    Product Development Manager

    Product Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat Company to work for, understand the importance of work life balance. The technical and development teams are pretty solid. Teammates are willing to share their knowledge and help bring teammates up to speed. Allow work from home depending on your Manager, but most that I have worked for were more than flexible with my schedule.

    ConsJust like most companies once you are internal, pay increases are consistent with industry standards. Therefore, you are force to think about opportunities outside of the Company to seek higher pay increases.

    Steady work

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Richmond, VA

    ProsVery flexible work environment with telecommuting an option. Good compensation package for this area.

    ConsChange is too slow to occur. Outsourcing has become the answer and in doing so, quality has diminished.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSolicit opinions from internal staff with external experience.

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

    PB3 SunTrust

    PB3 (Current Employee) Rome, GA

    ProsCompany provides Web-based Training aides, Role-play and Classroom instruction, and On the Job Training are all provided within 30-days of hire. Good benefits package.

    ConsSales quotas that are difficult to meet, must reach 95% of quota to attain a 50% incentive check anything less than a 95% attainment results in zero incentive/bonus payout.

    Great people, but confusing

    Associate (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsWonderful people to work with. Very smart, nice, kind to each other. Extremely flexible work from home options, good salary and benefits, treat interns very very well. The innovation services program is making drastic leaps forward in terms of changing the company for the better.

    ConsPeople are both micromanaged and not managed at all to the point of inefficiency and costly. Many people feel that they are extremely unproductive because getting things done requires permissions, and permissions take days or weeks to get; therefore stalling that work. People are also scared of their jobs being outsourced, especially in the technology sectors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe flag says SunTrust should be client first at all times. Remember that the teammates cannot put the client first in their heads and hearts if they are not being taken care of by their employer.

    Room for growth, but difficult environment

    Corporate Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsA broad range do opportunities exist, allowing you to grow and gain exposure to multiple areas of the business

    ConsPolitical environment and challenges delivering or committing to a long term plan. Lots of knee jerk reactions by management that create a tense experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEstablish a plan, and stick with it. Clarify roles across leadership and figure out how to deliver.

    Not a bad place but managers can be very difficult to work with.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTuition reimbursement, discount banking, decent health care, onsite doctor, productive mobility, and great work life balance.

    ConsOut of touch managers. They don't know what all of their employees do. Some are close minded and closed ears and just out right dont listen. You have to pay for parking up to $145 a month. Years behind on technology. Stipping people of the tools needed to do your everyday job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to follow the big banks act like one. Let all in on the new tools and technology.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
