    Like working here

    Commercial Banker (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsInternal re focus to better align people skills to target market. I like the direction this position is going.

    ConsThe internal systems seem to be a mis-mash of programs. Nothing seems to pull data together with ease. This isn't much different than other banks I've worked for but it would be nice for a financial institution to keep up with our client base with respect to systems.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I'm in love!

    FInancial Services Representative III (Current Employee) Titusville, FL

    ProsSunTrust is very "Client Needs" based culture. I am new to the company and I have seen at lease 2 people getting promoted with in my first 2 months of being with SunTrust. At BOA where I worked for 7 years, not many people had advancement opportunities, so this is great to see. The bank is very culture oriented with it's teammates because there are all walks of life with different experiences and many teammates with years and years of tenure. There are tons of down to earth professionals working at this company. They will reward hard work and they do pay financial pay outs for meeting goals. I love the people I work with at my branch and at the training facility.

    ConsThe instore locations (like in Walmart and other stores) do not have the own restrooms so you have to share the public restrooms everyday. The instore branches are very small but you get accustomed quickly. There is a lot of driving for training BUT they pay for your travel AND time, because they want you to be trained well and prepared.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great culture, it promotes teammates to be themselves which in the end drives results and helps each teammate to be successful by being down to earth with the clients and helping them with their financial well being. Without product pushing or selling them something they will not use and don't need. ...I just love it and I am honored to be a SunTrust teammate.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
