I have been working at BB&T

Pros

Decent pay, decent benefits. Occasionally work from home at individual manage's discretion. Professional membership
dues paid. Did not need TARP money.

Cons

Very siloed company. Little cooperation or compromise across departments.
Many promotions are completely mystifying (who you know). Upper
management very plugged in to good ol' boy network (it's a southern
company).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be bolder, especially in the areas of technology and acquisitions.

    A very political company with room to grow based on who you know, not what you know.

    Pros

    A few good things about BB&T are:
    - decent benefits
    - some flexibility depending on who you report to
    - one of the few companies that offer 401k and Pension benefits

    Cons

    - extremely political
    - no room to climb up the corporate ladder
    - false implications around employee morale
    - expects you to give 200% but will not reward you appropriately
    - retention is low
    - consistently using the economy as a hurdle, however, the overall company is doing extremely well in the financial industry
    - no reward and recognition for most

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - 360 feedback/coaching would be helpful
    - do more for the sake of employees
    - stop sending false messages to employees (i.e. - saying you're going to increase employee moral and then do nothing for it)
