Is Truist perfect? No. Is it as horrible as some are making it sound to be? Also no. There was a merger, things have had to change. Some things changed for the better, some changed for the worse. It's the nature of the beast. Put on your big boy/girl pants and move on.

The problem I see is that it is us against them. Everyone is blaming each other. We are working hard to get things done and I personally feeling like we, those in the trenches, are be hung out to dry. It’s not a good feeling and personally, I am tired of feeling inadequate. I am busting my a-s, doing so much more work, more hours just to get the data entry completed and follow up on the back log. I don’t even have the time to do my actual job. I am hoping it gets better soon.
change is hard, and the ever changing cadence is hard to follow.. but for those of us "average joes" in the trenches.. where is the upside? No one has sold me on a "reward" for seeing this through.
Instead you're left with a huge percentage of your workforce answering calls from recruiters, which leaves the company extremely vulnerable, and puts even more stress and pressure on those left behind who have embraced the change, and are optimistic of better days ahead. It seems like a vicious cycle, and poses the bigger cultural question.. does anyone really care? I believe the answer is "no" and no one will, until the clients start bailing (which at this juncture is likely suppressed by the pandemic).
'Put on your big boy/girl pants and move on"...of course we will move on with our lives but THAT DOES NOT MEAN we don't take Truist and its bad managers to account. Truist is a public limited company and is claiming to be a top notch player in the banking. Well then behave like one. With big size comes increased visibility and responsibility for good behavior. Duplicity will cost you big time...don't expect the 'wronged' to walk away quietly.
It's not the change, it's the cruelty.
Agree with OP. Change is hard.
Feels like all the hBBT people are the most but!-hurt here on this site. Understandable considering you all thought you were lifers at a "150 year old family company". Those days are long gone, y'all.
For your own good, refocus the energy you are wasting on complaining and focus it into moving on. You are burning precious time and energy.
And it’s cause the leaders and I can only speak of the technology leaders (Case, Meyer, Massey, Elliott, Loeb) claim they are “of the people and care about their people. They only care about their white little club and only bring in women (Loeb) when she knows NOTHING about technology. How exactly does that work??
I have two words for you and they’re not Happy Birthday!
The original post is likely by either 1) someone who has a limited employment history and has little to compare the Truist experience to, and/or 2) is extremely self-focused and has not been treated poorly and believes their experiences at Truist are the only “real”, “true” experiences. They are probably always dismissive of opinions contrary to their own.
Also the one who wrote the original post seems to have extremely limited/non-existent empathy skills (but I bet you they’re going to protest that they are a very caring, “woke” person and the other posters are just complainers.)
@OP+1dLaJfdv, You don't get it, how horrible people have been treated and the talent we lost, so they can bring their efficiency ratio down. It's not a question of putting your big boy/girl pants on, it's about treating people with respect, being transparent. The merger is a disaster, no good will come from this.
"Is it as horrible as some are making it sound to be?" No...it's much worse!
