    I worked at Regions Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I found all my superiors to be amazing people and very kind. Nothing bad to say about any of them. To this day it was my favorite job.

    Cons

    One downside to this job is you get a lot of turn over and it can be hard to keep up with it.

    Pros

    While Regions may not be the first bank to implement change, when they do it, they do it right. The bank is demonstrating an openness to change the way they have done things in the past, which will help keep Regions at the top of the super regional bank list. The majority of people are great to work with, the corporate facilities are fantastic work spaces and the bank truly does support you and your career development.

    Cons

    Some systems and processes are antiquated, but that seems to be changing. Some old school mentality is evident, but again that will take time and some retirements to change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to embrace change and challenge the status quo. Recognize that you hire people who are good at their jobs so let them do what they do best.

    Pros

    Lots of growth opportunities within the organization. Management is experienced and generally understanding. Flexible work arrangements and remote login is nice

    Cons

    The company has lots of systems that have to be learned in order to be productive. Sometimes communication is not clear from the executive management team.

    Advice to Management

    Sound management team. Remember to treat employees as assets and not liabilities

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

    Pros

    Able to buy extra vacation time through payroll deduction, 401k retirement, paid holidays, bankers hours, short term and long term disability

    Cons

    Crazy micro- management. Seniority counts for nothing. Told that your suppose to do what's best for the customer, but at the end of the day, if you haven't produced the numbers, it's unacceptable. Worked here for 7 years to get to be the teller supervisor only to have my position dissolved. Then the company announced they were going to raise everyone to $15 an hour, but if you already made that oh well. So the newbies make the same as i do. So much for my hard work, knowledge, and loyalty. Overworked and so not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Seniority has got to count for something. Employees should feel valued not a like a number.

    Pros

    It’s a calm environment but revolves around sales like any other job. But it’s not so bad. It has a decent environment

    Cons

    Stress wsome times but Not so bad. I didn’t like management and the training is terrible. I didn’t get to learn during the training because it didn’t teach well.

  10. "Summer intern at the bank."

    Pros

    Some data entry/busy work but that is to be expected at times. Overall gained a lot of experience to the banking industry as a whole and learned what the role of an analyst in the corporate bank looked like.

    Cons

    I was not always staffed on a project. It was nice to have down time, but I was trying to impress the company. Having more work would allow me to learn more and give me an opportunity to display my skillsets.
