Pros

There are some great people that work at BofA. The corporate vision is clearly stated and there is very little ambiguity as to each employee fits into their role. They have a very strong benefits package and the starting wage is decent. BofA also like to promote from within and spend a lot of time developing associates, so someone with a desire to pursue a career in banking and a clear idea what they want can advance very quickly through the hierarchy.

Cons

This is a massive corporation and it can often feel that way. There is a lot of talk of "360* coaching," but it is clear that the directions come from the top and flow downward. The business focus regularly cycles back and forth from being focused on customer service to serving the bottom line. The working environment can vary greatly from branch to branch and can depend upon who is in charge.

Advice to Management

Take the idea of "360* coaching" to heart and listen to everyone, from tellers to vault techs, and not just the market execs and spreadsheets.

    Pros

    Looks great on a resume and to see if you really want to do it.

    Cons

    Good to figure out what does it take to be a FA but you don't learn anything about work since everyone is too busy to show you and only things you do are data entries, cold calling, and other repetitive jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your interns!
