    Benefits are pretty good. Current position allows for a great work/life balance.

    For as large as the company is, there is little room to grow due to the size of the department.

    Keep up the work...

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Whiteville, NC

    I worked at BB&T full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are good and the income is decent for the area.

    Cons

    Allows pseudo-nepotism and blatant favoritism to occur simply because certain relationships are outside the "textbook definition" of nepotism. (Whiteville-Call Center) Also, allows the aforementioned employees to stay on the clock for personal business that benefits themselves and management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest looking into the familial ties in your New Accounts and Chat Department in the Whiteville Call Center, because allowing it to continue to go on will eventually result in a lawsuit.

    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.
