    Like working here

    Commercial Banker (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsInternal re focus to better align people skills to target market. I like the direction this position is going.

    ConsThe internal systems seem to be a mis-mash of programs. Nothing seems to pull data together with ease. This isn't much different than other banks I've worked for but it would be nice for a financial institution to keep up with our client base with respect to systems.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    SunTrust is a great place to work and build a career.

    Financial Services Representative (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    Prosgood company, strong fundamentals, good culture and lots of opportunity. If you are ambitious it will be recoanized and usually quickly.

    ConsThere really are none, except it can feel like you are removed from managment...especially upper management at times. The computer systems are old...very old. Branch Managers do exactly what they are told and there is little room to inovation or thinking outside the box. it's kind of a do what you are told culture. if you are a few mintues late to work, you will get writen up and someone will read the company policy on being late. you get treated like a child and that's becuase most assistant managers are only doing thier job because they are waiting to get promoted to another department outside of retail.

    Advice to Senior Managementlet the little guys know what is going on. Please, please, please upgrade the computer systems in the retail bracnhes. It's old, antiquated, and no one likes using them. Even clients recognize this.

    A wonderful company to work for !

    Branch Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat people ! Great learning experience ! Serious about good customer service ! SunTrust has a superb training program designed to develop the best professionals in the banking industry.

    ConsNot having enough support from upper management when extremely necessary. Sometimes you are out on your own. It could be isolated to my area, but communicating the real issues sometimes seems like career suicide.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHelp the branches in need of new equipment and full staff.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
