    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!

    I worked at Regions Financial (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with some very good people. However, most of them were in other departments.

    Cons

    Once you have served your purpose, you will be tossed aside, a tool no longer needed. Open office where you will catch anything & everything; there was no strategy or management, just people trying to keep their paychecks; do as they say, not as they do; promotions, raises, bonuses, & training all lacking; company continues to record regulatory problems over and over again.

    Advice to Management

    Sell since you are unable to do anything else due to regulatory constraints

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Cost cutting and layoffs are ongoing. Someone else's workload got dumped on me because the company refused to hire anyone else. After doing 2 jobs for 6 months, when it came time for my performance review, I was told "you're doing a great job but the company doesn't have any money for you right now." A month later when I told them I was quitting, suddenly I got a counter-offer for a 20% raise and a 5% bonus. Guys, what about a month ago at my performance review?? It's too late now!

    They will underpay you claiming cost cutting, no matter how hard you work.

    Advice to Management

    Your desperate attempt to cut costs means you don't reward hard working employees. Why are you surprised that more people are leaving?
