    Pros

    Senior management fosters a culture that is pervasive and positive. The company seems to truly care about the employees and employ several methods to ensure employee development and opportunity.

    Cons

    Competitive business decisions within the credit culture have somewhat of a hangover effect from the economic downturn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to normal risk levels

    I worked at Regions Financial full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The leadership there was great,there were positions for advancement,the atmosphere was positive and kept morale up and there chances to earn extra money by promoting products offered by the bank.

    Cons

    Some of practices in sales were repetitive in that if the same customer called several times in one day,each associate he/she spoke with was required to discuss the same products on each call.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Because the all industries are constantly changing in an effort to improve and be competitive,more time needs to be allowed for training and "hiccups" in new information should be corrected before it is presented to the associate to learn incorrectly.

    Pros

    Professional atmosphere with great chance for advancement. Bonus structure. Great working conditions and facilities.

    Cons

    Industry is changing through no fault of Regions Bank and most of the customers coming into the bank are those of lower incomes, with problems or with overdrawn accounts which they don't feel are their fault.

    Pros

    Great personal and professional growth opportunities. Competitive compensation. Very much committed to promoting from within and developing leaders internally. Friendly yet professional work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Benefits are just average. Can't really think of any other cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more willing to listen to associates and not be so narrow minded. Think out of the box and be a little more open to change even if it means a bit more risk.

    Current Employee - Vice President, Marketing in Birmingham, AL

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Not the best compensation in the world, but the benefits are good. Small annual salary increase based on your performance and the company performance. (Basically cost of living/inflation adjustment.) I started out with 3 weeks of vacation being an exempt employee. You earn a 4th week of vacation after 5 calendar years with the company. 401k 4% match. Work/life balance is great. They understand last minute things come up and you have to take care of it. Lots of opportunity for advancement in or outside your department.

    Cons

    No tuition reimbursement for Master's Degrees or MBA, only undergraduate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the customer, especially younger ones. The majority of our current customers are getting older and their needs are not the same as younger customers. Invest in technology and don't charge for it. Change policies to benefit the customer rather than the company. (i.e. Reg E, check cashing, etc.)
