    Pros

    Pay is good. Good group of peers. Good benefits, PTO. Good training.

    Goals are not realistic. If you meet your goals you are rewarded with higher goals. Too much micromanaging. Daily number reporting conference calls.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging.

    Pros

    This is a really great company to work for. Voted best bank in the United States of America for 2015.

    Cons

    I wish we had branches in more states, so I could live anywhere in the United States and still be able to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Regions management is great. I would love to have more branches in the United States, so that if anyone moved, we could keep our positions!

    Pros

    Supportive management and human resources department. Team oriented environment to achieve goals.

    Cons

    Quarterly goals are hard to achieve to receive bonus. Helps to be licensed in insurance and annuities. Also must make daily sales calls to customers and it can be uncomfortable.

    Pros

    Work-Life Balance, Comprehensive Benefits. There may be growth opportunities in the future as the company continues to recover from the financial crisis.

    Cons

    Behind technologically, super conservative culture. If you want to innovate or go against the grain, this is not the company for you. Instead, you'll find yourself surrounded by committees, working groups etc, but not much changes.

    Advice to Management

    Please learn how to keep younger employees that are bright. Once they get a load of the conservative culture that is heavily weighted toward college football, anti-public transportation, they realize that there a more fish in the sea and leave.

    Pros

    Full service bank with a few pockets of well seasoned professionals (most of them recent hires from larger organizations) sprinkled here and there who "get it."

    Cons

    Oddly organized in the most inefficient manner with multiple redundancies and duplicate coverage abound, total identity crises not being sure what it wants to be when it grows up... And the most embarrassing example of nepotism to be found on Wall Street.

    Advice to Management

    Align yourself like a big bank or embrace being the oversized community bank that you are.

    Pros

    Set schedules are nice and they don't change them often

    Cons

    Horrible management. Favoritism towards friends and family makes it hard to move up

    Advice to Management

    Look for the people who are working there butts off and trying to make the company better and take better care of them
