Does Bank of America offer massages?

Pros

Daily work load is very reasonable, never had to work overtime. Great benefits including paternity leave, up to 20k family planning expense reimbursement, good insurance rates. Work was interesting and there was no limit on what projects you could pursue or start to make your team more efficient which I appreciated. Lots of flexibility and good access to senior management.

Cons

Career growth is limited and management is not transparent when it comes to ratings, promotions, and growth. Lots of promises of what will/could happen in the future only to be let down. BAML is not a great place to build a career as they don't reward loyalty at all. It doesn't matter if you spend 5 months, 5 years, or 20 years here, there is not a retirement or any incentive to build a career here financially. In fact, they hire candidates out of college at a discount and barely give raises each year even if you are exceeds/exceeds. You will always be paid lower than the market and you can not jump up unless you leave the firm and come back (which is what everyone does). In my eyes this concept of "attrition is your friend" is disheartening. The building at 135 lasalle is absolutely terrible. Lights were constantly off to save energy and the bathrooms are disgusting. The only perks you get are free coffee, water is from the sink and gross. Feels like working in a basement. Lastly, career opportunities is limited in the Chicago market. They try to make a big deal of internal movement but unless you work in collateral and want to stay there, there is limited opportunities. Every internal job I applied for was rejected by internal HR and when I went to career fairs the managers said I would need to go to CLT or Arizona to be trained before they would consider me....

Advice to Management

Reward loyalty to the company. Pay the fair market rate to your employees so they don't feel pressure to leave the company at all steps in their career. Have more communication/opportunities between teams/departments.
