    Promotions are an expectation at Regions Financial. Each employee is pushed to perform their best and offered compensation for their hard work.

    Regions Financial is a large corporation which makes it difficult to have contact with upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Part-time benefits could be enhanced to encourage people to stay until a full-time position becomes available.

  6. The company is a slow paced, narrow minded southern company. Overall the benefit is nice but not exceptional.

    Pros

    Focus on employee engagement is good. The efforts to show employee appreciation are decent.

    I worked at Regions Financial full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The local bank leadership was mostly great people. The culture is very employee friendly. The various lines of business do attempt to work together.

    Cons

    The mortgage division is very weak. The rates are not competitive and the service from operations was by far the worst in my 14 years in the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really do not think upper management wants volume based growth. The compensation plan for loan officers is weak and turn over is very high. My advice would be to re - engineer the way you do business if you ever really want to grow.
