    I have been working at BB&T full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits 100% 401k Match, Medical, pension, the employees and management are supportive and take interest in their employees. Plenty of paid holidays and not to many weeks over 40 hours.

    Cons

    Cost cutting measures have put a serious strain on staff. Sales goal expectations are unrealistic. Management often only looks at production numbers and doesn't consider the operational/service/management aspect that is integrated into most platform positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to your values, spend more time taking care of your current clients.

    Pros

    Very employee oriented. Great benefits

    Cons

    Changing environment in leadership. It appears that compliance and account run the bank, but I am sure this is part of the banking environment we are in.

    I have been working at BB&T full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I enjoy the holidays and benefits that come with the job. The hours are always a plus for me since I came from working in retail. The people I work with are supportive and helpful.

    Cons

    The staffing is an issue from time to time. They don't always follow through with certain things that they say they will assist you with. The changes occurring in the company are so frequent that you have to constantly adjust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try minimizing all the changes that are implemented at one time and show more appreciation for your employees on a consistent basis.
