    Pros

    Working with a great team will maintain your engagement. The regional president is an amazing woman.

    The "culture" of Regions seems to mask that they are just another bank.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency in handling staffing issues. More support for (and appreciation of) employees at understaffed branches.

    I worked at Regions Financial (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to know customers on a personal basis and they learn to trust you. Co-workers are very kind and treat as if you are family. (some branches)

    Cons

    Some branches do not have high traffic volumes such as others making the expectation of reaching high sales goals extremely difficult, most time unattainable. You are pressured to do the impossible and upper management micromanages you to the point to where you feel like you can't breathe. They always say do whats right for the customer, however when you're faced with the high goals.....you can't. If you cannot handle stress well, this job is NOT for you.

    Advice to Management

    Chill out. Know what your branches can and cannot do.

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

    Pros

    Decent branch atmosphere/culture, depending on management. If you learn all aspects of the customer's financial life, you can do very well. You need to adhere to their sales process of needs-based selling, in order to be successful, consistently.

    Cons

    Every associate wears alot of hats. If you are used to only producing checking accounts, this is not the bank for you. You are expected to be a fully-loaded banker, plus alot of other administrative and lending responsibilities. Requires quite a bit of selling via telephone.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline administrative/technology processes to take some weight off of all the bankers have to do. And coach the lazy bankers out. There are way too many of them.

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

    Pros

    Competitive salary and opportunity for incentive pay. Vacation is negotiable when being recruited. I asked for 3 weeks and it was given also AVP title. Good sick time policy 12 days per year.

    Cons

    Lot's of goals and sales pressure. Branch Manager is normally the only salaried associate so if a teller is out of balance the Manager will have to stay. If the alarm goes off at the branch at 10:00 pm, the Branch Manager bad to go.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your associates and customers and the sales will come. Pressuring associates to meet unrealistic goals will cause them to do unethical things like Wells Fargo.

    Pros

    Great people, excellent training, good work hours. Ok compensation.

    Cons

    Required to call the same high value customers multiple times per month to enroll them in new services, and still retain them as customers. Calling so often just annoyed them.

    Advice to Management

    Less emphasis on outbound sales calls

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Regions really allows you to work in the community by providing financial education classes. Great health benefits and perks for the employees.
