I worked at BB&T full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

This is a good place to learn a lot about business, processes, and business politics. I sincerely mean that. After working at BB&T and at other places without any processes, I have learned that there needs to be a balance (some but not too many, make sure you have the right ones).

BB&T offers decent business and leadership training. I enjoyed many of the courses and learned a lot about myself.

Cons

These might have just been related to our area:
- Too many reorganizations. Change the structure and let it be for at least 2 years. You don't know if something is effective after only a year.
- Too many meetings.
- Too many circular meetings which relates to
- No real direction.

For the company as a whole:
- Too much inter-department fighting and jealousy when the departments have a bit of overlap.
- Still too much of a "good-ole boys", conservative environment

    Pros

    Having worked in Banking for over 25 years, BB&T has the best culture and environment ever. The company prides itself on family values whereas everyone genuinely likes working in their jobs and it shows in their contributions to the Bank. Cut throat ugly competitiveness is not accepted.

    Cons

    The only real weakness I see for this highly profitable, large regional NC based bank is lack of technology in the business units. BB&T is addressing this shortcoming by slowly enhancing its IT Department and adding more systems that provide input to LOB decision-makers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course and continue to improve in information technology.
