You are complaining in a topix forum based in a city where most of the people have zero concept of money. They would likely ask if that is the stuff they get a bunch of on the first of the month on their "government card".

I have banked with BB&T for years and never had any problems with them. If you are a young person or just new to banking should review the banks policies to avoid paying fees.

This link will take you to BB&T's page explaining fees and all banks have a similar page.
Remember that even if you have posted a credit or debit in your ledger, you still must check your accounts to see that they have been posted in the banks ledger.
I've used many banks for over 30 years. Since when do I have to check the timing, the sequence or the accuracy of all this. If you do, you're a fool

The culture has been described by others as "traditional" or "conservative". Those are window dressing terms. Modern psychologists would call the culture "a fear-based culture". You must always fear and respect management, and always deliver good news or you fear being reprimanded for being a problem.

BB&T does not pay market, and has great difficulty responding to market data or salary negotiations. When I was hired, there was little salary or vacation negotiation. I have heard that new candidates have tried to negotiate offers, and the offers were revoked. It would depend on which division you work in and how enlightened your manager is.

Many people are under-worked, so to the fill the time they spend a lot of time gossiping or surfing the internet. Employees band together in very tight cliques. This has lessened in recent years, but this is an environment where people will exhibit coldness and other bullying behavior until you are "accepted" into their group.

The standard vacation package is 10 days a year, and they require that you take 5 of those days consecutively. You are terminated if you fail to do so.

The health insurance benefit has decreased remarkably in past years. I have not participated in the program since it was so poor, but as of 2009, I believe the best health plan requires a $1000 deductible.

They have no concept of "ergonomics". If you need a new chair, you need to bring your own.

Some managers are actually very abusive to their employees. My manager regularly screamed at me. Another high profile manager in one of the IT divisions yells at employees and calls them "f*cking idiots!" to their face.

Management claims you have "flex time", but they make note of when you come and go.

Working from home is frowned upon, and discouraged.

Your coworkers are generally very fake and shallow. They act friendly to your face to extract information that they report back to management. They probably view it as a survival mechanism.

Training is virtually non-existent, unless you are one of management's pets.

Employees are not informed of promotional opportunities or positions. Management "pets" are "groomed" and "selected" for the position way in advance.

Dress in the IT divisions is business casual, although you never see any other bank customers.

You must update your voicemail daily to say you are in the office.

You must always wear a badge and a silly nametag, and attend training on the "Perfect Client Experience".

After working at BB&T for several years, your skill set will become so out-of-date that will have trouble finding a job anywhere other than Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

Advice to Senior Management – It is time to hire some workplace psychologists to assess the work culture here. A "culture of fear" does not lend itself to high productivity or innovation, but to low morale. If you want the bank to move forward and be a decent place to work, you must bring in some high level people from outside the company (and preferably outside the banking industry) to run departments. Stop recycling the "good ole boys" into different high-ranking positions. Try hiring blacks and gays to diversify your work environment!
You are right about the culture...and it's only getting worse! Management uses intimidation tactics to pressure you into forcing sales on people who don't really want them. I almost feel like a used car salesman working for this company. It is definitely a "NUMBERS" driven environment! Perfect client experience is TOTAL BS! I am really disappointed in the direction this company is heading.
