I have been working at BB&T full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
The bank's training and development infrastructure is exceptional, I am consistently impressed by how much more competent BB&T front-line employees are than those that staff competing institutions. The bank also pays reasonably well, and the sales incentives are attainable at the branch level.
The healthcare and retirement benefits are significantly better than those offered by competing institutions.
This bank is certainly making money and has an extremely loyal following among small businesses due to low employee turnover. Since there is low turn-over, there is a sense of teamwork/camaraderie that is hard to create in banking.Cons
While the sales incentives are pretty attainable, the sales pressure is significant, though you will get that in any banking role.
My biggest pet peeve is the growing feeling that "something is up" with our branch model, and that information is being withheld from branch staff about upcoming changes. It is difficult to be motivated when your personal trajectory is unclear.
We have had 0 communication from regional management regarding the changes to the branch and platform roles. Radio silence.Advice to ManagementAdvice
I would like more intensive advancement training opportunities offered within the regions (such as securities licenses, etc.). This would enable more branch employees to progress in their careers and prevent the "hard disconnects" with their clients when their favorite points of contact are forced to move to another state to advance in the bank.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
