    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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
