I have learned a lot at Bank of America where there are multiple opportunities provided. Personally, it has been a great learning experience for me and has helped me grow further.

I worked at BAML for nearly 7 years initially when everything moved down from London it was pretty good. Lots of work lots of new challenges and some great opportunities. Unfortunately as it grew it stagnated and became slow and dreary. For a multi billion dollar company they are so stuck in their ways. They waste hours every day across every department using outdated policies and procedures and making every task take considerably longer than is needed. The atmosphere is awful as well People are expected to spend their lives their but in return do not get rewarded fairly at the end of the year. A considerable number employees will not see a pay rise or bonus for years on end. There is a huge number of staff there who are legacy MBNA and the only reason they stay there is because their redundancy packages would be so good.

The upper management structure is awful. They have the same Directors for year on end. They tend to be very much " at their level" most of them have no hope of getting any higher and promotion chances for those underneath them are terrible, People spend years and years trying to get promoted and its mostly entirely at directors discretion. I witnessed people who would get promoted at the drop of a hat because they were in the office for 12 - 13 hours a day but when you looked at their actual output it was very little and people that were there 6 or 7 hours a day were actually working significantly harder. The senior managers very much have their favourites and unless you are in that category you will be largely ignored.


One team when I was there went

Would expect better procedures and internal mobility from a multimillion dollar international bank. Good benefits but the work environment is very americanized

Working as a temporary worker in the post room and loading bay, but I didn't have a great experience, as the managers were disorganised and unhelpful. I wouldn't work there again.

I started as a Security Officer at the Bank of America data site in Camberley and within 12 months obtained the role of Site Manager.
A typical day consisted of managing a team of 25+ staff and ensuring they had received the relevant training and instructions to carry out their roles.

I interacted with the Bank of America staff on site as well as Senior Members of staff within the Bank of America Security department which I found to be very rewarding.

The most difficult part of my role was trying to anticipate the Customers requirements but found that the communication lines between myself and the Customer helped in this area

I have a great time in my tenure as a contract worker at Bank of America. The people in the team I worked with were very professional but were also great fun to work with. I learned that despite the fact that they were facing redundancy due to the team being phased out, they soldiered on regardless with their day to day attitude which was very inspiring. They were also very helpful and no questions were too much trouble to take the time to answer. The hardest part was that we all had to say our goodbyes, which we did in style on the last day, having a good meal to celebrate our time together.

It's a great firm , good benefits however if you don't have a direct connection to the exact area HR does not triage applications well at all. No large firm does really and too many People are hired in positions below their skill sets.

changes took place daily, but processes were almost never documented, the handover was chaotic and sometimes non existant, if it wasnt for a vindictive co worker I would have still worked there

Nice colleagues, training is not effective, management are in a competition against each other, creating shift ism.

Offices are run down and equality should run across all shifts.
