    I worked at Regions Financial full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Really encouraged work life balance. Employee recognition.

    Cons

    Slow to incorporate updated technology to do your job more efficiently and meet the expectations of the clients. Most of my clients bank with me due to the relationship that I established.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in uncovering tools that can be used by the employees and its clients.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Insurance, including short and long term disability. Paid vacation. Really those are the only pros...trying to hit 20 words.

    Cons

    Extreme sales pressure. Micromanagement at its worst. "Bonuses" are a joke. In addition to sales goals, Gallup goals are hard to attain while trying to hit sales goals. Salary is lowest among large banks. Next to impossible to advance beyond FSS. CBM likes to recruit from Wells Fargo rather than hire internally. Skeleton staffing means branches are always short handed. Call center employees continually tell customers to "come to the branch" and that we can do things that cannot be done. It is frustrating for employee and customer. I could go on and on...

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your employees. Moving from one region to another is like working for 2 different companies. Telbanking needs more training! Allow some decisions to be made in branches.

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lower level management is easy to deal with. There's a sales environment, but it's not overbearing. Business casual dress code.

    Cons

    The benefits are pretty bad compared to competition. Sales pressure is growing. Staffing is constantly an issue, they are reducing teller staff, so expect to spend 10+ hours a week away from what you do best.

    Advice to Management

    Don't drive us to be Wells Fargo, while we're not close right now it feels like we're headed in that direction. Expand benefits, especially around healthcare and retirement.

    Pros

    The people are nice, everyone seems to love working for Regions.

    Cons

    Tellers are supposed to push people to open accounts constantly, to the point where you are sat down and retrained if you aren't meeting your goals.

    Pros

    I've been working for Regions now for a year and some months now. I never knew a company could push sales so much. Even we, as teller, are required to hit so many referrals a quarter. If you're okay with sales, Regions is the place for you. They love to promote from within. If you're great at your job, it's very simple for you to move up. The managers are great and HR will help you move, if your really determined. The benefits are GREAT! I really love the fact that they put family first. This is one company that seriously vaules you life outside of work.

    Cons

    When tellers hit their sales goals, the payouts aren't as much as the FSS. We definitely deserve to be receiving, maybe not as much, but close to theirs. Other then that, I have no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
