    I worked at SunTrust

    Pros

    Friendly work environment. You will have a good work life balance if you manage your time effectively.

    Cons

    If the region you are working in has poor upper management then your success and "happiness" will suffer. Fortunately if you do well it is easy to transfer out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not change policy's so frequently; it makes the firm seem indecisive.

    I worked at SunTrust full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Salaries, Cost of Living Increases

    Cons

    Very poor PC/Laptop support - many issues with basic software like MS Office, IE.
    Poor IT Management - focused only on schedule, and not at all on quality.
    High level of outsourcing - many onshore contractors with no incentive to produce long-term quality deliverables.
    Lack of documentation, especially for Cobol systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase business trust with more credible applications that actually work well longer than 6 months.
    Quit spreading work out to so many different vendors for production support - 4 different vendors just to get a laptop fixed is ridiculous.
    Develop business knowledge in-house with employees, rather than considering employees interchangeable with cheaper offshore personnel.

    No opinion of CEO
