BB&T has great values and an awesome mission... but they don't live by it... actions speak louder than words

I worked at BB&T

Pros

- Benefits (pension and 401k)
- Great HR department

Cons

- Annual Performance plans 2% raise if a Very Good Performer? PATHETIC
- Very low pay compared to other places
- Terrible management
- Managers are worked to death- averaged 12 hour days and worked Saturdays
- Conference calls- how about work smarter, not harder? If you want sales performance, dont tie your employees up on a conference call that is pointless
- No recognition
- Managers who get recognized work in branches where everything gets handed to them
- Dont work for the retail side
- Senior management is selfish and wont promote you to a job you want if they want you to stay where you are.
- Some how confidential conversations go public and all of the employees find out
- managements lack of professionalism is hidden in the professional dress they want their employees to wear (panty hose? Seriously?... its 90 degrees outside)...
- Overall..... they need new management- its important for employees to see that you care about your family as much as you care about your job....

    I have been working at BB&T

    Pros

    A few reasons are good benefits and stability.

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities. Managers have no interest in improving overall efficiency because they fear loosing their jobs! They have been there for 20+ years and are very resistant to innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee survey is good but follow up and action is what is needed!!!
