    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay scale. Flexible working arrangements. Some smart people who really do try to do the right thing, despite the bureaucracy.

    Cons

    I came over during the Merrill Lynch merger. Since then, I've had several new managers, and never meet any of them in person. There are 400 tools needed to do your job, and it's easy to spend a day wrestling with a tool instead of doing real work. The bureaucracy can be stifling.

    Advice to Management

    For starters, working flexibly and remotely is a FANTASTIC benefit, but loosen up the travel dollars and let project teams get together more often.

    "Bank of America tries hard to strive for Work/Life Balance and provide growth opportunities but has fallen short."

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
