TELLER (Current Employee) – Gettysburg, PA – May 20, 2018
BB&T in general is a great company with good benefits. The direct management isn't very good though. The schedules aren't always given out in a timely manner either. The clients were great once they got to know who you were.

This is a good company to work for, however, certain regions and upper management do not value skill or ability. This makes it hard to advance. Advancement is based upon those who fit the look that is desired.
Manager (Current Employee) – Wilson, NC – May 19, 2018
In a world where financial service companies are constantly in the news for negative (sometimes even fraudulent) activities... BB&T is a lighthouse into the darkness - built on good positive values that allow them to put their clients first.
Positive values, Positive Culture, Client Focused
Financial Analysts should put more weight on strong values vs just bottom line dollars
Because the schedule was inconsistent, it is difficult to plan around kid events and vacations. To get promoted takes years of dedication and not 12 months as they stated. Management appears to make decisions as they see fit instead of going with the policy.
Production Associate I (Former Employee) – North Carolina – May 16, 2018
I worked for this company for awhile with overtime quite frequent. The overall moral was terrible due to very poor management and favoritism and nepotism. They have great benefits and I truly hope every department isn’t like that. Before I left the place was quite depressing.
- Does not invest in employees for potential career growth, good benefits. Too much micro management from the top. No strategic vision at the top. Penny wise, pound foolish - lack of investments being made in the businesses
If you like dealing with money, then that's your place!

A bank is a wonderful place to learn how to more efficiently and effectively handle and deal with money, especially large sums. It was while working at BB&T that I learned how to count and accurately large stacks of money.

BB&T is not a terrible place to work if you are in the right location. I am in southeastern NC and we are severely micromanaged and work in horrible offices (practically a warehouse style with no natural light and no updating for some time). Its difficult to move up unless you know the right people, are follow the beaten path. It seems to be frowned upon for marching to your own beat even when you still accomplish the work. Although I agree with the company culture as a whole, I do not care for the environment I am in.
Branch banker team leader (Current Employee) – Statesville, NC – May 11, 2018
Been working here for almost 6 years and worked hard. Just recently got promoted to team leader and I love it. Great place to work. Vacation starts with 10 days. Goes up to 15 after 5 years. 10 sick days per year. Plus 10 holidays. Plus you get your birthday off.
Could have more back up staff when others are out sick or on Vacation
The culture was one of the things that I most enjoyed about the company and is the reason that I joined 10 years ago; however, recently the culture promoted from up top feels more and more like pure propaganda. Culture via motivational Facebook post; "Be Positive!", and things of that nature. Management has become more and more political, with extremely qualified people constantly passed over for friends of the hiring manager with no relevant experience. It's quickly becoming a "not what you know, but who you know" company and I don't want to be a part anymore.
