    Former Employee - Branch Banker III in Tifton, GA

    I worked at BB&T full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is reasonable. The company really tries to provide that work/family balance for the employees.

    Cons

    Although the company is severely understaffed, it is much of the present staff who diminishes the company. The company is filled with ill equipped millennials who gossip, stay on their cells, lack professionalism, constantly complain and refuse to work along with the many employees awaiting retirement but actually serve no purpose. The hard workers get overworked while everyone else hangs out and collects their check.

    Advice to Management

    Value the employees who work hard for the BB&T. If all of the best employees are leaving this should throw up a red flag. Also do not assume that all AOOs should be in their position. Many are not knowledgeable or professional.

    I worked at BB&T full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, PTO and healthcare were great. Excellent training program for specific role I was in.

    Cons

    Unsustainable expectations and limited opportunity for growth out of my department. Risk of being pigeonholed if you stay too long.

    Advice to Management

    BB&T is a great company and while mathematically correct spreads may please the feds, this department is giving an otherwise amazing company a bad name among young talent. During the time I was there drug abuse was rampant in this department to make numbers. Break up the spread shop and re-integrate your credit analysts into regional offices.
