"Good people in a tough operating environment"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of good, talented and motivated people. Customer orientation, and a real desire to solve problems.

Cons

Very large organization sometimes creates an un-nuanced operating environment, with employees' ability to exercise judgment occasionally limited. It has been a challenging environment for the banks, generally, which sometimes can weigh on morale.

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, time off, employee discounts

    Cons

    Workload, management, growth options, policy and procedures, other bank associates forget they work for the bank instead of the client, cutthroat, internal associates find a way to escalate but don't keep in mind you are managing a workload of over 30 clients when they typical load is "15"

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on worklife and family balance! Know that associates like to know you care!

    "Unlimited potential, if only the silos and cultures could mesh,."

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

    Pros

    Lots of Great ideas, seems to be a genuine 'general' concern to listen to and grow employees.

    Cons

    Execution of those ideals isn't working. Stymied by old cultures/silos that have no interest other than turf protection. Seems to be a lot of hiring from the outside which makes it worse (then you wind up with even more culture confusion).

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting time allowing the same managers to spend all their time creating and rearranging their silos and actually address systemic problems. There are people inside the bank who want to advance and fix things but aren't allowed to because they aren't part of the right crowds. Outsiders take years to affect any change. We don't have time for that.
