    Pros

    The majority of employees are laid back and very relaxed. they know how to have fun and can really make you feel like a family. sick time is available at a great quantity.

    Cons

    If bi-lingual your workload will be more than than others due to the demand for spanish. Customers can easily get irritated if you are unable or unwilling to cash their check.

    Pros

    the people, the expert experience that all are willing to share.

    Cons

    I need a more flexible work week, which is hard to do with Regions. I work with the Performance Team doing automated testing and a lot of testing has to be done late after business hours, but I still have to be in to work every morning.

    Pros

    I've worked for this company for over 5 years. The atmosphere is great. There are a lot of wonderful associates. The job isn't difficult if you are willing to work hard.

    Cons

    The pay is not great, especially if you are promoted within. The company has gone to a more sales approach, where it is very pushy. Banking has changed a lot in the last few years and I feel like Regions is trying to figure out how handle the change by throwing a lot of different micro management procedures at their associates. In return, morale is being lost and people are leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out an approach and stick with it. If you are constantly changing how you want us to do things, we will stay frustrated. It's hard to stay positive when we don't know the direction we're going in.
