I worked at BB&T

Pros

The benefits are wonderful, and of course working 8:30-5:15 was amazing. BB&T really is a great company, and they promote women really well on the retail side. If you are a great performer you will make great incentives and they definitely notice.

Cons

VERY male dominated. Anyone with a salary about 50000 is a male. Also BB&T pays horribly, I recently started with another bank making 10k more. Also being a RB doesn't provide much opportunity for advancement in other banks because you won't have any credit experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure you're holding on to your top performers...don't let them leave because you guys are penny pinching. Also make sure you allow opportunities for women to advance on the commercial side.

    I have been working at BB&T

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at BB&T

    Pros

    The benefits are expensive but expansive. Many different options when it comes to retirement planning and insurance. Also competitive business products.

    Cons

    If you don't mind working 6 days a week and 13 hour work days, please apply to this company. I used to work for this company and it was difficult to even have a home life outside of BB&T. They were not concerned about anything but the bottom line, with unattainable goals and ridiculous incentive plan. When I started I was intrigued by the rigorous training program and the opportunity to earn half my salary in bonuses. Well that was all I got, training and a dream. Brainwashed to learn the culture and expected to live it in my everyday life. Basically live for BB&T. So if you choose them, don't fall for the dreams they sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have none as if management would listen anyway. Then again, stop focusing on the three legged stool of how to make profits, instead get back into the customer service business and help people.
