No opinion of CEO

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 Management

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

    Disapproves of CEO

    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 Management

    Show respect for people making possible your enormous paychecks.


  2. Great place to grow, if you can be patient

    Pros

    If you want to be part of a nimble, entrepreneurial organization, run from SunTrust. However, if you're looking to build a career with a respected bank and are willing to put in your dues, they have a lot to offer.

    Cons

    Following company policy is at times more valued than customer service or common business sense.

    Advice to Management

    Your reputation with numerous repeat borrowers is incredibly valuable. So you are able to get deals done without always offering the best terms. But don't get greedy, or the goodwill can quickly be lost.
