    Good work environment. Decent pay
    moving up us difficult unless you're a sales machine freak of nature.

    Cons

    False promises.
    growth factor is hard unless you're a gorgeous woman or allow yourself to be promoted without a pay increase.

    I worked at Regions Financial

    Pros

    Mostly Monday thru Friday. Better before Amsouth merger.

    Cons

    Had to work Saturday, leadership sucks, no perks, office culture is terrible. I had the worst boss in the history of bosses. She was a bitter woman and tried her best to make our lives miserable. She was negative and loved to put people down. Working with her was the worst year and a half of my life. The bank was so much better to work for before the merger with Amsouth. We took on AmSouth's policies and procedures. I felt like their motto was, "how many different ways can we say no"? It was easy to get promoted provided you did you job, however the promotional raise is only 2%. What kind of bs is that You work you butt off and already make lower than any bank around and you only get 2% raise?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier for the employees to do their jobs. It is a very negative environment.
