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

    Pros

    Purpose driven
    Great pay
    Great 401k match
    Good benefits
    Paid hourly, so you are paid overtime
    Holidays off (some)
    The holidays you do work (if you are In-Store) you get paid 2 1/2 pay

    Cons

    In-Store is terrible, but there is room to move to traditional if you would like to in the future.
    Must wait 12 months to apply for any other position

    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.
