    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Tremendous opportunities. Very large, complex, and challenging technology environments. Talented co-workers. Team-oriented. Past mgmt (Ken Lewis) great visionary; Moynihan less so. Feds/ regulators have jackboot on neck of mgmt. Requiring all resources to compliance and regulation that's thwarting new products and services. Intent is it to make bank smaller and out of "too big to fail" category.

    Cons

    small fish in a big pond. impossible to impact bottom line of corporation so focus must be individual and organization-centric goals and accomplishments;

    Advice to Management

    promote and encourage each organization to create unique, well articulated and understood cultures; this will strengthen relationships within organizations.
