I worked at SunTrust full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great experience for several years in Branch Banking and Senior Leadership roles.

Cons

Moved by choice to Corporate and was a huge mistake. Overly political, cut throat environment. Senior Leaders only care about themselves and how they appear to Executives. Clueless about what the branches are really doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to branch teams and leaders. Don't relay on corporate leaders to tell you what is happening in the field.

    I worked at SunTrust full-time

    Pros

    SunTrust has good vacation benefits and a reasonable health plan. Their flexible work hours and the ability to work from home three day per week are also positive from a work/life balance perspective.

    Cons

    Senior management lacks the ability to determine realistic goals and wastes resources, both time and money. The company's business vision isn't well defined which leads to confusing signals from management that results in projects being improperly staffed as priorities constantly shift. Their practice of estimating project effort and cost with insufficient information, "T-shirt sizes" leads to bad decisions based on bad information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define a realistic set of business objective based on verifiable information not guess work. Empower your employees and listen to their input. There is a lot of talent in the company that is extremely frustrated from having their time wasted by bad management decisions and
    being pulled in conflicting directions. Forget " the SunTrust Way", you need a new management paradigm.
