Pros

Good investment bank with decent perks located in a great city. Not the highest profile, but there are opportunities to move to bigger spots if your good enough. It's good that I've gotten a chance to work in so many different areas of the firm and have a broad knowledge of the Investment Banking industry. Great office building in a great location downtown.

Cons

Not as well known. Senior Management isn't very good at communications with Associates. Obviously not in New York or Chicago, so there is a much lower profile than in a financial capital. Pay isn't up to the same standards as some other Investment Banks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better help with advancing their employees careers. More feedback and a better understanding of the strategic vision of the firm.

    Pros

    Strong Bank weathering a financial storm well. SunTrust's historically conservative lending platform have really helped weather this crisis we currently have, even though they have a large presence in some of the hardest hit markets. Management does at least put on a facade of concern when dealing with it's employees.

    Cons

    typical banking environment - if you don't like working for SunTrust maybe you shouldn't be in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Problem with the industry is that it is in a constant struggle to remain competitive. Why do people expect free checking? Banking is a service! Do you go to the barbershop and expect a free haircut? -NO So why is every fee up for debate with every single client? Because every client can pick up and go to another institution... If they aren't profitable let 'em go! This is yet another area that needs reform in the industry.

    Pros

    A paycheck if nothing else is available. They are a good possibility to be bought out. Lots of work has been outsourced.

    Cons

    Lack of respect and recognition of the employees. Very poor raises, lame excuses as to why. You pay to park at their building. You must commit yourself to the job (I.T. dept.). You will work many/most weekends and be called frequently at night, even if you're not on call.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show respect for people making possible your enormous paychecks.
