    Good Place to Start

    Credit Analyst (Current Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsManagement is very supportive of responding to staff needs and making changes when needed. Benefits are comparable with similar employers. The environment is very laid back and employees seem to maintain positive attitudes.

    ConsIt can be challenging to move into another area of the bank, little opportunity to network within the bank. It's difficult to grow a career here if your department does not have a built-in track. There does not seem to be much of a focus of growing employees within the company, and it feels your best opportunity for growing your career is to explore options at other companies.

    Loved Work, Room for improvement with company

    Retail Licensed Personal Banker(I) (Current Employee) Petoskey, MI

    ProsLoved the job, customers, learned a lot, miss many of my old co workers.

    ConsComputer systems are outdated. Too much room for human error. Banks shouldnt have trouble with things like missing deposits these days. Direct managers were great, but communication between upper and lower management was not good.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake expectations clear to employees. Spend some money upgrading your software.

    Overall, it was a good experience working for the investment and insurance division.

    Financial Advisor (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsUnlike the big banks and some regional banks, there is more autonomy and investment options to provide clients. The management was knowledgeable and supportive of the financial advisor.

    ConsAs with all banks, there is an expectation that an advisor will recommend their clients to add-on other bank products and services. The push can turn off clients but 5/3 is not as guilty of this as other banks that measure this activity daily.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to take care of the client in front of you, which is your employee(s). Coach them up, lead by example and take interest in them personally. In return, they will take care of the bank's clients and then the revenue will follow.
