    It can take awhile to advance in your specific branch;however, there are many opportunities always opening up which may be at other branches.

    Pros

    Benefits, PTO, in general Regions is a good place to work. I was a teller for two and a half years. Built great relationships with my customers, left a lasting impression. I am currently employed with the bank for two more days. I am leaving, as I feel it is time for change.

    Cons

    Not a lot a cons as far as the company. What I considered to be a con would of course vary from branch to branch. It is important to have a strong manager, not a pushy manager, not one that pawns their work onto others, ect.

    Advice to Management

    My particular branch experienced a lot of this over the course of a year and with a lot of upper management choosing to put their heads in the sand. In the end it was too much for me and I made a change. Company is good and as with any job moments will be had of frustration, ect. no work place is perfect.

    Pros

    Working with a great team plus great hours.

    Cons

    The staffing shortage has been a major problem.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that employees are going to get sick, take vacations and many other reasons that they might need time off. Never cut staffing to the point that is a hindrance when they do take time off.

  7. Great group of coworkers, very micromanaged environment.

    Pros

    The environment was really a team environment. If you were willing to put in the work, you were rewarded for it.

    Cons

    The managers had a tendency to micromanage employees. Every little thing that you did was scrutinized. No room for personal growth as an employee.

    Advice to Management

    QA system needs to be overhauled. Having advocates read from a script when dealing with customers doesn't lead to a great customer experience.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good coworkers, they do take time to recognize success of their employees

    Cons

    Some management is only there because they are producers, not because they know how to manage people.

    Advice to Management

    More time should be spent with branch leadership on how to be affective managers.

  9. I was disappointed that leadership expressed little interest in my training and development.

    Pros

    The pay was reasonable, not spectacular. I worked as a teller but became frustrated that there were no opportunities to learn additional responsibilities.

    Cons

    Management expressed very little concern in advancing my career. Also, I worked an average of 37.5 hours each week. Perhaps management devised such a work schedule so that the branch benefited from having a full - time employee without having to pay the cost of health insurance and other benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Properly train new hires. Then provide continued advancement opportunities.

  10. Great company for those who wish to grow long-term in the finance industry.
