Company Culture

Like a lot of companies they want you to feel like your valued but the culture is to ignore your opinions and not keep you informed.

Support from management

They hired all the rejects that Wells Fargo threw out when the merged with Wachovia. Some of the most arrogant and unprofessional managers I've ever had to work with. The Lending Group was just as bad if not worse.

Career Development

No training unless it is absolutely needed and in my job I'm the red-headed stepchild. I'm a systems administrator and have never been to a class relating to the systems and software that I support.

Overall compensation for your work

Raises are horrendous.

Work-Life Balance

I worked 60 to 70 hours a week for a month and a half with one day off. Afterwards in my review I was told I was put in for a promotion that I might or might not get but probably would. I told them to shove it and the raise with it. I no longer work hard for them. My health and private life now take precedence over them.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get rid of the good ole boy mentality and start listening to your employees...maybe you wouldn't have had the disaster you had recently with your mainframe crashing.

What I like about the company

There are a lot of regular employees who will go out of their way to help you but they're becoming harder to find.

What I dislike about the company

They lied about vacation time. You're forced to go back to two weeks. They lied about receiving stock options...got them once and then they took then away.

Company Culture

They don't do much for their employees compared to orher companies

Internal Communication

The people who answer the phones for this company seem to be the last to know of changes and is the dumping ground for work other departments prefer not to do

Attitude towards older colleagues

This firm makes me wonder how they treat their parents because they automatically assume older people aren't accepting of change

Suggestions for improvement

  • Their management at svp and below is bad, they probably couldn't make it at a larger firm, people skills are bad at bbtis, Therefore my suggestion for bb&t invedtments is to close their doors and use the better affiliate Scott&Stringfellow

What I like about the company

Not much

What I dislike about the company

This company continues to use subpar systems and in house clearing firm in an attempt to save $, people skills of management is poor, treatment of older employees poor as well, sales program, sales program needs overhaulec

Company Culture

Terrible, they managed their staff with an iron fist. They micro manage you to the point that it's absolutely counter productive.

Support from management

They could care less about their employees, everyone is just a number.

Teamwork

Everyone is out for themselves

Internal Communication

Sometimes

Gender Equality

Yes

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes

Career Development

Very hard to move up unless you are in the clicks

Office / Work Environment

Every manager meeting they would threaten everyone with termination if goals were not met.

Environmental Friendliness

Yes

Work-Life Balance

They could care less about you or your family

Company Image

Absolutely not, worst place I have ever worked at by far.

Job Security

This is not a stable place to work, it's literally a revolving door.
