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

Pros

Having worked in Banking for over 25 years, BB&T has the best culture and environment ever. The company prides itself on family values whereas everyone genuinely likes working in their jobs and it shows in their contributions to the Bank. Cut throat ugly competitiveness is not accepted.

Cons

The only real weakness I see for this highly profitable, large regional NC based bank is lack of technology in the business units. BB&T is addressing this shortcoming by slowly enhancing its IT Department and adding more systems that provide input to LOB decision-makers.

Advice to Management

Stay the course and continue to improve in information technology.

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

    Pros

    -Access to Bank Clients
    -Lead lists
    -Ability to leverage relationships within the branch to accelerate investment relationship

    Cons

    -Internal competition with Private Advisor, Wealth Group, Portfolio Manager and Scott & Stringfellow
    -Branch employees have zero accountability to drive investment revenue
    -Branch employees have no understanding or training in how to approach investment relationship opportunities
    -Senior management doesn't care about the plight of the investment counselor
    -Lack of wrap accounts, products and brokerage abilities
    -High cost of products prices us out of many sophisticated clients
    -Lack of financial planning software to present plans to clients
    -Overall, a very Stone Age experience to investments and too much conflict internally leaves the investment counselor feeling like they're on an island that no one cares to visit.

    Advice to Management

    Spin off Scott & Stringfellow and allow the Investment Counselor the tools and training they need to be the sole contact for any and all investment opportunity. The current structure won't build confidence within the branch environment, it will confuse clients and prospects, and most of all, deflate and undermine the long term efforts of the Investment Counselor. This has been the most incompetent approach to investments I've ever been party to and I can't leave soon enough.
