Pros

The benefits package for health was very cheap per paycheck.
They do train you well for the basics of your job.
Upper management (CEO level) are qualified and handle the current crisis well, so far.

Cons

In Florida the managers very rarely work a 40 hour work week.
Any position under branch leader will be required to do alot of tele-marketing and client calling.
The goals are impossible to meet unless located at the busiest of branches.
They do not want smart and talented employees, rather people who are satisfied and will stay in current position.
The LDP will only accept people who know other high up or who go to Wake Forest(where BB&T donated a ton of money).
The training is designed to say certain lines word for word...which is robotic and out of touch.
Too many cheerleaders for conference calls and not enough real work, usually overstaffed as well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

First, hold those under you accountable. Many tellers and rb's work hard and really do care, but most managers and up do not work very hard and usually push employees to do their jobs for them, and then steal the credit when the suits come in or ask. Do not state you promote from within when I have seen 4 very smart and qualified individuals in Florida quit and find other jobs at double the pay after being denied promotions and then stepped on by their managers for applying because they well not "yes" men.

    headquarters located in a small size city

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job on getting us through the financial crisis. We are doing much better than other banks! It is comforting to know you work for a solid company that is not going to go out of business.
