    I worked at BB&T full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, strong financials with multiple business lines. Provides wide range of product and service offerings to customers.

    Cons

    Siloed work environment. No decisions made at local level although they claim they model themselves as a community bank. If you are a forward thinker don't expect to be heard with any degree of sincerity. Every aspect of the business is scripted with little room to integrate your own personality...robotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time listening to the front line and not the managers that will yes you to death. Trust in the relationships that front line employees have with customers that will create long term loyal relationships. Need new blood in key managment positions.

    I worked at BB&T full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    loved all fellow co-workers, great networking opportunity through surrounding small business, plenty of opportunities for training.

    Cons

    micro-managed by Branch Manager, robotic and phony scripts are given to the point of embarrassment. no room for advancement, sales goals that are met are never appreciated. The worst part was the assumption you have no life outside of work, you are walked on, expected to come in when called on weekends or vary your schedule at the drop of a dime, expected to work ten hour days with only 30 minute break multiple times a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your employees to flourish in their own way, discuss creative ideas with them and how they could grow, but not my the conventional use of "scripts".. I would encourage regional managers to come in to branches more often to observe what actually goes on in the branch.
