    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.

  2. Regions was your prototypical Commercial bank with a mortgage division

    Pros

    The local bank leadership was mostly great people. The culture is very employee friendly. The various lines of business do attempt to work together.

    Cons

    The mortgage division is very weak. The rates are not competitive and the service from operations was by far the worst in my 14 years in the business.

    Advice to Management

    I really do not think upper management wants volume based growth. The compensation plan for loan officers is weak and turn over is very high. My advice would be to re - engineer the way you do business if you ever really want to grow.

  3. Ok to work for, but you better follow all the HR rules. HR/Training comes before everything. Including customer service

    Pros

    Stable company, Ok with salaries.

    Cons

    Despite what they say, training and HR events are more important than your daily job or customer support.

    Pros

    If you are on the right team, the sky is the limit. Great CSM's, managers, and leadership in Central Florida.

    Cons

    Staffing can be a struggle at times, but the industry is changing to a smaller scale on staff with the use of technology.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly add back a little staff but other than that...keep on keeping on.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is pretty good! Plenty of vacation and sick time. Business casual dress style.

    Cons

    Very hard to move around in the company unless your manager likes you.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Close to home.
    Most co-workers were great.
    Coworkers would help anyone make their goals by the end of the month if you were lacking.

    Cons

    Do not work with school schedules, even after getting approval from management, but because higher up didn't agree with it, they will fire you, but make it seem as if you resigned.
    Almost like a hoity-toity "i'm better than you" attitude from co-workers.
    Pushy sales goals for those who are not salespeople, but try all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Lay off the sales goals. Treat your employees like people. Don't lie to or trick lower employees into something they don't know what they're doing to save your butts.

    Pros

    Hourly Pay, work-life balance, bankers hours

    Cons

    Mangement is horrible. Branch Managers have been there for years and are just sitting around not progressing. No advancement in the company because branch managers are comfortable in their positions for 15+ years. When a rare advancement opportunity does arise, they play games with you. They only advance people who been with the company for years because it's only fair. You will be told you have to do you time. Vacation policy is the worst. You only get two weeks. You also get sick time but it's use or lose. Incentive plan is a joke. You look your tail off to barley get a bonus.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to grow your company, get rid of your management whose doing nothing for your markets but sitting in their offices for the past 15yrs. You have driven employees right at your fingertips that could be growing your markets. Instead you want to be happy go lucky and be everyone's friend and not hurt feelings. That's why you are not a big bank yet.

    Pros

    You can meet a lot great people customer wise!

    Cons

    There is way to much GOSSIP in upper management

    Upper management only promotes people who are there friends

    You will rarely get a descent raise

    You will constantly be short staffed and will NEVER get a lunch break, plus you'll have to work every single weekend while your manager doesn't work any.

    You will constantly get all these things added to your work load and no pay increase.

    It's very sales pushed so if your more about doing what's right for the customer don't work here.

    If you report anything to HR it won't be confidential and whoever you reported especially if it's management you will be given a very hard time and your days are numbered.

    Advice to Management

    Treart your employee's well and maybe the turn over rate would decrease.
    Pay people a descent salary for all the stuff we do
