Current Employee - Relationship Banker in Knoxville, TN

I have been working at BB&T full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The hours are bankers hours. The 401K plan matches 6 percent and the attendance policy is very lax.

Cons

No upward movement. Very little opportunity for advancement. Raises are 1 to 2 percent annually. Too much emphasis on the numbers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that your employees have a lot of influence with clients. People do not want to bank where employees are unhappy. Start promoting from within.

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

    Pros

    Good 401(k) match, you won't get fired here, talented workers can really stand out, well-defined corporate culture.

    Cons

    Poor technology, little understanding of the market outside of traditional core customers, inflexible work from home policy, no interest in innovation, 1970s-style employee benefits, sub-market pay. There's a tendency to denigrate the competition without studying them for best practices. Facilities project a poor image to clients and associates. Management does not recognize that the workforce has changed- should rethink compensation and benefits to appeal to a younger, more talented crowd (no pension, better vacation, work from home, etc.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The financial services industry is in flux right now due to regulatory and market changes. By being proactive rather than reactive a strong company like BB&T could become a market leader, the "best of the best." Take a hit for a few quarters and figure out where the banking industry will be in 10 years and build the organization for it now. Diversify your customer base away from senior citizens in the retail market and enhance your capital markets capabilities. You're there on middle market. Buy a discount online brokerage.

    Current Employee - Wealth Management Associate II in Wilson, NC
    Current Employee - Wealth Management Associate II in Wilson, NC

    I have been working at BB&T full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
