    Pros

    Upper management is involved and cares about the health of your financial center. There is lots of room to move up into the position you want. Management is willing to coach and develop you to become the best you can be.

    Cons

    High turnover. The job can get very stressful in regards to meeting goals which leads to some bankers switching jobs or banks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay involved with your affiliates financial centers.

    I have been working at Fifth Third as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a nice work environment where everybody got along very well. Very easy process to pick up on.

    Cons

    The leadership played more of a managerial role than an actual leadership role. I had to pick up most of the information on my own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please ensure that the management is looking to enhance the experience for all workers. I was not happy with the management I experienced mainly due to the fact that they were distant.

    Pros

    Great products and services to sale, nice ESOP and 401k plans, competitive salary, reasonable sales goals with bonus plan.

    Cons

    can be very competitive to the point of being cut throat with some team mates, meetings for meeting sake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the employee surveys are quite interesting, you should really take a longer look at the negative responses, most will give a glowing report because it is easier to complete. the real answers you are looking for are in the longer comment section.
