I have been working at SunTrust full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good market share in the Atlanta market and good brand recognition help teammates attract new clients.

Cons

For the last 4 years the company has gone from a sales culture to a customer service culture, to a customer and sales culture, to a only sales culture. They have change twice the sales format and are looking to change it again. There are no real opportunities to grow and he best opportunities are given to external candidates. The employee engagement level is very low.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They might be getting short term results but in the long term, they are killing the company.

    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.
