Pros

A few good things about BB&T are:
- decent benefits
- some flexibility depending on who you report to
- one of the few companies that offer 401k and Pension benefits

Cons

- extremely political
- no room to climb up the corporate ladder
- false implications around employee morale
- expects you to give 200% but will not reward you appropriately
- retention is low
- consistently using the economy as a hurdle, however, the overall company is doing extremely well in the financial industry
- no reward and recognition for most

Advice to Management

- 360 feedback/coaching would be helpful
- do more for the sake of employees
- stop sending false messages to employees (i.e. - saying you're going to increase employee moral and then do nothing for it)

    "Good sales experience, not much for promotions though. More of a job than a career."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits, Bankers Hours, Co Workers, Every day clients, Sales experience and training.

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales goals, Managers treat you like a number. Unless you go to the Leadership Development Program you won't get promoted. Politics in branch. Everybody fighting for a promotion. Hopefully you get a good branch with a nice manager who are far and few between.

    Advice to Management

    Try to really care about those who work under you instead of treating them like a number.


  2. "great company to build your career!"
