    I have been working at BB&T full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Salary, great benefits, little to no drama,fair treatment,over 30,000 employees. BB&T is a great company to work for and really care about their employees, customers and community.

    Cons

    Not that diversified,not the most exciting industry. BB&T needs to diversify the location of their support jobs. If I want to relocate and stay in my support role I have to do it in Winston Salem.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up the culture and provide perks like free drinks.

    I have been working at BB&T full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work/ life ratio. Decent benefits

    Cons

    Dependent on your manager no room for growth within company. Which is strange cause that's one of the core values of the company

    Advice to Management

    Don't always go directly by what the manager says about employees. They may just want to keep a good worker for themselves instead of seeing them prosper.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are nice. The biggest perk being job security. In fact, most people have been there for 20+ years. Salaries are less than competitive but low inflation in immediate area makes it manageable.

    Cons

    The incentive was just taken away, I imagine the pension will be gone in a few years as well. Technologically incompetent, way behind their competitors. Company buys growth as opposed to fomenting it organically. Shareholders are number one priority.

    Advice to Management

    Technology and not remaining competitive with salaries will be this institutions downfall. I predict they will not adapt in time, be broken and up and sold to the highest bidder.
