    Pros

    8 to 5; health benefits; 401k and pension

    Cons

    BB&T is not what it was when I was hired on. All about profits for shareholders, employees are just numbers, staff shortage , no potential for advancement, can't express opinions, extreme budget cuts, layoffs, drastically increased workloads, no employee recognition, no training, horrible hypocrisy relating to mission.

    Advice to Management

    Give it time top executive, karma is not nice.

    I worked at BB&T full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great initiative ideas or concepts to roll out for clients. Benefits were great as well as 401k and vacation time.

    Cons

    Understaffed
    The longer you work for them, it seemed the less they cared about you.
    Not the same BB&T it was when Kelly King was CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to take care of the employees who have proved themselves loyal, hardworking, and there for the clients. Value the face of the bank (tellers, branch bankers) more than you currently do. Don't forget everything you ask them to do with the staff you allow them to have, remember them when it comes time for reviews or bonuses.
