    Pros

    Decent pay, vacation accures quickly

    Micro management, short staff

    I would recommend hiring more full time, which would cut down on the short staffing problem.

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good! There even better if you are signed up for the Peak Health program. The vacation package would be better if you could buy days again.

    Cons

    Management is non existent! People (employees) walk all over you. There is no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Get managers with a backbone and a fair head on their shoulders. .

    Pros

    I enjoy the holidays and benefits that come with the job. The hours are always a plus for me since I came from working in retail. The people I work with are supportive and helpful.

    Cons

    The staffing is an issue from time to time. They don't always follow through with certain things that they say they will assist you with. The changes occurring in the company are so frequent that you have to constantly adjust.

    Advice to Management

    Try minimizing all the changes that are implemented at one time and show more appreciation for your employees on a consistent basis.


  6. If you're under the right management, its a great place to work with great opportunities.

    Pros

    BB&T is a solid company/bank that isnt going anywhere anytime soon. The benefits are GREAT! Salary is okay. Higher then most banks.

    Cons

    Depending on what branch you are in, dont think about having a life of the weekends. They will make you work every Saturday even when it is suppose to be 'rotated'.

    Pros

    The only plus is the 80 hours of sick leave you get a year. This can be used for your children, spouse, or yourself.

    Cons

    Benefits are not good. Healthcare for a family of 5, I pay $495.00 per paycheck. Copays are $35.00, I am not sure why there are so many reviews saying the benefits are great. I left Bank of America to come here and my benefits were much better. I had 4 weeks vacation. Here I got 2 weeks. Healthcare was $305.00 per paycheck. Technology is outdated and management does not provide training and is not evolved at all. Good ole boys network. Branches might be different but corporate BB&T is AWFUL.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training and leadership. Don't treat satellite offices like step children. If you are not in Wilson or TX then you don't exist.


  8. Company is very conservative and old school

    Pros

    Has been successful in not having a high turnover rating

    Cons

    advancement opportunity and pay is not competitive to others in the industry

    Advice to Management

    my advice would be to get all of their departments on one accord no matter what location the department is in. You should have the same professional experience at all locations of one company.

    Pros

    The Company inself is solid, with the bottom line always a focus.

    Cons

    The Central Virginia Leadership is comprised of the same type of person, gender, and age. There is no diversity and no decision making ability by the Area Managers.

    Advice to Management

    Look for new and fresh ideas, outside your region on how to conduct business. Lead through inspiration.
