    Pros

    It is a Job that pays the bills

    Cons

    Let me start. The local managment will tell you that there are no goals. But oh! Wait! there is what they call PSPM and BMPM. You get written up for not meeting goals. 15k Min for a Banker and 700 points for a manager. yes! they rate you on points or you get a write up. Smells like Wells Fargo. They call it business as usual if you make the minimum. They have this thing called needs based sales conversations, but it is more like need to meet sales conversations. But my favorite part the local HR calls themselves HUMAN CAPITAL MANAGERS, more like HUMAN CATTLE MANAGERS. Put people first is their value, but it is more like put Regions First. Local Management wants YES people, and if you share an idea you are frowned upon. Stay away from this place.

    Advice to Management

    Inconsistent in disciplinary actions. Other employee's notarize something for someone when they are not present and they get a write up (illegal mind you), but you do not "fit" the values of the company after years of above average performance they fire you (with no prior disciplinary actions).

    Pros

    Salary is comparable to others in the area(Alabama is one of the lowest paid markets however).

    Cons

    Chaotic Management, Knee Jerk Reactions, Unable to have a family/social life.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate all management from the top to the bottom to see if they are living up to ALL of Regions promised Mission Statement. This company has gone to a 'dog eat dog' environment in the last 18 months and I have given up my family/social life and health just to work 60-80 hour weeks for management that doesn't have a clue of what's really going on. When you have employees that have been there +10 years you would think a new manager would listen and value their input, instead they are such control freaks and micro-managers the question and doubt your opinion. This company is about to hit the iceberg because the people in the foxholes can only take so much.

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

    Pros

    People are fun and get vacation days and sick time. Health benefits aren't bad either. On sit store as well.

    Cons

    They say it's not sales, but it's sales. And if you don't hit those sales, you get a write up.

    Advice to Management

    Actually help employees!

    Pros

    good benefits, can purchase additional time off.

    Cons

    HIGH PRESSURE SALES. no question. Extremely unethical behavior condoned by top management. They hide behind a financial roadmap, and Texarkana market has turned into Wells Fargo (in its hayday) atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Do not treat bankers and employees like salesman. Also, when you hire young bankers, they almost always have to hire outside the bank for management positions.

    Pros

    There nothing's good to say.

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales goals. Leadership is nonexistent. Saturdays are the worst. During the interview they will tell you that you will cut time during the week to work the 4 hours (always ends up being like 5 hours) on your Saturdays but that's not true, it becomes a 'maybe' thing and you are forced to work overtime. The pay is crap. It is not worth the stress. You get vacation days and sick days, but they like to get mad if you use it.

    Pros

    Most employees were excellent to work with and kind. Always willing to help when they could. Made the workplace bearable to work in and thankful for them.

    Cons

    Made complaints to manager and nothing was done about employees trying to micro manage other employees without supervisors title. Made to sell products whether you believed in them or not by investment department otherwise you would be reprimanded.

    Advice to Management

    Take employees complaints seriously so the work place is more conducive

    I worked at Regions Financial full-time

    Pros

    Decent medical benefits through BCBS.
    Monday thru Friday job schedule.

    Cons

    Overworked with too many projects on one person at any given time.
    No training on the position you are hired for other then the regulatory training.
    Poor communication with other departments.
    Unreasonable deadlines given for last minute projects.

    Advice to Management

    If you have too many projects, hire more people instead of spreading the work load onto already overworked employees.
    Listen to your employees concerns and issues instead of just smiling and nodding and hoping it goes away.

    Pros

    Very few, met a couple good co-workers. Good branch level relationships. Obtaining a good general level of problem solving and finance knowledge.

    Cons

    The pay is much lower compared to other banks. Absolutely no room for advancement. Upper management hires from outside. A lot of broken broken promises by management and upper management is rarely present. The company sees you as a number. I would not recommend this company.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your people!
