    Pros

    Team atmosphere and management is willing to listen to any feedback and will address without negative consequences. Your peers are often very helpful when encountering difficulties or needs for your team. Great Benefits and programs for Associates.

    Cons

    Job depends on available projects. If a project budget is cut, so may your job. You can encounter challenging and demanding managers (being prepared and willing to follow-up in a timely manner helps address their questions/concerns) on project teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Core values are wonderful principles to follow consistently. Decisions made at the highest level may not always consider the impact downstream.

    Pros

    Great benefits package and perks.

    Cons

    The company is not fit for the mortgage industry. They are a bank trying to do mortgages without a full understanding that urgency and accuracy goes hand in hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bonus package for mortgage professionals are below industry standard

    Former Employee - Mortgage Underwriter in Marietta, GA (US)
    Former Employee - Mortgage Underwriter in Marietta, GA (US)

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very generous pay and bonuses. As a mortgage underwriter I worked long hours but was paid for the OT. I received raises yearly, and bonuses at the end of the year and for other reasons.

    Cons

    The industry has become extremely difficult due to government regulations which make it too time consuming to cover all the bases multiple times on every loan. The company has to go way overboard in every area to avoid being sued or fined by the government as "examples". . This translates to checklists for checklists for checklists which is extremely unproductive and actually counterproductive.

    The company requires way too much training in areas that are not relevant to the position they hold. This slows production and prevents quotas being met. Train in areas that are relevant to the position and/or the person's particular areas of need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire well experienced processors who take pride in their work as a springboard to becoming underwriters. Train the ones you have. That creates a future flow of knowledgeable underwriters and lessons the hassle to the borrowers. This speeds up the whole process and creates less headache for the borrowers.

    Being a teller was an excellent first job, but it did get stressful

    Former Employee - Teller in Atlanta, GA (US)
    Former Employee - Teller in Atlanta, GA (US)

    I worked at Bank of America part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    BoA provides the following: great benefits, good pay, a sturdy foundation for college student seeking a job in the industry. Training is paid and thorough. You get discounts on certain things, like movie tickets. Their time-off policies are also fair. Your teammates are supportive and helpful (depending on the banking center).

    Cons

    Scheduling was not flexible and you constantly feel pressured to offer products to the customer. You have to be overly friendly, which seems unnecessary and annoying to the customer. If you work at an extended hours branch, you will probably not have much free time. Every banking center is different and the banking center team may either work together efficiently or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The HR department needs to state to potential employees whether or not scheduling will be flexible, because it creates problems later on the road. Also, some of the sales goals are overly exaggerated. Some employees have to do too much extra work if the banking center is understaffed. It is ridiculous to make someone do two different jobs and not even try to hire someone.

    I worked at Bank of America full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company with great people and benefits. There are a lot of great processes in place to ensure a smooth workflow and people are treated fairly.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge has been to need to do more with less. Every year it gets harder and harder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to find a process that works and continue to better that process instead of every two years making a complete makeover based on the latest business trend. A departments name doesn't need to change every two years if they are still doing the same work supporting the same people.

    Pros

    Good benefits package. They have a fitness center downstairs that is free to all BOA employees

    Cons

    People are stuck up and stuffy and they will over work their employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting like you're better than everyone else just because you have a MANAGER title.....CLEARLY a title that SOME OF YOU.......DO NOT NEED AT ALL.

    Pros

    Working for BOA is great!!!!!

    Cons

    Working with people like Matt Johnson and his boss Mike who are racist. They are using Keyshauna, an Africa America lady to fire all her management team that are black and she is too stupid to see it or she doesn't care. They are slickly moving people with high pay out the door

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
