I worked at SunTrust full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Full line of benefits, many tenured teammates, many good coworkers to work with, relationship building with clients

Cons

Out of touch executive and senior management spending too much time micromanaging....too many chiefs....on the retail side you might have a branch manager coaching a teller while being coached by a Area Manager who at the same time is being coached by the Region Executive who at the same time is being coached by the Geographic Exec and if your really lucky they will also have an HR consultant with them all. CRAZY

You have to know somebody or kiss up to survive.

Advice to Management

How about all the above mentioned stay out of the branches and let us do our job.....

Also...CEO how about you take some of that $9,2 salary and reinvest in some of the good people vs continuing to lay them off.

TOOOOOO many senior management levels taking down big salaries vs staffing to support clients.

    I worked at SunTrust full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    SunTrust was a great place to work and then the new CEO came in.

    Cons

    Cutting every expense like travel, training, bonuses, paper, supplies, coffee, benefits, ... (for non executives), selling a lot of assets to cover bad debt, off shoring nearly all of IT, outsourcing almost everything else, and to bring in a new CIO from India who is pushing with vigor the off shoring agenda (to guess where.. India). It is obvious to nearly everyone that the direction SunTrust is headed is to be sold. Therefore, expect continuous cuts, layoffs, outsourcing and off shoring. This is however a sound business decision. This will cause the stock prices to raise significantly before the company is Sold so that the Board of Directors, "C" suite officers, and other major investors get a significant parting bonus. It is not so good for those thousands of folks here in the US who put in 40+ per week to make everything work.....

    Advice to Management

    Would be like trying to change the course of the Mississippi River by talking to it. Therefore I decline.
