Great corporate culture with plenty of opportunity for upward mobility.

Branch Service Leader (Current Employee)
Birmingham, AL

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

ProsRegions provides many opportunities for employees to move up the ladder, provides solid career paths, and typically helps to promote within the company. Every manager I have worked for has been fair and willing to help develop me as an employee. Rarely do I run across somebody I absolutely can't stand to work with.

ConsSometimes salary seems low for the responsibilities required in the position.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more opportunity for sales training among associates.

Excellent

Prime Time Teller (Former Employee)

great work/life balance and superb middle management. salary and compensation were lacking, however.

Portfolio Manager (Current Employee)
Birmingham, AL

I have been working at Regions Financial full-time for more than 5 years

Prosflexible hours and friendly work environment. promote from within and are keen to develop young talent. great place to start a career in finance.

Conscompensation and benefits are not great. i guess thats one of the tradeoffs to a relaxed work environment. coworkers can be unambitious. this sometimes makes project work difficult.

Regions is a great company to work for.

Teller (Current Employee)
Bainbridge, GA

I have been working at Regions Financial part-time for more than a year

ProsYou get to be apart of something greater.

ConsThe only con I seen was that our branch was as involved as other branches on different things.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would really let each Branch express themselves a little more. It may gain more customers.
