    Pros

    Value structure, CEO is amazing,

    Cons

    Middle management does not always carry out company values. Extremely sales focused to a fault that we are losing sight of company value structure and client experience

    Advice to Management

    Need better division leadership. Need to start grooming mid level employees for a leadership succession plan

    Pros

    BB&t treats their employees well, they offer great benefits and are understanding that you have a life outside of work and are understanding when it comes to time off. They acknowledge hard work and are loyal to their employees. They provide their employees with the proper tools to succeed. Overall great place to work.

    Cons

    Health benefits can be a little pricey especially if u don't participate in their life force program which closely follows weight and body fat percentage. However if you live a healthy life style this will greatly benefit you.

    Advice to Management

    More help in branches. We find ourselves short handed often.

    Pros

    Stable, established bank that genuinely cares about employee well being. Great company culture that attracts driven and friendly bankers from the southeast.

    Cons

    Technology is somewhat obsolete compared to peers. The company has been making strides in improving tech, but the process is ongoing. Rapid career development is not common, employees are rewarded after years of dedication to the bank.

    Advice to Management

    The commercial bank is undergoing a lot of structural changes. Management should try not to show their own insecurities and fear of change in front of those they manage.
