    Pros

    Great benefits; one of the few companies that still offer retirement benefits and sick time outside of your vacation time.

    Cons

    Very hard to grow outside of the branch level.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let passionate and loyal employees go to your competitors.

    I worked at BB&T full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Working there felt like family.

    Cons

    Lots of changes happened too rapidly. There was never enough time to adapt to one change before another one was made. This leads to employees being confused. There was not enough opportunities open for promotion at that facility to accommodate the qualified candidates with new, higher paying jobs, The pay could be better. I would often have to work overtime to make a decent check.

    good schedule. They try to make sure you are no more than 30 miles from you house.

    You won't make to much money in this company or go anywhere if you don't know somebody up there.

    Pros

    Great people, good benefits, healthy 401k match, pension, and the work itself is very enjoyable. You get an opportunity to really become part of the fabric of your community and learn who the players are.

    Cons

    Technology is outdated and too many people are BB&T lifers who drink the kool-aid. Constantly changing priorities and too much nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    Hire outside talent with fresh ideas, hold everybody accountable for executing the vision and not just some roles.

    Pros

    BB&T values family and I love their incentive program.

    Cons

    I wasn't to big on pushing a sale on a customer especially if I knew that they did not need the service.

    Advice to Management

    The amount of time you have to stay in your position to post out was a bit extreme.

    The company rewards its long-term employees with great benefits.

    There is a line for promotion and seniority will usually take priority

    Upgrade some of the technology in the office.
