I have been working at BB&T full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Challenging position with plenty of training opportunities. Above average compensation and excellent benefits including 6% 401K match and Defined Benefit Pension Plan. For the most part the people I work with are great.

Cons

Like most companies these days they are taking advantage of the economy and not giving raises like they should. Sometimes technical decisions are made by middle managers that don't have a clue. They solicit advice and direction from the Sr. Engineers but often ignore it.

Advice to Management

You had better get with it on the yearly raises or you will start losing some very talented employees. There are some large companies moving into the area and they are actively recruiting top notch IT talent with attractive offers.

    I have been working at BB&T full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging and interesting position, like the fact the company focus on "perfect client experience"
    Good group of co-workers who try to do the best given the constraints of time and resources; found this across departments
    Benefits are competitive, salary not as much.
    Stable company.

    Cons

    Short sighted management - no long term, cohesive strategy.
    Political - same people get opportunities and promotions - management doesn't know or utilize their staff to the best of their capabilities.
    Longer you stay, further behind - new employees hired at higher levels and pay.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your offices, talk with ALL of your employees at all levels, not just direct reports.
    Be more forthcoming and up-front - you complain about rumor mill, but that's what happens when you're so secretive.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Had the best clients while there.

    Cons

    No matter if you reach your goals you are told to do better without a thank you. Banking seems to be very deceptive. Its all about them making money no matter how they get it. They want you to put clients in products they don't really need so they have their claws in them and it makes it harder for client to switch banks.

    Advice to Management

    Be more ethical!!
