    Pros

    The company has a philosophy of not doing business with companies that practice eminent domain.
    The company offers a lot of training.

    Cons

    They began to alienate clientele by requiring high balances and fees in checking accounts during a time when a lot of people were already struggling to make ends meet. FMLA means nothing since you can be terminated for having to leave to care for a child covered under FMLA.
    A lot of cliques. If you're not part of one then you may have issues. Even if your manager feels that you are ready for the next step in your career path, you can bet there is someone around who is trying to prevent that from happening. Yet, there are others being promoted with less experience.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair. Follow the law. And remember to keep your clients first. If you run off your clients and good (award winning) employees why are you in business?

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

    Pros

    Good 401(k) match, you won't get fired here, talented workers can really stand out, well-defined corporate culture.

    Cons

    Poor technology, little understanding of the market outside of traditional core customers, inflexible work from home policy, no interest in innovation, 1970s-style employee benefits, sub-market pay. There's a tendency to denigrate the competition without studying them for best practices. Facilities project a poor image to clients and associates. Management does not recognize that the workforce has changed- should rethink compensation and benefits to appeal to a younger, more talented crowd (no pension, better vacation, work from home, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    The financial services industry is in flux right now due to regulatory and market changes. By being proactive rather than reactive a strong company like BB&T could become a market leader, the "best of the best." Take a hit for a few quarters and figure out where the banking industry will be in 10 years and build the organization for it now. Diversify your customer base away from senior citizens in the retail market and enhance your capital markets capabilities. You're there on middle market. Buy a discount online brokerage.
