Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Richmond, VA

I worked at SunTrust full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

There are many fantastic and smart people working there. The work is hard, but I stayed all those years because of the people I worked with.

Cons

Every year since 2006, there have been layoffs in our department and this year they are big again all across the bank. These waves began in the summer and are planned to continue through the rest of the year at a minimum. Banks are shrinking, so if you are looking for security, you won't find it here. After you put in months of 60 hour weeks, you could still be laid off.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good luck with the changes you will need to do with Dodd-Frank. I'm afraid you've lost so much banking knowledge by walking us out the door that you'll have a hard time with the massive development you'll need to do for that.

    Pros

    Good people that work hard.

    Cons

    Horrible nat city management team in ETI. Clueless on how things really operate and workflow but about to find out through a terribly idiotic reorganization attempt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify the madness that ETI has become from a management perspective.

    Pros

    benefits, people, opportunities for training

    Cons

    Infighting upper management, lack of trust

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    establish a truly clear direction without the need to figure out whether the message is politically motivated or good sense. Get tier 2's to buy in TOGETHER to a common set of goals with clearly defined responsibilities between them to stop the constant duplication of effort due to conflicting opinions about how to do something or whether it's being done correctly.
