    I worked at Regions Financial

    Pros

    Good products, decent underwriting, and by and large good team members that are willing to help the newer employees better understand what is required.

    Cons

    Leadership is not very good. There is much to much turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just do a survey and read the results. Get out in the field and listen to those in the field. Look at individual performers and listen to both the good performers and those that are not performing. Those not performing are a big key to Regions success or failure. Clearly, they know what the problems are.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work times to complete projects.
    Good benefits if hired on permanently.

    Cons

    Not enough tools to complete upgrade projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the contractors that were hard working, a reward should be given or offered to be hired into the company.

    IT Departments

    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, AL (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, AL (US)

    I worked at Regions Financial full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Training - Depending which departments you work, your manager may or may not give you any chances for training. I had worked for 2 different groups and was always given opportunity to try out various training programs. The training classes were either in another city, in the same city or you will do the training class from home.

    Cons

    Communication - Being a very large organization, getting the information to pass to various IT departments caused a lot of headaches between various IT groups. If these various groups could learn to communicate and understand each other better, some things can be run more smoothly and less obstacles since as an organization we all have the same goals to make this company very profitable and make sure all of the employees are happy and content to work at this place.

    Regions Bank; Good bank, good company

    Current Employee - Risk Management in Birmingham, AL (US)

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

    Pros

    The bank, itself, is a great place to work. Admiral how senior management has turned the company around during the past 5 years. For employees, the bank provides excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, some departments are siloed and often certain employees experience discrimination, prejudice, and hostile work conditions if they don't meet the political mod. Its difficult to post out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide growth and development opportunities, employees enjoy learning and taking on more challenges. Also, provide regular and timely feedback.

    Excellent job security, but outdated technology and horrible communication

    Current Employee - Quantitative Analyst in Birmingham, AL (US)

    I have been working at Regions Financial full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent job security, decent corporate culture (most people are pretty friendly, and it isn't a dog eat dog culture), nice enough facilities

    Cons

    Very outdated systems, which are a headache for me as a data analyst. Loads of politics, although that's true at any bank. The absolute worst thing about Regions, though, is the siloed LOB structure of the company itself - the right hand never knows what the left hand is doing, so oftentimes they end up duplicating work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk! Communicate! We would be so much more efficient if we didn't duplicate each other's work unnecessarily.

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

    Pros

    I like working for the company. I have only had good experiences with the company. Nurturing environment, weekends and nights off, competitive pay.

    Cons

    There aren't many alternative paths for advancement in the company. The only way to advance is grow with in the branch (teller, banker, assistant manager, then branch manager.) I find it difficult to transfer into other areas of the company.
