    Pros

    Great people, great environment. Company is trying to do right by its employees for the most part.

    Cons

    No internal promotions, Only the very few lucky enough to work on high profile sales or projects get above average ratings and cost of living raises that go along with it.

    Pros

    Above average pay/ compensation. Hard work can be generously rewarded with quarterly incentive bonus payouts

    Cons

    Compliance dept refuses to let licensed bankers discuss investments in any manner w/ clients. Not sure why they have a licensed position if you can't use it.

    Pros

    Very easy to move up within a matter of months if you're doing what you're supposed to be doing. Sales are important just like most teller jobs now a days.

    Cons

    SunTrust needs to update their systems asap. Plans to do so keep getting put off. Teller system is seriously outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Please work to get the systems updated. This would make for a happier branch banking team.

    Pros

    company is a key player in markets within footprint & dominates in some segments; challenging work environment; collaborative teammates; seasoned commercial bankers with strong credit backgrounds; good growth opportunities if you are flexible to relocate; good compensation structure depending on your job grade, role and location.

    Cons

    outdated technology; constantly evolving strategy which creates disruptions & roll-back of previous initiatives; limited training opportunities for mid-career professionals; siloed lines of business.

    technology investments; address training gaps; give employees time to digest new initiatives between roll-outs; less reactive management style
