Pros

Regions Bank is always hiring for new positions. Because of their numerous locations, you can always find a position available somewhere in the vacinity of your living area. Also, Regions Bank is very locally operated. Most customers continue to come to one particular bank location and tend not to stray, so you get to know them on a daily basis. Regions Bank rarely has other employees from other branches coming to " fill in " when there is a shortage of employees due to vacations or other circumstances, therefore you have a better chance to get to know your coworkers .

Cons

Regions Bank has a very high turnover rate. Many employees get hired on with the assumptioin that they will be with the bank for a certain amount of time. However due to the large turnover rate, a number of employees are dismissed or transferred to other branches because their branch didn't have enough business or because of other setbacks. These are situations that should be addressed before hiring new employees. Regions Bank has a reputation of assuming that long time employees must take on the role of senior positions, meaning when a position of management or seniority comes along, that employee should take it or at least apply for it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As a teller with Regions Bank I would like to let the Senior Management team know that they could learn plenty from the tellers and other employees within the branch if they would take the time to listen. I would suggest holding more meetings and really working together as a team on the issues that arrise instead of addressing the do's and don'ts of the company. Really listen to the other employees and give them a chance to fix a problem within protocol on their own without having to always be involved. Experience comes with learning, but how can you learn unless you experience it?

    Pros

    The only reasons to work at Regions is for the meger benefits. The pay is not bad, but not else should cause you to work for this bank.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is that this is a "good-ole boy bank". The Board and the CEO are always increasing each other's paychecks and stock options, while share holder value, and employee well-being is never considered. I got the impression they were just trying to keep the company afloat long enough to sell out to another bank, or get another MOE check.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. You are running a once proud and respectable bank in to the ground for your own greed.

    Pros

    Three weeks of vacation after your first year of employment. Regions is a great place to work for working Moms. They are very good about allowing you to leave when you need, if you have finished your work. The benefits are as good as any comparable company in this area.

    Cons

    VERY "Corporate" atmosphere. Constantly, getting "Regions values" videos because the merger was such a mess that most employees aren't sure who they're reporting to. The merger took too long to straighten out, but the pieces are beginning to align. Also, if you aren't in a profit generating area, you'll probably be laid off at some point in the future or you're working with a bunch of lazy people that only care about getting off on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organize your hierarchy, so employs know who reports to whom.
