    Pros

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

    Very hard to grow outside of the branch level.

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

    Pros

    They offer good benefits. Onsite medical at some locations.

    Cons

    Be ready to train yourself. Prepare yourself to be thrown under the bus and stressed out everyday. Management is always in meetings and you must make million dollar decisions that will surely get you into trouble the next day. Take good notes, learn what you can, and post out in 24 months.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so cheap with your training dollars. Create a manual, and stick to the rules. Have your employees' backs. Encourage everyone to be promoted, not just your favorites.

    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.

    The business model is a little outdated, at least at the Branch level.
