    I have been working at BB&T full-time for more than a year

    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.

    I have been working at BB&T part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Little work, clients are mostly the elderly, or from out of state.

    Walk in traffic not as much as Chase, so you definitely have a lot of down time.

    Great employees, great bank to work at that actually appreciates their employees and want to help clients

    Cons

    Sales goals. But you will get that at every single bank.
