I worked at SunTrust full-time for more than a year

Pros

Benefits were pretty good; salary was in line with competitors.Worked with some really good people.

Cons

Upper management regards employees as dispensable; branch managers for the most part are people who spend their time self promoting rather than managing or producing revenue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep turning people over constantly and you will find yourselves ranked in the low tier of banks. You cannot overcome low interest rates by charging fees on everything to the clients. This bank is a totally different bank now, and not in a good sense.

    I have been working at SunTrust full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Overall work environment, Work from home policy, 401K match is great. Many managers notice good work.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic when you need to work with other teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make inter-team collaboration easier and rely less on tickets as a starting point. Allow teams to engage each other and then open a work order when needed.

    I have been working at SunTrust full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great environment, always busy, great management, and flexible for those who are in the military. They will work with you, especially if you are organized and have your drill schedule outlined for the year.

    Cons

    Recently they have increased goals for incentives, which will make it quite difficult to reach this year's standards. This could lead to lower performance and morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new point system will definitely need to be reevaluated after this quarter. I doubt many branches will reach the goals established.
