Comments on: BofA’s Lewis goes packing http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2009/10/01/bofas-lewis-goes-packing/ Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: The Bell http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2009/10/01/bofas-lewis-goes-packing/comment-page-1/#comment-71 Thu, 01 Oct 2009 16:20:43 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/columns/?p=351#comment-71 I wouldn’t compare Bank of America to film noir. At least by the end of your usual film noir you can figure out who done the dirty deeds.

BofA is more like film rouge-blanc-bleu, avec Paulson and Bernanke cosily wrapped in its infinite burning acetate flag of deceit. With Lewis no longer strung along by sinister Federal puppeteers, he may do well to embark on a new career in mystery writing, before the Lynch mob closes in.

America would pay good money to read that coming-of-age novel.

The wages are low, the work pile was magnified by the high turn over rates and layoffs from the beginning of the year. The most stomach churning part that I detested was the forced sales pitches that everyone in the retail banking of Bofa had to put upon customers. The unnecessary retail products forced on the public by the slick sales pitch and the hundreds and thousands of fees collected from the unsuspecting public when they could not meet these guidelines that came with the so called “free” accounts.

Since then, BofA lost its ability to lend and its raison d’etre as a bank, and I moved my business with them elsewhere.
I might return now that Lewis is leaving.
