I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Coworkers. Fast Paced. No 2 days are alike.

Cons

Lack of training, work/life balance issue, poor upper management, too much red tape and hurdles to jump over for approvals and funding. Not on the cutting edge of technology.

Advice to Management

The Merrill Lynch work ethic has taken over since the acquisition and I don't mean that as a positive comment. Work/Life balance got thrown out the window. Too much emphasis on face time and not enough and actual results and accomplishments. Need a housecleaning across the top 3-4 levels of management to bring in new ideas and current technology.
