    I worked at BB&T full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    BB&T takes pride in training. I would say they have one of the BEST training programs in town.

    Benefits/Compensation (Total Package) is on par with what you expect in the Washington DC Metropolitan area.

    Cons

    BB&T's Leadership is way out of touch with the current situation of retail banking. With the aid of technology (e.g., mobile banking), consumers do not have the need to come into the branches as much; however the goals remain extremely high - almost unachievable. Tactics used to reach your individual goals is questionable at best.

    The retail branch is run by Branch Bankers (formerly known as Relationship Bankers). Your Market Leader (Branch Manager) is focused on loans and building the business pipeline. However, in most branches your Market Leader will say it's up to the Branch Banker to ensure they have Planed Purposeful Call (PPCs) on their calendar. So, in essence you have to build your individual pipeline as well as your Market Leader pipeline.

    BB&T provides wonderful sales tools (e.g., Hoovers), but in most cases it will not turn into sale opportunities. They also provide you internal list, but nothing to promising comes from the leads.

    Your best bet of survival at this bank is to go into an ideal branch where everyone works together (this includes Market Leaders), work at a busy branch, or adopt some questionable sales tactics.

    In sum, if you're seeking a Branch Banker position, you have to have your sales game on par. They [BB&T] will tell you they are here for the consumer, but really it what's in it for them. If you are about building a meaningful relationship with your customer-THIS IS NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU!!

    SPECIAL NOTE: If you don't hit goals, be prepared for the boot. This is the message that was delivered to employees a week ago by senior leadership: "We got help them to the door as fast as possible"

    Being a hard worker and nice DOES not pay off....SALES IS THE NAME OF THE GAME...NO EXCUSE. Don't make numbers, be prepared for a call night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to basics. Provide emotional intelligence training for your Market Leaders. Come from behind the desk and work a week in the branches. You create these LOFTY goals and blame employees for not reaching them when they are in most cases unattainable.
