    Pros

    It's a good company to work, good benefits & paid holidays off

    Cons

    Should've did FBI background check during initial process before actually letting people start on the job

  2. The company is a slow paced, narrow minded southern company. Overall the benefit is nice but not exceptional.

    The cost of living is low and Regions is a prestigious place to work in the south.

    The process in HR department is slow. It's hard to move up.

    Pros

    Good company, good products, good benefits.

    Cons

    Management was terrible. From the time I was hired, no direction, no support, no guidance, and no corporate training. Most employees were unhappy, and no one played on the same team. No leadership. HR was great at onboarding, but after that you are on your own. HR had favorites and did not support you otherwise.

  6. Satisfying employer with room for improvement

    Pros

    Focus on employee engagement is good. The efforts to show employee appreciation are decent.

    Cons

    Like anywhere, the feeling of Big Fish vs Little Fish is there. Employees do not seem to be compensated well enough compared to other financial institutions.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere that contributed to further understanding of banking industry.

    Cons

    Ivory tower management style from a southern based company that did not lend itself to much transparency strategy wise.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees real insight about job performance rather than a canned printout for corporate.

  8. Regions was your prototypical Commercial bank with a mortgage division

    Pros

    The local bank leadership was mostly great people. The culture is very employee friendly. The various lines of business do attempt to work together.

    Cons

    The mortgage division is very weak. The rates are not competitive and the service from operations was by far the worst in my 14 years in the business.

    Advice to Management

    I really do not think upper management wants volume based growth. The compensation plan for loan officers is weak and turn over is very high. My advice would be to re - engineer the way you do business if you ever really want to grow.

  9. Ok to work for, but you better follow all the HR rules. HR/Training comes before everything. Including customer service

    Stable company, Ok with salaries.

    Cons

    Despite what they say, training and HR events are more important than your daily job or customer support.

    Pros

    If you are on the right team, the sky is the limit. Great CSM's, managers, and leadership in Central Florida.

    Cons

    Staffing can be a struggle at times, but the industry is changing to a smaller scale on staff with the use of technology.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly add back a little staff but other than that...keep on keeping on.

  11. Expect more!

    Culture values internal experience so opportunities to advance are limited.
