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
