Pros

BB&T knows how to take care of their employees. This bank pays better than any other and you get an incredible work/life balance. Many banks are notorious for giving tellers pitiful pay and then breathing down their necks for referrals-not here. They provide you with the proper training and compensate you beyond fairly. I've truly adopted another family working here.

Cons

Although this is more-so a con for clients rather than employees, the company is a little "behind the times". Slowly but surely they are rolling out new technology (envelope free ATM's, improvements to the mobile app) which will help the company keep up with the "big banks".

Advice to Management

Keep doing a great job caring about your employees. I have never worked for a company that goes so out of its way to ensure everyone within is well taken care of. This truly is a wonderful place to be.

    Pros

    If you want to be in banking, you want to be in a bank that has a long history of sound judgement, good leadership and stability. That describes BB&T. The Corporate Culture is ethical, moral, client centric and tries hard to be entrepreneurial to the best of its ability with government regulations and oversight. It's the best place to be, if you want to be in banking.

    Cons

    If you want to be in banking, be aware it's volatile, accountable to shareholders, under government scrutiny and regulations and these are hard times for the financial industry in general. The good banks get lumped in with the bad. BB&T will often over-compensate to protect profitability and brand. BB&T is a bit reactionary and will over-correct when profitability or stability or propriety is questioned. The over-correction creates insecurity in the ranks while the overall Corporate Culture remains strong. But I wonder how long.

    Advice to Management

    The centralization of many functions of operations to create uniformity, accountability, control expenses and execute policy and procedure and create transparency, can also create a sluggish behemoth unable to quickly respond to business exigencies. Autonomy was a strength and a weakness in the Community Banking model. People do the job, so too few people with the authority to take action, scope, create strategy, execute; the more layers between the doers and the ok-ers; the slower we are to respond to opportunity. And that's the endgame; seize opportunity.
