A very political company with room to grow based on who you know, not what you know.

Pros

A few good things about BB&T are:
- decent benefits
- some flexibility depending on who you report to
- one of the few companies that offer 401k and Pension benefits

Cons

- extremely political
- no room to climb up the corporate ladder
- false implications around employee morale
- expects you to give 200% but will not reward you appropriately
- retention is low
- consistently using the economy as a hurdle, however, the overall company is doing extremely well in the financial industry
- no reward and recognition for most

Advice to Management

- 360 feedback/coaching would be helpful
- do more for the sake of employees
- stop sending false messages to employees (i.e. - saying you're going to increase employee moral and then do nothing for it)

    Pros

    Initial training is very good.
    The base pay is O.K. for the position.
    Cluster/Area management is accessible
    There are opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Workload is heavy in reference to the amount of time given to complete assignments.

    Discouraged from working overtime to complete impossible workload.

    Sales goals are unreasonable because they are not only based on new accounts and referrals, but also take into consideration the balances clients maintain.

    Promotions seem to be on a who-you-know basis.

    Management will regularly promote/demote employees depending on the numbers they want to meet. Employees are pieces on a chessboard.

    Operations are constantly changing and they typically hinder the sales process.

    Ongoing training is very self-directed. But there is little to no time to complete it.


  2. great company to build your career!
