What persuaded you to work for Bank of America?

I joined Bank of America because of its great focus on people.

Bank of America offers structured onboarding training, selective training curriculum, and well-organized cross business lines sharing. There are also plenty of opportunities to learn different products and businesses when working with different stakeholders. When I know the company I work for is investing in my development, I know I am making the right decision.  

Bank of America’s focus on people is beyond its teammates. Before joining, I knew the bank highly valued contributing to the community. Currently, I am working for CSR team in Beijing where we give back to our community by volunteering, charity donations, and supporting NGOs. I am proud of the impact we are making, which keeps me motivated.

 

What does a typical day look like for you?

There is no typical day for the corporate banking team which makes my job more exciting and fascinating.

As a corporate banking associate, my days are client-centric. On some days I spend time with bankers in client meetings where we discuss financial plans and business operation to explore deal opportunities.

On other days I spend time with product teams and back office teams to align our capabilities, benchmark industry practices, and strategize client pitches. I also conduct industry deep dives, regulatory policy studies, and product reviews to be better equipped for client discussion.

It is important to have solid quantitative and qualitative analytical skills. Both are the foundations to develop an advanced understanding of operation models, financial statements, and deal opportunities. People skills, communication skills, and time management are also critical for client facing business.

 

How do you describe the culture at the bank?

Bank of America embraces a diverse and inclusive culture. We have many resources allocated to employee networks that focus on improving individual cultural competency. In addition, one of the best things about the bank is that everyone is extremely open-minded and trustworthy. I can always seek senior bankers’ advice either on a specific deal or career development. Suggestions or ideas are always welcomed by my team.
