I worked at Regional Management full-time (More than a year)

Pros

A small, fast growing company in South Carolina.

Cons

Lots of backstabbing going on here, seems to be how managers survive. 2 people make all the decisions. Very autocratic. Favoritism is rampant.. Very 2 faced management. management is VERY insincere. State VP's and Branch managers throw their employees and support personnel "Under The Bus" as a SOP. Look up Prima Donna and it will show a picture of a few Senior VP's at this company. Even VP's have to get approval from the COO or CEO to buy anything like a phone or a printer. Cramped, Crappy offices unless you are a VP or above. Very unprofessional Management.

Advice to Management

Resign and hire some professional managers for day to day operations. Say what you mean and start giving honest feedback. Stop firing people simply because you don't like them or the way they talk, breathe or eat. Stop being so fake. Look at why turnover is so high and make adjustments. Be honest with the employees. AND stop telling the employees how great YOU are and what great things YOU have done. Try concentrating on the great things the employees are doing.

    I worked at Regional Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Branch Managers are easy to work with and make the office easy to work in. Pay is decent and hours aren't too bad.

    Cons

    The work load is okay but way too much is expected from upper management. This company is too worried about hiring their "friends" from former One Main and Citi Financial. It will be a shock to many former employees if Regional is open too much longer. You are taught to compete with each other in the office and in your district when you're supposed to be a team. Branch Managers are put under so much pressure to make loans that it is uncomfortable to solicit because you're under such pressure. Raising rates and extending terms are not the way to help your customers, but it is a way to create a cycle of debt that they cannot undo. The bonus structure is poorly created. It pays more to the supervisors and managers who aren't the ones busting their butts every day to get the office into shape. CSRs can only get a max of 650 and its taxed. They are lucky to make an extra $200 a month for all of the hard work they do. There is no room for growth if you are without a degree and a background at Citi. Tenure with this company means nothing.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise paying closer attention and rewarding your office teams a little better for their workload.

    Pros

    Salary is slowly increasing for Branch Managers. You get to meet great colleagues and make lifelong friendships. Great way to start your career in finance.

    Cons

    Home-Work balance is one of the worst i have encountered. They do not care about your family or home life. They will work you until you have had enough and leave; which will sadly be my fate. They throw people in positions with no training. In doing this, they assume their previous manager trained them. This creates a circle of Non-Compliance. They were trained by people who broke policy or law, then they continue on with their ignorance. They are turning great employees away. STOP making empty promises to employees about being "Manager Material". When time for promotion comes up you skip them for someone else. All of the employees who have no benefit or need of advancement stay, while the ones who could easily advance go. Stop worrying about not paying people unemployment and just let people go! You should not have to conference an adult 8 times before getting them out the door. Stop treating your great employees horribly, and the bad ones with kindness. And, for the love of god, stop looking over the most qualified individual for promotion. You promote the person who annoys you the most about getting promoted just to shut them up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to line your pockets and start caring about your employees. This business needs more PTO and at least ONE day of sick time. The high-stress environment makes for a tough lifestyle. We all need a break! Two weeks of PTO after 2 years is a joke. Stop piling on useless policies and procedures that make you check the same thing 4 times a day; but you implement it in different wording. Implement "Smarter not harder" techniques. Train the right staff up, and the wrong ones of the door.
