I worked at BB&T

Pros

there are some tremendous people employed here, and a strong internal sense of accomplishment. The mid level management team is committed to success and there is a strong training program.

Cons

EXTREMELY siloed and very poor communication. John Allison leaving was a severe lost. The different channels do not function well together and senior management is a good old boys clib

    I have been working at BB&T

    Pros

    They spend a lot of time in helping you develop, if your not comfortable calling clients, they will help you. Incentive for products sold is also nice. You also get recognized when you do something they feel will help other RB's

    Cons

    It's hard to move up if you don't have a degree. Also if you're at a slow branch, you will be making lots of calls to get your sales up. If you have a bad manager, then Godspeed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to criticism and use it to your advantage, don't be afraid to make calls, the worst thing that can happen is they tell you "no" or they hang up on you

    I worked at BB&T

    Pros

    Clean and professional environment, good friendly people, solid knowledge base, measured in approach to just about everything, benefits are okay but mainly if you can accrue some time, executive management visible, lots of talk about values at regional management level.

    Cons

    Pay is average at best, pay increases are limited, conservative, wacky incentive structure, set your hour glass for decisions to be made, email reliant, too many meetings, certain non performers can hide, bad news delivered via proxy,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let some of the Winston-Salem second level staff out in the field at least once per year

    No opinion of CEO
