If they want to cut costs why don't they freaking stop opening up a branch on every corner?? I don't understand why we need 4 banks at every intersection.

no kidding... what IS up with that? seems the virtual banks, not the brick and mortars, are the ones offering the best deals... because they DON't have all that infrastructure overhead. But i will still bank with them... they've been very good to me. i suspect the post indicating otherwise is from a newly laid off employee.

Look people, as a SunTrust employee, I can tell you, management is spinning this thing like it will be for the overall benefit of the bank as a whole. It will only benefit the top execs. When we confronted one in a meeting asking if he would relinquish his bonus "for the overall benefit of the bank", he asked that security escort the person that asked the question out of the room. Look, SunTrust management is scum. I am ashamed to say I work there. Just today, more RIF packages, and it's not nearly over. Another RIF is scheduled in January 2008, and there will be more if they want 530 million recovered, beleive me. Those of us that are left are expected to do more, for less! It sucks.

Trust me, only the little Suntust employees will lose their jobs. There are so many levels of idle management it is crazy. Small management commettees write their own organizational charts, and they are full of high paying do nothing managers. It doesn't take a Harvard grad. to know that if you let exe's write the charts, they won't cut the middle managers, they want to keep their little piece of the pie. One middle managered managed five mailrooms, and only visited them once a year. Never did anything else. There is waste in the middle of SunTrust, its a crime. Stockholders are the ones paying, not to mention the little guys at the bottom.
