There are member organizations in this "program"? I find that ridiculous! Not one of the benefits of being in the bank [...] at work program is actually a benefit of the program. Every feature they list is open to personal account holders (e.g., online banking, direct deposit, no debit charge liability (this one is federally mandated I think)...).

The manager did say that she was happy to open a new acct for me, but couldn't
guarantee 100% that the $100 will show up in my acct. (due to the fact that my
company name came back as a "No") FYI, my current employer is the one of the
four biggest pharmaceutical companies in the US.
I ended up not opening the acct and left BoA.
