Current Employee - Relationship Banker  in  Dalton, GA

Pros

At the time that I was there, benefits were excellent (a lot better than most places in this general area, I think). Co-workers and branch manager were overall good to work with. I had to leave work sick one time and the manager was really okay about it. She didn't get upset, threaten my job, or anything like that. At the time, it could be short handed at times so there were some overtime opportunities which always helps.

Cons

I don't feel that senior management really knew what employees in the branch had to deal with day to day or were even interested in learning what branch employees dealt with every day. They seemed to nit pick over things that really were not of importance and the sales goals were unrealistic. They actually expected you to make sales calls at a customer's work number if they were not at home.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ease up on the sales goals and expectations about cold calling. Some people will get upset and bank elsewhere if you keep having Relationship Bankers call and bug them everyday especially at their work number. Spend a few days in a branch and see what it is really like. When you do that, really listen to the employee concerns there. Good customer service for your existing customers will make them loyal to the bank not call after call at their home and business.

    BB&T is a financially secure institution

    Pros

    BB&T is a financially secure institution and thus far has weathered the economic storm welll. BB&T is a large regional bank but (for the most part) is run like a community bank. This allows the leadership for each region to have some input on how their region is managed. BB&T has strong core values including honesty, integrity, productivity, team work, independant thinking, pride, justice, reason, self esteem and pride. BB&T uses it's core values to guide their everyday relationships with clients and employees. It is definately the most ethical organization that I have ever worked. The CEO takes the time to vist each region quarterly and update its employees on BB&T's past successes and where it sees the future of BB&T.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems that manangement doesn't value employees that aren't in a direct "sales" role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes a contribution to the team isn't measured by a large sales figure.
