I worked at SunTrust part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Offered on the job training and CBL courses.

*Last year of employment could not select 2007 from drop down.

Cons

No true career path to move from help desk / call center to more technical fields. Employee Reviews had category names like 'Ethics' and 'Morals', but the ratings given were for how fast you were able to log into your phone or tardiness; which had no real correlation to the Topic Heading.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reviews should be honest and succinct. Offering encouragement and opportunities for advancement would have been a motivational factor and I may have stayed with the company.

    If you are looking for disorganization, poor planning and a lot of office politics, seek employment with SunTrust.

    I worked at SunTrust as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you get a manager who is ready to embrace SunTrust's new telecommuting options, the ATL traffic won't be another layer of stress to add to an already stressful working environment.

    Cons

    This is an atmosphere of poor planning, a LOT of contract employees who come and go as if this company was defined with a revolving door policy. Although critical knowledge is constantly walking out the door, projects are expected to continue to move forward and on an extremely tight time schedule without regard for ramp-up time of new employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as people; if you're happy with a contracted employee, hire him/her and keep a good worker on the team. When you are made aware of issues on a project, address them and work with the team to determine how to best resolve the issue. Pushing them under the rug only delays the inevitable.

    Former Employee - Branch Manager in Orlando, FL

    I worked at SunTrust full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    many locations close to home ,lots of good people at the branch level, the pay is fair, good benefits 401k , health plans ect

    Cons

    upper management out of touch, sell, sell, sell, goals set high as to make you fail in some areas, short staffed, no personal relationships with clients, company making cutbacks,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop thinking about the bottom line all the time, putting value points on staff, constant threats of you being replaced, gallop poll scores from people that are irate customers and wont give you a 10 score (get real) too many threats from upper management, put them in your shoes and lets see how they do in a recessed economy in some areas, this bank did not start out this way.........corporate greed took over and now money and numbers is bottom line, the old vision about treating people fair is long gone with the founder of this company

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
