Next level of announcements delayed?

I'm hearing the next level of announcements is being delayed. Nothing like taking everyone's anxiety up to 11. It's really been horrible the way they are rolling this out. And now there is good chance this thing doesn't even close this year. ... —  read more

What goes around comes around.

Jan 2019: Boston consulting group came in and the 25 year old MBAs are driving management to fire staff apparently without concern for how the business will run without enough staff or experience. BBT culture is now destroyed. Morale is non existent... —  read more

We all know the next round of layoffs at BB&T is coming, but the main question now is when? Do we have any idea on a time frame? I'm asking primarily because I've already started panicking again, and it would be nice to know if I have another month... —  read more

Wilson NC Layoff Question

I’m a real estate investor in the Wilson market. BB&T has 2,200 employees in Wilson NC. The new 35mm building they are constructing to consolidate operations will house 650 people. Assuming the 6 branches in Wilson County make up about 100 employees... —  read more

This will be brutal

We can expect to see so many more layoffs once the merger is completed. Not only consolidation layoffs (which in themselves will be huge,) but this will give both banks a perfect opportunity to get rid of whomever they want without too much bad press... —  read more

Why the secrecy?

The little media coverage I find of the layoffs at BB&T have no details because the company is declining to say how many people were laid off. Why? What is the point of secrecy? Here's the latest example:... —  read more

Overworked and understaffed

I’m not sure what’s the point of the latest layoffs, considering we are already severely understaffed. Instead of hiring, the bank keeps laying off. Even our clients are complaining. How is that good for business? If at least they laid off people who... —  read more

How is it determined who gets cut?

Who is responsible for the decision making on who will get laid off at BB&T? I'm trying to figure out why do we keep losing some of our best workers. What kind of manager looks at the list of names and doesn't take into account something like that?... —  read more

The ultimate recipe for failure

BB&T has gotten to the point of being one the absolutely worst places to work. Morale is horrible at most locations and they hire the MDP or LDP folks straight out of college with no experience at anything other than partying and put them in a... —  read more

Layoffs are terrible and very disruptive

Layoffs are terrible and very disruptive. Those affected will always feel singled out, scared and upset. That is incredibly natural. It's not fun for anyone: those receiving the news, those giving the news, and those left behind. Reactions such as... —  read more

Are we done with layoffs at BB&T for now?

Very little is available on this week's layoffs. We don't know how many people were laid off, what was hit, and most importantly - are we done? Does anybody know if we can expect even more cuts in the following few days or has everybody been notified... —  read more
