    Great company but limited opportunities in Pensacola

    Pros

    Good benefits, great coworkers, amazing bosses who do care, a good amount of vacation and sick time.

    Cons

    In the call center in Pensacola limited growth opportunities. A lot of favoritism. They say sales are meet the need but in reality we have to find a need for every customer which is not always a good thing. Unrealistic sales goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customers wouldn't be calling about fees for transfers and to close accounts if we didn't have to pressure them to open accounts to meet unrealistic sales goals.

    Ehhh

    I have been working at Regions Financial

    Pros

    The things I like here are basic things every bank has. Hours are good. Pay better than my last teller job. Most customers are happy with the bank which makes happy customers who are nice to be around.

    Cons

    Some branches do not have a good atmosphere. They don't like to help; they want you to be able to find the answers yourself and when starting new that is difficult and frustrating. I do not like this job. Very understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Co workers are great, decent benefits. Plenty of time off. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Huge disconnection between upper management and associates out in the branches. Constantly changing goals, focuses, and directions. Waste too much time and money on initiatives that are not beneficial. Performance management program constantly puts the question of job security in the back of your mind.
