I worked at BB&T full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

This is a good place to learn a lot about business, processes, and business politics. I sincerely mean that. After working at BB&T and at other places without any processes, I have learned that there needs to be a balance (some but not too many, make sure you have the right ones).

BB&T offers decent business and leadership training. I enjoyed many of the courses and learned a lot about myself.

Cons

These might have just been related to our area:
- Too many reorganizations. Change the structure and let it be for at least 2 years. You don't know if something is effective after only a year.
- Too many meetings.
- Too many circular meetings which relates to
- No real direction.

For the company as a whole:
- Too much inter-department fighting and jealousy when the departments have a bit of overlap.
- Still too much of a "good-ole boys", conservative environment

    Pros

    Lots of upside opportunity if you perform. Vast majority of employees embrace values of the organization. If you want to truly advance, you must be highly productive which typically means you must work hard - no handouts!

    Cons

    Pay should be better for long time employees

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of how the company got where it is. Values matter...people matter. Find ways to help middle management cut through the bureaucracy. There is a lot of time spent posturing by upper middle management for Exec Mgt rather than dealing with the issues at hand.
