Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Life force health insurance and good training programs for your job.

Cons

Financial Center Leader, Branch Manager, Market Leader. Depleted branch staff, heavy sales goals, cold call nights, sales. They laid off several jobs over the summer 2013 so check the reviews since then. Its resulted in poor customer service and 60 hour work weeks. If you're in the branches, its all about product pushing and sales goals just like any other big bank. They increased fees on customers rather than updating loan policy to generate income. Basically, I think BB&T is good to work for if your in the back office, but its difficult if your in a client facing position in the branches because you have limited staff and you have no authority to make decisions.

Advice to Management

You have no idea what life in the branches is like. I suggest living off the salary of branch staff and then making the cold calls and sales goals for a quarter like you required us to do.

    reward the hard workers, reward those who have perfect attendance, reward professionalism and lead by example

    Pros

    The company was financially sound.

    Cons

    The financial center managers were not held accountable for their branch's shortcomings.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a true team effort with the FCL bringing in the business instead of expecting the RB's to pick up the slack and run the internal show.
