Pros

This company has good pay, good benefits and great structure for a long career in banking.

Cons

Always hiring cause some of the older employees morale is down. Specific to goals and competition.

Advice to Management

Work on morale, employees are doing dishonest things to their clients in order to chase the goals blanket set for them. This can lead to the type of problems that the other banks have gotten into.

    Pros

    Work from home 3 days per week. Slightly better than average salary. Great coworkers. 6% 401k match - paid semi-monthly (vesting was immediate, now it is 2 years - not too bad). 4 weeks vacation for professional grades. $5,000 annual tuition reimbursement (accredited universities only).

    Cons

    Every three years SunTrust goes through a "transformation." These transformations lead to uncertainty about working conditions and job prospects. Rarely does it turn in to an opportunity regardless of how aggressive you are. During these transformations top talent jump ship for stable, more interesting / challenging opportunities. Reductions In Force (RIF) occur 3 to 4 times per year.

    Advice to Management

    Give the transformations a rest - they are disruptive and take you back 3 steps for every one step forward. Focus on culture and your employees. A purpose driven company values individuals and builds relationships with people (and starts internally). RIFs promote uncertainty and fear. Stop cutting benefits. Eliminating the pension and HMO insurance should be enough to save you plenty of money.
