I worked at Regions Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Learned some valuable knowledge about the banking and financial industries.

Cons

Horrible local management. Vast discrepancy in pay for same positions/experience/education.

Advice to Management

Promote people based on aptitude and performance, not randomly selected "chosen ones". I saw many qualified employees passed over for positions in favor of less competent choices, who were friends of management.

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best thing about being a teller is banker hours. Closed on federal holiday, vacation/sick time, and benefits. This company provides many learning opportunities and advancements. From teller to platform, platform to assistant manager etc.

    Cons

    Constant pressure to push products. Tellers assume a lot of risk (cashing large checks, handling large sums of cash, etc.) for comparatively low pay. Tellers are only recognized positively for meeting sales goals while only being penalized for mistakes in other areas that make of the majority of their responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Allow diversity on the teller side. Vault tellers, head tellers, and normal tellers should not be expected to all produce the same results.

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has great values and does truly put the customer first. Although the management talent and overall morale for each dept varies greatly, Regions as a whole has a lot of talented managers and makes great efforts to instill the Regions Values amongst it's employees.

    Cons

    Regions doesn't compare to industry standards in the compensation category. Benefits are a lot less than compared to pre Regions/Amsouth merger.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they deserve. You get what you pay for and the general consensus between Regions employees is that you must leave the bank, go to work for BBVA Compass or another top competitor and then come back in order to get a pay increase.
