    I worked at SunTrust full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company laser-focused on improving expense to earnings ratio, They are changing delivery of services to internal and external clients (outsourcing or retracting services).

    Cons

    Company is outsourcing a large number of their jobs. Employees are losing their jobs to vendors (some overseas). Management moving from 'team' and 'visionary' to 'commanding and direct. Outsourcing is a good tactic in some jobs, but not all. Have lost some good business gains and talented people and feel the organization has hurt itself by cutting too deeply.

    I worked at SunTrust full-time for 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.
