      Highly Incompetent Investment Bank - Avoid Truist Securities at all Costs

      Jan 24, 2021 - Investment Banking Analyst in Atlanta, GA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - High pay relative to most corporate jobs; however, the pay was not high compared to other investment banking jobs - Atlanta, GA can be a pro if NYC isn't your cup of tea

      Cons

      - I generally like to use better words than "rude" and "selfish" to describe my coworkers, but unfortunately, those are the only two words I can use to describe the culture I experienced at SunTrust and later Truist. The senior bankers I worked with had no regard for the mental health of the analysts, associates, or even VPs. Non-essential work would frequently get dumped on our plates on Saturdays without any notice during the week. I worked every Saturday and Sunday for 6 weeks straight at one point. Holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, and even Labor Day (ironically), could be full-blown workdays. To be clear, this horrid lack of work-life balance exists at more investment banks than just Truist/STRH; however, Truist pretends to have a more laid back and empathetic culture, which could not be further from the truth. The insane amount of work would be more manageable if the senior bankers had more gratitude, but unfortunately, most of them could not care less. Seeing the blatantly rude attitudes of the bankers I worked with served as a wake-up call for me. I never want to treat people like that - Important decisions, like layoffs and promotions, were generally decided only at the top level of management in an often incompetent manner. There were frequent layoffs due to the merger, and often good people were let go for political reasons rather than being judged on the actual quality of their work. There will likely continue to be layoffs going forward to achieve the merger cost synergy target, meaning an already understaffed analyst/associate pool across the bank will continue to get cut
