Pros

As above, a very supportive management and training structure that quickly responds to an employee's desire to learn and grow. Also, their benefits package is quite good, their LifeForce wellness program can guide you on a path to health and if you meet those goals, your bi-weekly health insurance premiums become a small monetary bonus! How many companies in this day and age PAY YOU to have health insurance and stay in shape? Very, Very ethical sales structure that puts the client first in more than superficial ways. All in all, a company run by decent people that has managed, through conservative risk management at all levels, to do pretty well in the recession and stay out of the news for sketchy lending behaviors. Employees feel a sense of pride at working for a bank that is one of a very few "good guys" out there.

Cons

They hire in at mid-point salaries but promote to minimums. This makes it a GREAT place to start working at, but not a very satisfying company to grow with since months or years of effort towards another promotion typically lead to minuscule increases. (eg. 29k to 30k when a new hire would make 36k) This policy, which many companies seem to have- not just BB&T (which I can't quite understand) causes a weird makeup of long time, high performing employees making significantly less (15-20%) than their new-hire colleagues. Note- all this is in reference to retail side.

Advice to Management

Fix the compensation system if you want to retain employees, promoted employees should receive pay equal to what a new hire would receive upon starting in the same position.

    Pros

    They paid more on the hour than my previous employer.

    Cons

    Horrible management and if they don't like you then they will try to get you fired even if they have to make something up on no evidence. All of this being done of course during your probationary period.

    Advice to Management

    Stay close to the supervisors and use good judgement not leaving new hires at the mercy of rude and hateful supervisors and enployees.

    Pros

    Great team approach and good automated back office systems made servicing multiple branches very manageable . Very customer-centric culture... Perfect Client Experience mantra is a winner!

    Cons

    Old School Sales Management... hit your quota or be replaced... churn and burn, baby! Compensation plan for commissions could be more generous.

    Advice to Management

    What costs more, continuous high turnover or mentoring good people who have the desire and are willing to invest the effort to constantly improve until they consistently meet some arbitrary sales quota?
