Pros

Most employees are very good people who are great to work with and are trying to do the right thing. There are very few people who play games or back stab. Employees are treated fairly and promotions and pay increases go to those who contribute the most (sure, there are always a few exceptions when you have a company of this size).

Cons

Some work locations are not very exciting (Lumberton NC, Whiteville NC, Charleston WV, etc.). Many buildings are old and in desparate need of updating. Like many companies, the sales side gets the most recognition while the back office isn't recognized as much for successes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Executive management needs to delegate more and give the authority to act. All of the executives are involved in almost everything that goes on at BB&T. That worked great for a smaller bank, but needs to change now that its a large bank.

    Pros

    The benefits are unparallelled. Matching 401K, pension, full healthcare, vision, and dental make this a great place to work.

    Cons

    My particular position has very little room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    They have an awesome stock reward program for employees. Each time you win the teller of the year award you are given stock and a elegant dinner. They have great medical benefits. The District management left a lot to be desired. She would barrel her way into the bank and critize the whole time she was present.

    Cons

    The selling is pushed so much y ou feel like a used car salesman. The clients and immediate management was great but BB&T requires the employees to offer products and services to every client that qualifies. This creates a very stressful atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down on the selling if clients are happy they will want services.
