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

Pros

BBTIS is a subsidiary company of BB&T bank and has a great benefits package because of it.

Cons

- HIGHLY disorganized
- There does not appear to be any vision for the future, and are painfully stuck in the past
- Lacks respect as a business unit within BB&T
- Is forced to compete with BB&T's other investment subsidiary, Scott & Stringfellow without
  having the respect resources vision, management or culture to truly be able to compete with
  Scott & Stringfellow.
- The corporate culture is one of fear, intimidation and distrust

Advice to Management

- My advise to BB&T bank... bring in an entirely new management team for BBTIS and give
  them the resources the need to be successful.
- My advise to BBTIS management. Congratulations for removing the Chief Compliance
  Officer. You waited too long to do it. That individual cost the company dearly
- BBITS management, stop allowing these unqualified, mid-level hack bank managers dictate
  how your business should be run.
- Either do it or don't do it. Either decide to become an investment company and charge
  forward accepting nothing less than complete and total success as a serious competitor in
  the market or just get out.
- BBTIS management, you are not NEARLY as good as you believe you are. You have a
  tremendous amount to learn. Humble yourselves, start learning.
- BBTIS management, remember management is just a title. If you want to succeed, learn
  how to become LEADERS!

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

    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.

    Pros

    Train all employees with sound principles of integrity, honesty, teamwork, goal setting, and striving for helping employees promote themselves.

    Cons

    Tellers are stressed because they are expected to do more with less help.

    Advice to Management

    Tellers are the front line for customers, and you realize this by providing training for complete customer service... but you are cutting back on the staff and expect tellers to do more work. The tellers are stretched thin, and instead of cutting back, you should hire more so that tellers can have the time to do all that is required and provide each client with more of their time and attention.
