I have been working at SunTrust full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great environment, always busy, great management, and flexible for those who are in the military. They will work with you, especially if you are organized and have your drill schedule outlined for the year.

Cons

Recently they have increased goals for incentives, which will make it quite difficult to reach this year's standards. This could lead to lower performance and morale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The new point system will definitely need to be reevaluated after this quarter. I doubt many branches will reach the goals established.

    I have been working at SunTrust full-time for more than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at SunTrust full-time for less than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
