    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.

    I have been working at BB&T full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is solid from what I can tell
    Some of the benefits are good
    Depending on your manager, work schedule is flexible on the IT side of the house

    Cons

    Specific to the IT side of the house:
    - Advancement is difficult as decisions on promotions are extremely subjective
    - Strategically, it can be tough to determine how your work in IT impacts overall Business
    - Medical benefits are very expensive for the family plans
    - Don't usually promote from within

    Advice to Management

    - Identify key performance idicators for the LoB, and work backwards from there to help employee understand how what they are doing is adding value. It could also help to identify unnecessary work.
