    I have been working at BB&T full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very stable environment. There is tons of institutional knowledge at BB&T. The company STILL has a pension and 401(k). Benefits start immediately. The pay is fair at the company. BB&T strongly pushes it's mission, vision and values consistently. The CEO stands firm on the values and he seems like a fair man.

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive. Company has lots of employees who have been in place for decades which makes the company associates resistant to change and hard to advance. Many of my teammates don't even use instant messaging. It can be difficult to advance in some areas because those associates who have been in roles for literally decades. It's also a "gotcha" environment that breeds mediocrity. Ultra conservative and the company is a "follower". As an example the company's mobile app just started allowing (2015) mobile check deposits through the app. Most banks initiated that process many years before. Company has issues with diversity at mid and high levels of management.
