    I have been working at BB&T full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, good benefits, healthy 401k match, pension, and the work itself is very enjoyable. You get an opportunity to really become part of the fabric of your community and learn who the players are.

    Cons

    Technology is outdated and too many people are BB&T lifers who drink the kool-aid. Constantly changing priorities and too much nepotism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire outside talent with fresh ideas, hold everybody accountable for executing the vision and not just some roles.

    I have been working at BB&T part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    BB&T values family and I love their incentive program.

    Cons

    I wasn't to big on pushing a sale on a customer especially if I knew that they did not need the service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The amount of time you have to stay in your position to post out was a bit extreme.

    Former Employee - Relationship Banker II

    I worked at BB&T part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Part Time benefits (insurance/401k)
    Decent Pay
    Paid Vacation
    Great co-workers

    Cons

    Sales pushy
    Lack of schedule flexibility
    Time off (weird system of vacation selection)
    Bosses throwing you under the bus
    Having to keep a straight face when you'd really like to tell the person in front of you "YOU overdrew. This is completely YOUR fault!)
    Horribly scripted save the world speech to new "clients"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not everyone is able to be universal employee. Being a teller requires a certain set of skills that not everyone is equipped with. The idea that no means not right now is completely false; it means no unless I tell you otherwise. REspect your clients and be more clear with your policies. So many "clients" were taken advantage of because of sneek fees and it was usually senior citizens on fixed budgets.

    Pros

    There is a healthy amount of work-life balance. There are times when the work load can be demanding, but for the most part if you can manage your own schedule it's easy enough. They have great benefits and culture.

    Cons

    Salaries are lower across the board compared to competitors or cross-industry positions.
