I have been working at BB&T full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

BB&T now has all the advantages of a large commercial bank while still trying to maintain a community bank reputation.

Cons

BB&T now has many of the disadvantages of a large commerical bank and is quickly losing that personal feel that has always been it's main calling card and primary advantage in the market place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have teams of associates that are perfectly willing to work their hearts and bodies to the bone "to produce more with less" assistance because the recent economy has made things more difficult for all businesses. They are more than willing to sacrifice whatever it takes to help BB&T weather any storm and shine as the "best of the best" They have trouble buying into this logic for downsizing departments and eliminating positions when Senior Management is awarded massive extra bonuses for saving the bank so much money. Those bonuses could have been better used to keep the existing workforce fully engaged. Senior Management needs to be more sensitive to the associates' feelings when they are losing regional employees to increase productivity and cut costs but are then told of Senior Management's massive extra rewards for "saving" the bank money and increasing the dividends for stock holders and are then told of vacation homes and lavish lifestyles those bonuses finance. It makes it difficult to justify the eliminations and cost cutting when there is that much extra $$$$ to award. Sadly, it is becoming difficult to equate the BB&T Core Values with the organization as it is now evolving. There is a great senior team in place. They need to pay attention to the mixed message they are sending to the associates outside of Corporate Headquaters.

    They drag their feet making hiring or promotion decisions.
    They also don't seem very excited to move employees up unless you push.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Educate all employees on all products so that all associates are able to talk about and cross sell products.
