Thread regarding Truist Bank layoffs

The merger has all but ki---d my motivation

I enjoyed my job while I still worked for BB&T. It wasn't perfect but it was good enough that I didn't dread going into work and I wanted to do my best to keep it that way. Since we became a part of Truist, things have changed drastically. Job security is gone, our team has been broken up, the culture has shifted... Now I hate my job. Just the thought of work fills me with dread and I have no motivation to give it my all. I was worried before the merger but even then I couldn't have imagined just how much things would change for the worse.

After 32 years with BB&T, and the Truist merger looming, I took early retirement and left banking all together. Working in a completely different industry. The best move that I every made. Could not work for Truist any longer.

I am one of those that left and now work at “another big bank”. Every place has its issues, but anyone who tells you that Truist “is no worse than other banks” is being wildly untruthful.

Truist has the dreaded combination of a laughably bad work environment and terrible workflow/systems. The best banks are good at both, and the bad ones struggle with one of the two…Truist is terrible at both! Leaving was the best thing that ever happened to me on a professional level…I am back to not dreading returning from vacation…

The icing on the cake, Charlotte business journal names Kelly “Preacher” King Person of the year for pulling off this magnificent merger. All while throwing thousands of good dedicated, hard working people aside. You can’t make this stuff up folks. #CARE

Why smart people keep working at Truist is beyond my understanding.

Is it only because you cannot find any better job elsewhere? Are you really that smart, then?

The job market is hot, every day you keep working at truist is a day you wasted because you could have been working at a better place for a better pay

“ I joined Truist from a larger bank months ago. I remain completely delighted at the numerous positive changes it brought me overall”.

Translation: I was hired in at a management level. It’s great because I got a signing bonus; at Truist managers don’t work so I’m not expected to do much; AND I don’t have to mingle with minions. In short, because it’s great for me, everyone must be experiencing the same treatment. If not, who cares.

Saying things are worse at other big banks just means the whole industry is a clusterf*** at this scale. "Too big to fail" really means too big to exist.

I joined Truist from a larger bank months ago. I remain completely delighted at the numerous positive changes it brought me overall.

If you believe Truist is a dumpster fire, I can assure you that another of the big banks would be like a container ship fire. But don’t take my word for it, give it a go yourself. It will help you understand the definition of the word dread.

A lot of people clinging on at other big banks are hoping for a severance to retirement package because other places don’t have voluntary programs in favor of misery campaigns designed specifically to torment employees into quitting. I’m sure working with those people will be a pleasure, I have yet to meet a person at Truist who is even in the ballpark of the god awful managers and liars elsewhere.

Imagine the poor fools who are leaving jobs at other banks to come and work at this dumpster fire. Soon after arriving they are saying WTF is going on here?
