    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Time off policies are amazing, as they offer an allotment that is more than sufficient to delineate work from personal life. Office culture is parallel of a "can do, Will do, Teamwork type of environment."

    Cons

    Limited locations throughout United States.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow and expand company to advance taking footprint.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Great support from managers and those that have been with the company. lots of training to get you up to speed and continued support.

    Some systems seem outdated and slows down processes. Needs to look at what other institutions offer and catch up to the times.

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

    Pros

    Great work life balance, vacation time, and transferability if you choose to move somewhere else and want to transfer with the company. Health insurance is great as Regions is able to self-fund their health insurance so employees do not have to fear massive increases in premiums. In fact, from 2013-2014, premiums didn't rise at all! Family health insurance premiums are the same for any # of children so if you have 2 or more children, this is a great company to work for. Regions has made a terrific effort in creating opportunities and training for internal advancement. (please see cons of this)

    Cons

    If you are promoted internally, be sure you will be making thousands less than someone hired externally, and not just for a little while, but for years. Most Branch Managers promoted internally start out making in the low to mid 40,000's while those hired externally (which similar or even less experience) typically make in the 50k's from day one. Regions knows they have very competitive benefits and it shows in their salaries. The saying, "there is no such thing as a free lunch" rings true here. Basically, if you just want to earn more money and benefits are not as important you will be better off working for a smaller bank and vice versa. If you need good benefits Regions may be a better fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify your business model and stop expanding into something new every year. It is very difficult to extend excellent customer service and be an expert on over one hundred products and processes that are constantly being updated and added to. Also, adjust your goaling on your tellers as not every teller can achieve the same #. Just walk through random branches and you will be able to tell that they all operate differently.
