    Pros

    BB&T provides excellent training and opportunities for growth. They have very good benefits and opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    The sales mentality has increased to a point that I worry that it will override the values and culture of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems that in order to achieve the increased sales goals on leaders, work-life balance will suffer.

    Pros

    Great company. Products for new moms are great. Company values to service to Mothers and provided various other company gifts to help mom on getting discounts on products. The leadership is different due to the fact most are out of town. This job has plenty communication thur email and texting but the job gets done.

    Cons

    Some days you may go in to work and there is no work. No money is earned when no babies are born.

    Pros

    Good training program, continual training depending upon your position. Very good people within the company, they strongly believe in expecting you to give your very best and only hire people who show those qualities and possess the values required of BB&T.

    Cons

    Could use more hands on training after the "school" type training ends prior to being put in the new position. Sometimes when the branches are understaffed it puts strain upon the existing employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emphasize teamwork by showing you as well are part of the team. Be there to mentor employees and for advisement as needed.

    Pros

    They pay for your health/dental/ vision insurance
    Big company treats you like family.
    Even the little guy can get a word in to the head honcho
    If you're not satisfied with your current position there is room for growth.

    Cons

    Banking has changed and regulations have been more strict. Banking has definitely become more sales based because of the internet revolution.
    Corporate America need I say more?
