Bank of America is being sued by an executive who described the bank as a "bros club" and said she was treated and paid unfairly.
Megan Messina, a managing director at the bank, said in her lawsuit she received a bonus of $1.55 million while her male counterpart received $5.5 million despite doing the same work.
The gender discrimination suit also alleges she was excluded from meetings and gatherings with male co-workers, saying she "never stood a chance to be included and therefore never stood a chance to succeed."
