    Pros

    ...next question. Do not apply for the contact center, very political.

    Cons

    Career development is based soley on who you connect with in the company, instead of raw talent and proven results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop your employees. Create a career development plan from the fisrt week of hire and document their success.

    Pros

    Senior management fosters a culture that is pervasive and positive. The company seems to truly care about the employees and employ several methods to ensure employee development and opportunity.

    Cons

    Competitive business decisions within the credit culture have somewhat of a hangover effect from the economic downturn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to normal risk levels

    Pros

    Regions, being a bank, has money, so they can afford to entice you with a fat chunk of cheddar. You'll be all excited, oh, this is the job I've been looking for, they can pay well and they talk about "work/life balance" so maybe I finally have arrived. Unfortunately this is a company of the most entitled people you will ever meet in your life. The goal at Regions is TRY TO GET SOMEONE ELSE TO DO IT.

    Cons

    Regions has no problem breaking laws asking its employees to work on their own time and travel uncompensated. If you work in IT, good luck.

    The company treats its IT department like its own personal whipping boy when they want to vent. You are the defacto complaint line for the entire company. People will call you because they are too lazy to read emails, messages, alerts, warnings, or to do the simplest of web searches. They will call you because they don't want to follow the rules that everyone in the company has to deal with. They will tell you how important they are and hence why you should move mountains for them even though they called 5 minutes before a meeting.

    If you need help with something, don't hold your breath. Most of the people above you have spent their careers with the company learning how to avoid responsibility or having to talk to other human beings. They will pretend you don't exist. They will tell you flat out to "go away". They are the worst of the worst.

    The phone queue system is a joke. The veterans know how to abuse the system and will spend their day skipping phone calls which you will end up taking. Those employes who are the favorites of the micro-managing horrible attitude supervisors will get away with everything. Picture the worst manager you ever had in that high school retail job, now triple that and you're about halfway to the way these people treat their staff. Hope you like having the minutes counted that you're taking a pee, because they will.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually adhere to the crap you peddle. "Work / Life Balance"? Yeah right! It's hard to have your own life when you spend the rest of the day you aren't at work stressing out because you're going to have to go back. Why don't you hire supervisors who actually know things and can speak to people like HUMAN BEINGS instead of just slavedrivers whose job it is to make sure no one spends a second getting paid that they might not be fixing something or doing busywork.

    Pros

    Training is within banking standard and systems are user friendly. Company has great core values. Good Benefit package! Advancement is available and internal candidates are given first consideration.

    Cons

    Coaching is in effective. Expectations are not ever clearly conveyed and can change at a moments notice. Leadership does not always have the ability to make a decision when needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to take every decision and evaluate individually and base outcome on past actual performance.
