    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

    Meeting unattainable sales goals. Astronomical sales goals are put into place but the requirements to achieve the profit equivalent for each product to qualify

    Pros

    Great coworkers, good customer base, easy to learn teller systems, good vacation time.

    Cons

    Medium sales goals, non-incentive goals, low payouts on incentives. No benefits for part timers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better. We are not our sales goals. Higher goals make us less engaged in our jobs.

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked in three markets with Regions and two out of three markets were very good to me as far as having a diverse and good working environment. HR in the first Region was very flexible with me when it came time for me to relocate to another state as far as transitioning my role so I could stay employed.

    Cons

    Sales goals are very aggressive and it is never enough even when you achieve the goal to get incentive. The role I am in has become something that wasn't in my initial job title such as teller duties.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to implement others ideas that could help everyone win on your team instead of only thinking of yourself.
