    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

    Benefits and holidays are great.

    Cons

    Advancement is hard unless you know someone.

    Advice to Management

    Was a great place to work before Amsouth took over. And yes, Amsouth took over. There was no merger. Only thing that remained of Regions was the name.
    How about going back to the old ways when the employees mattered more than the money?

    I worked at Regions Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    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?

    Pros

    Base pay is decent and vacation benefits are good. There are no other good things to say about regions. Benefits are similar to any other company

    Cons

    Bonuses not attainable and management is asked to do too much. Poor leadership in executive positions. The talent level for this bank is mediocre at best.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your associates by making attainable goals and hiring additional staff

    It was the worst time in my career history ever.

    The managers let the head teller to run the branch's business who did not know anything about management and treated co-workers unfairly.

    Pros

    They give good benefits... but you pay for them!

    Cons

    You have to sacrifice your entire life including your family, exercise, fun time, etc because to move up in the company you have to work almost 24/7. If you don't have a family or want a life outside work you might like regions. The rules they make us follow actually produces horrible experiences for the customer. We can't even give them someone to call to resolve the customers concern... we always tell them to call 1800-regions. Then the customer calls you back cussing you out!

    They also put so much pressure on you for goals they make... which are unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and find another company to work for because I understand you are just following orders

    Pros

    Nothing to say good about .

    Cons

    All I can say racist . Was not clear when I apply for. I got terminated in 3 weeks bcoz of my past history even after doing all the background checking . And I was not guilty and such . The condition it says doesn't match with me. So I answered no. Very confusing and very racist. I didn't had to for a single trail. Who terminated the employee after background checking and also when she is not guilty at all .

    Advice to Management

    BE specific . Do t use co fusing language and don't be racist and discriminative

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

    Pros

    Almost impossible to get fired, starting pay higher compared to other banks, hours, most weekends off, out by noon on Saturday, always off Sunday

    Cons

    Understaffed, no back-office resource, inconsistency in employee knowledge of policy and procedure, aggressive sales, micromanaging, forced to use cheesy corporate tag lines, insurance is awful-dental insurance based in Alabama so any one that lives outside that state is forced to use what is considered out-of-network dentist at higher cost. Unfair! HR contact is local and part-time. Only works four days/week and out by 1:30pm. Difficult to contact corporate HR

    Advice to Management

    Create more networking groups to bring employees together, have events to build team morale

    Advice to Management

    There is none!
