I worked at BB&T full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The people you work with day to day and the clients.

Cons

Unless hired into management promotion opportunities are bleak. It seems positions are mostley filled from outside applicants.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look for talent from within more. There are many gems hidden within the branches.

    Very Clicky. If you don't agree 100% with your manager you can forget moving up.

    I worked at BB&T full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent salary, mostly nice coworkers and good benefits.

    Cons

    Very little room for growth. They seem to prefer to hire externally than from within. Next to impossible quotas to meet so it makes for a very stressful environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your non-officers opinions of their direct management team. If you don't work within a few miles of the corporate eye, management treats non-officers with no respect, and let you know how very disposible you are to the company. No one protects the non-officers because they are not producers.

    I have been working at BB&T full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    High focus on client satisfaction, and adherance to responsible business practices as outlined in Vision, Mission and Values of the company.

    Cons

    As the banks is growing, more aspects which were handled locally are being centralized, such as lending authority. This however is unavoidable once any bank grows past a certain size.
