    Pros

    Work life balance is good most of the time. People are friendly.

    Cons

    Going through growing pains right now and senior leadership is struggling to align, which is making it difficult on the middle managers and rank and file to get work done.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time working together on the vision for the company and the organizational structure, especially between business and technology groups.

    Pros

    They are a strong and stable bank. Well known in the market with a good reputation among business owners. They can typically beat competition on rates.

    Cons

    The technology is from the 80's. Limited promotion, very much tied to being in the right place at the right time. It can be difficult to get credit officers to think outside the box unless they have seen it dozens of times.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology and people

    Pros

    The employees that I worked with were one of the great benefits of working at BB&T. Allowed for opportunities to grow and develop in your career path by providing some internal and external training. Benefits were great.

    Cons

    Decisions should be made based on facts, not politics.

    Advice to Management

    Do not put individuals in leadership or manager roles that know nothing about the specific type of business.

    Pros

    Great company culture. Mission is very strong, a lot of teamwork, and exceptional ethics. They strive to be the best for their clients, and have a great heritage and reputation. I'm in one if the newer markets and there is a lot of excitement for the upcoming opportunities to build profit and market share.

    Cons

    Being an exempt employee, the pay structure can be challenging. It's hard to make it on the lowest pay grid for incentive, also a lot is taken out from the paycheck for taxes and medical. The communication between opportunities for advancement and employees needs to be communicated better. Feels limited mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with your team, be a mentor and help them succeed by promotion as well as provide guidance to achieve the higher payouts.

    Pros

    This job has great benefits and they match your 401k plan. You're not made to sell products however you must call people a couple times a day. Plus, I only worked every 3rd Saturday. It was required that you work every Saturday. It's a great entry level job for someone who has normal retail experience. Paid holidays as well.

    Cons

    Had very catty women working there making the environment unbearable. My manager didn't push his team a lot.He spent more time in his office watching sports on his phone instead of going out and getting clientele for the branch. They also have many unnecessary rules and it's easy to get in trouble over small things as a teller.

    Advice to Management

    Get more males to work as tellers for your company. Women can be very catty and high school like. Thoroughly interview the people who are prospects for working there because a lot of times, these people are putting on fake facades.
