    Pros

    Benefits, decent culture where most people were doing what they should. Spirit weeks and other perks. Pretty good pay to start, especially for a call center.

    Cons

    Lots of lazy managers, and while the position says it's customer service, don't be fooled. It started out there were no sales goals or incentives, then it changed to there is commission but sales aren't required, then it became mandatory sales goals, and eventually you can't even apply to another department that doesn't have sales goals (like process quality) unless you are meeting your sales goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your trainers are dummies and most of your managers are lazy and useless.

    I worked at SunTrust part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay was decent and depending on the location, the flow was steady.

    Cons

    The company is constantly changing their policies. Also, favoritism is prevalent in branches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop showing favoritism towards certain employees. All should be treated with respect.

    I worked at SunTrust full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    good pay, good benfits and job stability

    Cons

    Poor management, shift bids, un caring staff, poor work hours and very mean staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You’re going to have employees that are student so you should work with them on their class hour and help them out. This will help them out and want them to stay with the company after working. Also care a little about the employees and a lot of this has to do with public company so I know this is out of your control but other company have done it. Also when speaking to a employee don’t put them to the side office alone. A manger did this to me and maid up a story that got me fired I could not fight it. it was her word agents mine. I heard from friends that she was fired for jus that act.

    I have been working at SunTrust full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits.. A company that still matches 401K...majority of team great to work with.

    Cons

    Department has become very micromanaged which has caused a very hostile work environment. TL's pick and choose who they want to enforce policies and procedures onto. Way to much redundancy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating ALL your employees with the respect they deserve. Maybe the rotating door of new faces would slow down and we could actually start servicing our customers again. Something our customers deserve, but are not receiving.

    I worked at SunTrust full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, great work/life balance and mostly great people.

    Cons

    Leadership is too micromanaging and always looking to find ways get more and more productivity and measurements of productivity from their people instead of looking at the important contributions that are made by dedicated teammates and letting them thrive. Watch your back at all times.....the people seemingly closest to you are the ones that will stab you in the back to get ahead. The corporate bullish*t and games are too much in this workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax a little!! Performance management is great, but let your teammates work without constant threats and without demanding so much! You take, take, take and make morale terrible, for a place of employment that used to be superior in morale and teamwork. You also boast about your future and putting the client first, but who are you kidding??? It's all about making money and beating the competition and cutting jobs and restructuring. The clients are really the ones suffering because you do not treat your teammates with respect and are always reducing incentive payouts and doubling the work you demand and micro-manage performance and push sales goals to a point of ridiculousness.
