    Technology is a little out dated to work with.

    Pros

    Good company that tries to give a work life balance. A lot of the employees here are a close group that easily bring you into the fold.

    Cons

    The company has an identity problem. They promote their core values but do t seem to follow them in most aspects.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to you second and third line managers and make the hard decisions.

    Pros

    The company truly cares about its employees, and their lives. Regions also cares a lot about it's community, and giving back. Holidays and weekends off is wonderful.

    Cons

    The pay is low, even with a college degree. Having a degree does not give you a pay raise. Raises are small. There is a heavy push on sales.

    Advice to Management

    When a team meets its high sales goals, congratulate them for their hard work instead of doubling the sales goals. Some of the referral goals are too high to even meet.

  9. Great place to work, but no opportunity for advancement

    Pros

    Very nice people tow work with. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Absolutely no opportunities for advancement out of consumer banking. All outside hires for non consumer related banking. If you're happy as a branch banker, you'll love it, but don't expect to go anywhere. Everyone else is hired from the outside.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within!!!!!!!
