    I worked at Regions Financial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Sales goals for tellers aren't as difficult as other banks. Good support and tools provided. Depends on branch/manager if you will be happy.

    Cons

    Not nationwide, not up to speed with technology. Some branches have managers that are more concerned with themselves than the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management varies from branch to branch- not everyone is up to par.

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Regions has a great corporate culture and continues to develop as a regional bank with a bright future. If you are willing to work hard developing as a professional, you can advance within the organization.

    Cons

    Management at times can be slightly dislocated from the employees in the markets. Expense tightening has also some departures and additional responsibility for those currently at Regions.
