Current Employee - Vice President in Los Angeles, CA
Current Employee - Vice President in Los Angeles, CA
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Bank of America full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good benefits, 4 weeks of vacation

Cons

Bonuses are a joke

Base pay below average

Heavy on middle management, lack of junior staff to delegate work to

It's nearly impossible to move up a BAND level within your own team. Most be proactive and look around.

Advice to Management

I think they are on track to create value to shareholders. Should offer a better incentive program to employees to motivate us to do better/more. Just trying to 'not get laid off' isn't a great motivator or sustainable long term.

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice benefits, vacation, 401k matching, dental, vision

    Cons

    Managers don't want to manage. You ask for help on an issue and they pretend to be doing something else or simply give a bs answer to get you out of their face. The pay isn't high enough for what you have to go through honestly. Promises of advancement, but every move is a lateral move. Titles change without pay. VERY HIGH turnover rate. Several people being wrongfully terminated. Some managers actively looking for reasons to fire associates and managers as well.

    Advice to Management

    This company will never change. You aren't really concerned about your employees. Upper management is more concerned about what's going on directly with upper management. You will cut jobs of the front line reps before stepping down or really fixing the problems. Take a look at how your surveys are setup also. A rep shouldn't be held responsible for a survey where a customer says they are not happy with the bank. You're firing associates for bad surveys now and some of those calls are out of control of the rep. You aren't taking those calls and you're probably oblivious to what you're reading. I challenge you to really look into what you guys are putting into place. VISIT the sites and talk to associates. Things are being swept under the rug at all levels.

    Flexible hours. You can work from home. Friendly co -workers. Good vacation policy.

    Most of the work is done at offshore. So you hardly get a chance to learn. Too many middle managers
