    I worked at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The senior mgmt of the parent SunTrust Bank genuinely cares about employee wellbeing, although that does not necessarily translate down to the mid-levels or to STRH mgmt. Overall, it's a decent culture to work in and people are generally nice to work with. Working hours are good relative to other investment banks/broker dealers.

    Cons

    The firm is very conservative, even for a bank and slow to upgrade technology. Compensation is below average on the CIB side of the bank and resources are constrained to the point of hindering work performance. Communication can, at times be poor.
