Pros

    Pay is comparable to a large law firm, but few if any weekends or late nights. There are some people who have worked at Bank of America for decades and who like it. Further, your role will change frequently, and so the job you are hired for won't be the job you're doing in even a year.

    Cons

    Extremely stressful; lots and lots of politics (and so much of your time is spent fighting with people internally); uncertainty, with frequent rounds of layoffs that are not performance-based. People can win medals for performance one day and be terminated shortly afterwards. Also, few opportunities for internal advancement; promotions are rare.

    Advice to Management

    Hire from within, which would build loyalty.
