    Pros

    Likeable, high-achieving co-workers; positive company reputation; competitive compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Typical corporate bureocracy of a large bank; small talent pool in headquarters city which leads to inconsistent service quality from internal support staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accelerate the share repurchase program to consistently increase our stock price.

    Pros

    Regions has good leadership in place in the Chattanooga market and very friendly culture. Regions is also very focused on providing a consistent customer service experience in hopes of exceeding the customers expectations every time. They are also very good about trying to promote from within.

    Cons

    Staffing is an issue at all branches. They want all their non-manager platform people to be cross trained to do teller work. In some cases, they count on these people too much having some people work for months in a teller window while still expecting them to meet established goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Upper management needs to find other was besides cutting staff so tight to remain profitable. Your great culture is eventually going to go down hill if this doesn't improve. Perhaps you should have a few floating universal bankers in each market.

    Pros

    the people, the expert experience that all are willing to share.

    Cons

    I need a more flexible work week, which is hard to do with Regions. I work with the Performance Team doing automated testing and a lot of testing has to be done late after business hours, but I still have to be in to work every morning.

    Pros

    Time off policies are amazing, as they offer an allotment that is more than sufficient to delineate work from personal life. Office culture is parallel of a "can do, Will do, Teamwork type of environment."

    Cons

    Limited locations throughout United States.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow and expand company to advance taking footprint.
