    Pros

    Likeable, high-achieving co-workers; positive company reputation; competitive compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Typical corporate bureocracy of a large bank; small talent pool in headquarters city which leads to inconsistent service quality from internal support staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accelerate the share repurchase program to consistently increase our stock price.

    Pros

    Regions has good leadership in place in the Chattanooga market and very friendly culture. Regions is also very focused on providing a consistent customer service experience in hopes of exceeding the customers expectations every time. They are also very good about trying to promote from within.

    Cons

    Staffing is an issue at all branches. They want all their non-manager platform people to be cross trained to do teller work. In some cases, they count on these people too much having some people work for months in a teller window while still expecting them to meet established goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Upper management needs to find other was besides cutting staff so tight to remain profitable. Your great culture is eventually going to go down hill if this doesn't improve. Perhaps you should have a few floating universal bankers in each market.

    Pros

    Great Pay. Nice co-workers. Free parking in the garage.

    Cons

    Terrible Manager. Poor hiring of new loan officers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don"t hire managers that worked for a company 3-4 years and move on. They had to leave those places for a reason don"t ya think? I mean, if your running your department successfully, your profits are up than why do you leave

    Pros

    Regions is a good company to work for. Compensation is fair and employees are encouraged to grow in their position.

    Cons

    Lately there has been a staffing issue. This puts too much pressure on the employees working at branches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Branches need to be fully staffed.

    I worked at Regions Financial

    Pros

    It is a job. You get decent benefits.

    Cons

    This is a sales job hiding behind the title of a customer service job. It is the most stressful environment that I have ever worked. Many of the supervisors are incompetent, but they are allowed to stay. They are allowed to get rid of associates so that they have to take no personal blame. And the sales system is horribly flawed. But they will still hold you accountable even though they can't always tell you why your sale didn't validate. The supervisor you get will play a great role in your experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to upper management is to get rid of the incompetent middle managers. They will eventually destroy the company.

    I worked at Regions Financial full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Hours. The shifts were pretty good. Off on Sundays. Early Saturday morning hours.

    Cons

    Too Sales Driven. You got penalized when you didn't meet your sales goal. They pushed everyone to open new accounts even if the people didn't need them.
