  1. I was disappointed that leadership expressed little interest in my training and development.

    I have been working at Regions Financial

    Pros

    The pay was reasonable, not spectacular. I worked as a teller but became frustrated that there were no opportunities to learn additional responsibilities.

    Cons

    Management expressed very little concern in advancing my career. Also, I worked an average of 37.5 hours each week. Perhaps management devised such a work schedule so that the branch benefited from having a full - time employee without having to pay the cost of health insurance and other benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Properly train new hires. Then provide continued advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    It's an easy job for my department but definitely not a lot of potential for growth in my field!

    More like a high school setting than a career.

    Advice to Management

    allow more freedom!

  5. The company is a slow paced, narrow minded southern company. Overall the benefit is nice but not exceptional.

    Pros

    Focus on employee engagement is good. The efforts to show employee appreciation are decent.

    Cons

    Like anywhere, the feeling of Big Fish vs Little Fish is there. Employees do not seem to be compensated well enough compared to other financial institutions.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere that contributed to further understanding of banking industry.

    Cons

    Ivory tower management style from a southern based company that did not lend itself to much transparency strategy wise.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees real insight about job performance rather than a canned printout for corporate.

    Really listen to the yearly engagement survey and act when your associates say there is something wrong with lower level leadership.

    Pros

    They hand feed you all the information you need to make your sales goals. There are other jobs that could be worse, you have upward mobility, the ability to transfer and lots of sales focused classes.

    Cons

    Too many meetings to micromanage employees and sometimes I forget that I actually work for a bank instead of a sales company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all employees and watch your managers.
