I worked at BB&T full-time for more than a year

Pros

Incredibly rewarding benefits package which emphasizes and rewards optimum health for all employees. They actually paid me extra to maintain good health.

Cons

This company seems to not care much how an employee performs but caters to those who have been there for a long time period and can make it unfair for newer employees. I earned countless rewards for superior performance but was still treated like a piece of dirt. This company says they are "for employees" but they're not, at least in terms of work environment! I could sometimes be scheduled one day to open @6:45 am and work til 1pm yet the next day not come in til 1 or 2 pm and work until 6:30 pm. Schedule sucked and I almost always worked 6 days/week.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a closer look at how each days runs at a branch. Open your eyes to the reality of day to day life for your employees. Reports can only reveal so much!!

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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?
