Disapproves of CEO

I worked at SunTrust full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Benefits were pretty good; salary was in line with competitors.Worked with some really good people.

Cons

Upper management regards employees as dispensable; branch managers for the most part are people who spend their time self promoting rather than managing or producing revenue.

Advice to Management

Keep turning people over constantly and you will find yourselves ranked in the low tier of banks. You cannot overcome low interest rates by charging fees on everything to the clients. This bank is a totally different bank now, and not in a good sense.
