    I worked at BB&T full-time

    Pros

    BB&T is a company that is extremely family oriented. All the managers that I have spoken with and worked for go above and beyond to work with their employee's when I come to situation outside of work that involve family. BB&T also requires there workers to take a 5 day vacation at some point throughout the year. This is meant to give employees an extended vacation completely disconnected form work to be able to rest and relax.

    Cons

    BB&T is a company that in the resent past has acquired many regional banks. In the process of transitioning the new assets and personnel there have been times workers felt overwhelmed.

    Advice to Management

    There is not really much one could advice the management on at BB&T. The company is strong with great upper management that whole heartedly believe in the companies values. The only think I would say is that upper management should really push manager to put their best young employee's an the mentorship program. I have seen first hand a few talented employees leave because they did not have the opportunity to have a mentor to help them in the early stages of there career.

    I have been working at BB&T part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I work part time for BB&T. Since I'm p/t(20t hours), I do get benefits. When was the last time a p/t person got benefits? Not many organizations offer that. I love the flexibility of the scheduling so I can make doctor's appointments, etc. We have a good group of people in our office, so enjoyable to come to work.

    Cons

    I can't complain about anything.

    Pros

    Great Benefits and flexible hours.
    Team environment. Company seems to care about it's employees as well as the community. Terrific place to work.

    Cons

    Employees are paid once a month. Pay scales and pay cycles need to be updated. Forces employees to manage money so that part is not a complete negative.
