    I have been working at SunTrust as an intern

    Pros

    - great working atmosphere
    - friendly co-workers
    - great banking perks for those who choose to bank with SunTrust
    - interviewed separately by three, same day, easy going and basic interview questions

    Cons

    - if you're looking for a more analytical/financial position, internal audit may not be the best internship option

    I have been working at SunTrust full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Culture is great. Lots of opportunity for growth, but be patient (see comment in cons for internal candidates). The company fosters a great environment for volunteerism and displays a great deal of social responsibility.

    Cons

    Slow to adapt to change in some departments. Some leaders are very abrasive and toxic. Some programs are still maturing resulting in constant change, which can be unnerving to some. The hiring process for internal and external candidate is a mess and is extremely lengthy.

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

    Pros

    There were ample vacation days we received 4 weeks off and a lot of remote work.

    Cons

    There is no real upward mobility. Trying to transition within the company was extremely difficult and it felt as if management didn't have your back at times.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your ISOs. People leave because they are unhappy. Processes need to change for the better not to create more paperwork and just to be able to pass audits.

    I have been working at SunTrust full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work from home pilot project but it depends on the department/team and if they are instituting it
    US Banking holidays
    OT is allowed depending on the department
    16 weeks maternity leave
    Employee survey is working where some items have been implemented

    Cons

    Projects are very slow to complete
    Salary perception among peers can be detrimental and not on par per work/experience
    Disconnect between team members and management
    Technology is still lagging behind other banks

    Advice to Management

    Don't ever lose sight of your veterans. They are the backbone of the company and have been there through thick and thin. Listen to the employees, especially the ones that are overwhelmed with work and need help or even better strategies on the workflow.

    Pros

    None that I can honestly think of.

    Pros

    You work in a nice building and the salary is average

    Cons

    Expect senior management to be able to speak over you, yell at you, berate you, be passive aggressive towards you, overwork you, and belittle you. Maybe this doesn't hold true in all departments, but it definitely is in mine. Expect senior management to treat you like **** if you don't have a nice "title".

    Advice to Management

    be nicer to your employeees

    I worked at SunTrust full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, talented peers, many opportunities to demonstrate team approach

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, needless and frequent personnel, organizational and process changes due to RIFs and restructuring and outsourcing. Overburdened and disorganized risk management. Incomplete system linkages causing too many workarounds.

    Advice to Management

    If you set a timetable to reorganize a function, keep it. If you seek to make any other significant changes to processes or systems, get the buy-in from those affected before implementing the changes.
