Financial Solution advisor also known as FSA

Bank of America will pay for you to go to Maryland or North Carolina for training. They will book you in a 5-star hotel and will provide you with free meals. They will even pay you per diem every day. In other words, you get free meals and per diem. The training lasts about 5-7 days. The trainers claim that Bank of America has the Best Training Program in the WORLD. In my opinion, it is below-average training. I asked other FSA what they think about the training and they said it was below average or average.Most people come out of training and cannot remember what the training was about. If you are a new FSA but worked in the bank of America as a relationship banker or held other positions in the Bank of America then you have an advantage. Furthermore, you may succeed as FSA because of that. But if you are a new FSA and never worked for Bank of America then I wish you good luck. It is a lot of work and pressure on the job. In other words, this is a high-pressure sales job. Most people cannot remember what the training was about. Every 2 hours or so there is a 20-30-minute break. I think the trainers want to finish their duties as soon as they can because they only have 6-7 days to do it Most people do not learn by just looking. Most people learn by doing. But trainers are more concerned with the visual process but not actual hands-on. Remember they have to go over so much stuff so hands-on experience takes time. Therefore, the visual process is faster. I think that is why most people are confused. The FSA computer crashes from time to time. You need -

Great people and management

I had a great Sale's Manager but the monthly goals were extremely aggressive. Really enjoyed the technology and people I worked with but BOA runs a bit of a churn and burn operation.

Good place to work

Other than the additional expectations of having to stay late 3 days a week for calls and appointment setting, the job is straight forward and compensation is great.

Bad culture

Corporate feel and very much dictatorship. Management does not care about employees. Manager was actually trying to refuse time off to go to my own wedding. Sales Goals very unrealistic and Training almost Non Existent. Very Stressful.

I enjoy my job at Bank of America. The work culture is good. We have benefits that are better than my previous company. The pay is good. Management is pretty good too. The only constructive criticism is that they should hire more people.

Typical corporate setting

Sales goals are unrealistic for First-time Advisors. The development program is a mess. You will end up figuring everything out for yourself. Be prepared to cold call and attend pointless meetings. People are very friendly until you end up competing with them to get on teams. Be ready to sell your soul.

Not a place i liked to work

Unfortunately bank America does not want to do mortgage loans,but they have to, so they don't they do everything they can not to complete a loan. From my experience management was not focused on the client or the employee but always on the bottom line. There definitely is a balance between all 3 but not at BOA.

Great team and manager doesn't always get you ahead

Even with strong success, an awesome manager, and a great team, sometimes the environment restricts career advancement. Competition for the next level in intense, and only so many options exist beyond a manager role. Also, the lack of outreach programs involving financial literacy and teaching was disappointing as I love to do that and assist where I can.

Sales Driven and High Levels of Stress

A typical day consist of checking email and following up on client needs and making a sale. I've learned that everything is about numbers and meeting quota. Management is strong and goal driven, workplace is varied with strong sales objectives and professionally driven. Hardest part of the job is overcoming objection and making a difference. Most enjoyable is making a difference in people's lives and exceeding expectation.

Pros

Company wide recognition

Cons

Working with difficult clients making a difference
