    Pros

    Great benefits; one of the few companies that still offer retirement benefits and sick time outside of your vacation time.

    Cons

    Very hard to grow outside of the branch level.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let passionate and loyal employees go to your competitors.

    I worked at BB&T full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Working there felt like family.

    Cons

    Lots of changes happened too rapidly. There was never enough time to adapt to one change before another one was made. This leads to employees being confused. There was not enough opportunities open for promotion at that facility to accommodate the qualified candidates with new, higher paying jobs, The pay could be better. I would often have to work overtime to make a decent check.

    Pros

    Benefits are really good! 9-5 work week is nice. Flexible spending accounts

    Cons

    Un realistic sales goals. Management only cares about sales sales sales!! banking stuck in the 1920s. If you have had a banking postion before this company is nothing like that position. Expect to function as a banker tet be paid and treated as a teller.

    Advice to Management

    Dont be so shady
