Pros

BB&T provides excellent benefits. The company is in a relatively strong financial position and growing.

Cons

With the growth that has occurred lately, the client center focus that BB&T has been known for is now second to earnings and goals. It is starting to feel very similar to many of the big banks. The culture is changing from the top down.

Advice to Management

Focus needs to be placed on taking care of your good employees. Senior management should consider the financial and psychological impacts of them receiving large bonuses and stock options as the mid-level management works to get a 1 to 2% salary increase. The culture is changing from client centered to a policy and product driven culture.

    If you are looking into retail banking turn the other direction and run.

    Pros

    Good public perception, strong capital levels, 6% 401k match, pension.

    Cons

    POOR technology base. Relatively low salary and 2% or less annual increases (if you get one at all). Branch managers and their employees are brainwashed and cannot successfully complete work load. Service mentality has become overrun with sales first, sales second, service third. Unrealistic goals. Incredibly confusing goal structure, even the creators do not know what's going on most of the time. Upper-level management suffers from a huge disconnect. With record profits, many of us wonder where all the profits go to, it sure doesn't to go salaries of the front line employees. Retail managers are annually reviewed/promoted by regional managers that visit branches maybe 8 times or less a year. I work 50++ hours a week for a salary that is at least 20k lower than the average competitor.

    Advice to Management

    There is no point in giving advice, the company is so silo'd they would never here my faint suggestions. Stop trying to be a small bank when all you care about is growing into the next BofA...without the tech, infrastructure and support.

    Pros

    perhaps their overall compensation benefits...but it's a lie and joke to say the pay is 'competitive', if you negotiate a 'good' salary, you 'may' be fine, but trying to really go up professionally, or 'relying' on those 'annual raises' ...you will be waiting 10-20 years before you see that 'bump' in compensation

    Cons

    you never 'catch up' with pay, when problems arise, it's more of a 'who to blame, what to blame, rather than what was the problem, or really finding out the root cause of the problem, it's a major - COVER YOUR OWN @$$ environment, see and hear backtracking, saying one thing one moment and something else the next minute...

    Advice to Management

    just understand, that PEOPLE ARE YOUR MOST IMPORTANT ASSET, and when you treat them like dirt, you lose top talent, but in this environment, people are just expendable pawns and just another headcount, to be brought on in the masses on as needed basis..., you don't care about their career/professional growth... the bb&t code of ethics, is the most skewed, delusional view of 'ethics' just call it, our policies to protect the bank and it's interest, and it's a moral enslavement and deterioration for personal integrity of those that really do by the 'standard' of morals and ethics
