    Pros

    Strong culture of a values driven organization. Strong CEO leadership, with open lines of communication on a regular basis with employees.

    Cons

    Sales goals removed from all branch employees except the Market Leader/Branch Manager. Cannot hold your team accountable for results, only behaviors, yet if results aren't there for the branch it must be your fault for not have strong behavioral leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your sales goals structure for branch employees. Stop rash decision making to satisfy regulators. Rank performance of your teams and reward accordingly.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, What the company stands for is great.

    Cons

    Did away with individual goals and incentive in my region that resulted in no staffing and poor management. Very negative and treated employees poorly. They offer training with no way to train.

    Advice to Management

    Being negative does not build up people who are struggling. If you truly want people to succeed then you need to walk into a branch and listen to what is going on and see the issues.

    Pros

    A lot of potential growth in Texas. If you like banking then a great company with good benefits. Has training and employee recognition on a regular basis.

    Cons

    I come from restaurant and was told my experience would translate well to banking. That was not entirely true but the environment is the opposite of restaurant.

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

    Pros

    Wonderful retirement plan. Good 401k and defined benefit pension plan.

    Senior Management makes an effort to connect with employees through video series, surveys, Q&A

    Compensation is fair

    Very supportive of community involvement either individually or corporate sponsored.

    Company is in favor of work-life balance (generally).

    Telecommute opportunities are available for certain roles

    Cons

    Large company problems (heavily silo'd, lots of red tape when trying to get things done)

    Lagging behind in the implementation of internal technology

    Compensation increases are often mediocre so you'll need to be promoted or move around a bit to get sizable pay raises. It's difficult for managers to truly reward high performers.

    Advice to Management

    You've done a great job leading us through a very difficult banking environment for the past 8-10 years. Please continue to adopt new technologies for internal uses so that we can live out the core values of the bank.
