    Pros

    very good company to work for if you have a good manager

    Cons

    They are keen on sales which is a change for what they were advocating for before

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the Managers some of them are simply not qualified to be Branch Managers. Watch out for the nepotism that is rising and therefore you end up being short changed when it comes to quality employees.

    I have been working at SunTrust

    Pros

    I enjoyed trying to meet my goals and train my staff

    Cons

    Corporate strategies and focus changed back and forth from year to year like a pendulum between a sales focus and tight operational controls. Too much focus on shareholders and not enough focus on customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be proactive and not reactive in setting corporate goals

    Pros

    Your voice is heard. Management is always available and ready to help. There is a lot of room for growth

    The Pros of this Position is that you have weekends off.

    The pay is low and the upward mobility is longer than one would expect to have

    Think smaller. You are getting in your own way when you do not listen to the people you are managing.

    I have been working at SunTrust as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Hours were not too demanding (compared to other banks), everyone is willing to help with any questions you may have, team environment, great company culture.

    Cons

    I found that I was not busy at all during some parts of the summer with no work to do, but then near quarter end the work piles on and seems as if it is never ending.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for interns to meet with other parts of the bank and see what other departments do and how they function.
