I have been working at Regions Financial full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Training classes: within and outside the bank. Free checking account setup with no min. deposit amount.

Cons

There is no job recognition for the associates at the bottom of the food chain. Seems that recognition comes at the AVP level or higher.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote associates that are competent to do the job at the next level, not by seniority. For senior/executive management I would suggest doing an audit on associate productivity in the operations department in the Birmingham area.There is no job accountability held within a certain system that is used by all bank locations and back office workers. Without having this accountability workers are allowed to hide in secrecy of not doing their fair share of departmental work, while it is pasted off to other associates on the team.

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has great values and does truly put the customer first. Although the management talent and overall morale for each dept varies greatly, Regions as a whole has a lot of talented managers and makes great efforts to instill the Regions Values amongst it's employees.

    Cons

    Regions doesn't compare to industry standards in the compensation category. Benefits are a lot less than compared to pre Regions/Amsouth merger.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people what they deserve. You get what you pay for and the general consensus between Regions employees is that you must leave the bank, go to work for BBVA Compass or another top competitor and then come back in order to get a pay increase.

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The best thing about being a teller is banker hours. Closed on federal holiday, vacation/sick time, and benefits. This company provides many learning opportunities and advancements. From teller to platform, platform to assistant manager etc.

    Cons

    Constant pressure to push products. Tellers assume a lot of risk (cashing large checks, handling large sums of cash, etc.) for comparatively low pay. Tellers are only recognized positively for meeting sales goals while only being penalized for mistakes in other areas that make of the majority of their responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow diversity on the teller side. Vault tellers, head tellers, and normal tellers should not be expected to all produce the same results.
