"Worked there for 4 years - technical environment was not challenging enough and no one seemed to have the drive to innovate. Most of the work was about maintaining the status quo."

"The below review applies to only the retail banking and mass affluent "Merrill Edge", NOT Merrill Lynch platform. In my opinion, Bank of American places emphasis on individual daily numbers without taking steps to understand fully how those numbers came to be for any individual contributor. Due to its failures to dive deeper in understanding these results, it is not creating a level playing field for same spaced employees; thus alienating and losing top talent due to local management flaws."
