I worked at BB&T as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Flexibility of work schedule/life balance.

Cons

No communication between departments that need to work together. Contractors are treated differently and information needed to do your job is not given freely. I was totally bored to death, but the pay was good. Even though there are women executives the 'good old boys' club still runs the show. This contract stunted my growth as far as my career was concerned.

Advice to Management

You are paying alot of money for contractors that sit around and do nothing because the full-time employees do not disseminate enough information and are not open to new ideas. Departments need to work TOGETHER!

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

    Pros

    Sr Management does things to keep employees happy, such as giving you your birthday off. Benefits are very good, especially for singles.

    Cons

    The pay is so-so for the industry. Biggest drawback is opportunities for growth, you may be told one thing at one point, but then something completely different. Depends on the department, but from my experience and others I know, management that actually cares about personal employee growth versus how their review looks is harder and harder to find

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at employees who work hard (at all levels) and give them opportunities to keep learning and growing, this will keep alot of the good employees happy, as well as make them want even more to be a part of this company. Overall, BB&T is a solid company to work for in an economy that is less than desirable.

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

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Some managers seemed to care.

    Cons

    Political environment. If you do not suck-up, good luck getting promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Let the people do their jobs and do not micro-manage
