    Current Employee - Branch Team Leader

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

    Pros

    friendly atmosphere with the branch, bankers hours (decent work/life balance)

    Cons

    Most employees are looking for any way to escape, no chance of promotion within the company, high level of disconnect with upper management, antiquated technology,strong push towards sales only mindset, lofty sales goals that are unachievable unless you are in a high volume branch, benefits are expensive and cover next to nothing, just a job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop driving out employees with lack or staffing, low pay, and no chance of a "career". Give the employees any reason to want to work hard for you (compensation,career growth) or you will continue to lose all of your capable employees that have not settled in for the long haul in thier current position

    Current Employee - Branch Team Leader in Nashville, TN (US)

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

    Pros

    I've worked for this company for over 5 years. The atmosphere is great. There are a lot of wonderful associates. The job isn't difficult if you are willing to work hard.

    Cons

    The pay is not great, especially if you are promoted within. The company has gone to a more sales approach, where it is very pushy. Banking has changed a lot in the last few years and I feel like Regions is trying to figure out how handle the change by throwing a lot of different micro management procedures at their associates. In return, morale is being lost and people are leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out an approach and stick with it. If you are constantly changing how you want us to do things, we will stay frustrated. It's hard to stay positive when we don't know the direction we're going in.
