Pros

excellent upper level management that extends throughout the company. room for ideas, growth, etc. Regions strongly favors loyalty and time spent within the company.

Cons

tends to pay less (compared to private sector, but that can be expected). too many restrictions and challenges for lower level employees

    Pros

    The people seem nice enough.

    Cons

    This company suffers from a severe case of inbreeding. If you're not from Alabama or have no ties to the University of Alabama, you're regarded as an oddity. Job advancement and security usually comes down to whether you own enough crimson and houndstooth in your wardrobe. Birmingham is a hell hole for the most part. Schools are mostly awful, except in the affluent areas where they are merely mediocre. Corrupt city government, a broke county, lots of empty buildings downtown, and one of the highest murder rates in the country. This is not a good place to work and Birmingham is not a good place to live.

    Advice to Management

    Quit trying to make a profit by cutting costs for salaries. Quit giving plum jobs to people who were in your fraternity or sorority at UA, but otherwise have no qualifications. You cannot expect to keep good people when you offer them 1% or 2% raises every year. I've seen too many good people leave out of frustration with the culture and poor compensation.

  2. Micromanagement at its best

    Pros

    Stable company, most people a pleasure to work with

    Cons

    Unless you're a pro with sales, don't expect much job mobility
