Pros

The culture is a strong part of BB&T. They make a large investment in training and feedback. I had a great manager, who cared about me both personally and professionally. I always felt respected and supported from within the organization.

Cons

The pressure of the banking industry affects all banks, especially large banks like BB&T. There are expected layoffs looming and some departments including commercial banking are feeling the squeeze. Work life balance in commercial and private banking can be very difficult, especially if you are seen as a top performer. Outside pressure causes the bank to be extremely cautious, which makes change slow and work hours inflexible.

Advice to Management

Keep rewarding the performers and top performers. Encourage more day to day fun as an entire culture.

    Pros

    Pay is ok but negotiate up when you get an offer because raises are minimal.

    Cons

    Growth is minimal for non LDP grads

    LDP doesn't like internal candidates; It does happen but its rare.

    A lot of in fighting with some groups in the wealth division

    Advice to Management

    Provide cross training and advancement opps. JobAwareness doesn't mean anything if your mgr kills your app because they want you to stay and make them look good.
