I have been working at Bank of America full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good benefits and plenty of opportunity to move around the company. The best way to make more money is to move around (which is encouraged).

Cons

Seemingly constant organization changes can be demoralizing as coworkers are let go (especially very strong performers). It can also be frustrating to have to deal with multiple managers and/or jobs (up to 4 in one year for me). You really need to maintain a positive attitude and adapt to change quickly. Benefits have tumbled the last few years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be clear about the purpose for organization changes and ensure it's not being done to boost a new executive ego. Model the behavior you'd like to be seen from those you manage and if you are a "manager of managers" make sure you conduct a skip level conversation with your 2-down at least twice a year. Stay competitive on benefits and support the MyWork (work from home) program.

    Pros

    It is a very large company with opportunities in fields that would not normally be associated with a bank.

    Cons

    The workload is sometimes more than average and it is a very metric driven company. The metrics can come off as micro managing.

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Big organization with ample opportunities, and it becomes more international in the past few years. Easy to change jobs within the organization

    Cons

    network is as important as skill set if not more. The departments are very much focused in their own world, and sometime it is not very easy to navigate the organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen more and less meetings
