I worked at BB&T full-time (More than a year)

Pros

great employee cc rate, some great clients, good benefits (minus vacation)

Cons

regimented approach to sales, little room for advancement, low pay, little vacation (sabbatical required)

Advice to Management

Allow the bank to be more flexible in terms of sales. Forcing employees to use specific phrasing makes the calls sound insincere.

The bank would be a great place to work later in your career (better pay and vacation) if there are positions at the corporate office

    I have been working at BB&T full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    BB&T still matches 6% on the 401k and employees are still eligible for a pension. As long as you are close to hitting your goals your superiors will leave you alone. They have decent training for lenders on how credit works. Still one of the last big banks to give lenders loan authority.

    Cons

    Way behind the curve in technology which is very frustrating. Communication between leadership and the branches is nonexistent. The leadership has closed ears and do not listen to anyone that questions the why or how things are done. Everyone is made to give the same canned speech to clients and prospects...its embarrassing and clients will call you out on it. BB&T is so slow on communication and technology that you won't be able to see how you are doing in your yearly goals until June or July...that's pathetic. And your goals will change without warning.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending that you know everything... its ok to change from running the bank like its still 1995. Also,the incentive is horrible.

    Pros

    Good benefits package and a relaxed management team. Not required or forced to work overtime. Overall there is good training for the bank.

    Cons

    One of the lowest paying banks in the industry. Majority of the lenders do not know their clients and wait for someone else to figure it out for them.

    Advice to Management

    give your employees more time off.
