Benefits and Perks
Only half of employees enjoy paid vacation days and paid sick time — a rather disappointing finding. Quite a few retirement plans are on offer at Regions Financial Corporation, including a 401(k) plan and a company pension plan. Most employees report having health insurance, and a large number of survey participants report having dental coverage. Advantages of working here also include life insurance, tuition reimbursement, and a subsidized cell phone.
