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

    Pros

    Internal re focus to better align people skills to target market. I like the direction this position is going.

    Cons

    The internal systems seem to be a mis-mash of programs. Nothing seems to pull data together with ease. This isn't much different than other banks I've worked for but it would be nice for a financial institution to keep up with our client base with respect to systems.

    Pros

    Great company, great teammates, great atmosphere. Incentive package is great too

    Cons

    Suntrust doesn't promote from within. Always hiring from the outside and changing the focus each time.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those who work hard and are still with you throughout the tough times

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

    Pros

    Great teller coordinators, tellers and customer service reps if you're placed in a good branch. You would have to work 1 Saturday a month in a different branch if yours was not open on Saturdays. That wasn't so bad! It was only for 3 hours and it gave me the opportunity to meet more nice, outgoing and interesting people like myself!

    Cons

    Went through 2-3 Branch Managers in the 2+ years I was there. Each one was worse than the last.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites. Everyone deserves a fair shot at advancing within the company.
