    I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Great technology for remote workers (VPN routers for seamless remote access at home, ip phone, teleconferencing)
    -Great fringe benefits (3 months PAID paternity leave, reimbursed for buying a hybrid car, 1.5 points off mortgage pricing)
    -Very good opportunity for advancement internally
    -Decent health benefits
    -20 days of vacation + 10 sick days
    -Many many different opportunities
    -Largely run as a meritocracy

    Cons

    -Frequent layoffs have you almost always in fear of losing your job (the criteria is not always clear for layoffs, sometimes it's based on seniority, sometimes it's based on merit, sometimes it just seems random)
    -Uneven leadership (I had amazing leaders that were supportive and willing to help you excel and I had managers that largely ignored me. In my final role I literally went 6 weeks with no contact at all with my manager)
    -Senior leadership has an overly high opinion of its self and refuses to admit mistakes it has made even as they blow up around them (countrywide acquisition). Other members of senior leadership are so disconnected from the day to day operations in the production environment they cannot make effective decisions due to a lack of understanding of the line of business they manage. (Credit card executive Chip Rossi was in control of mortgage fulfillment and during a meeting needed to have simple mortgage execution terms explained to him)
    -Due to reductions in staff, remaining employees are required to carry project loads far beyond what is reasonable

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. The associate engagement surveys tell you the same things every year, associates are not happy because of the muddled process, excessive over site by individuals who do not understand what they are overseeing and the constant fear of layoffs.

    Pros

    I worked at one of the largest and busiest branches in Los Angeles. The tellers were nice and helpful when a new person was training. Many opportunities to cross-sell products.

    Cons

    The management team were not on the same page. There were inconsistencies with enforcement of bank policies regarding certain customers. Also, turnover was high with both the management team and tellers.

    Advice to Management

    Say what you mean and mean what you say. Please be consistent.
