    I worked at Fifth Third full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training program. They really helped me develop as a salesperson. There was a real sense of family where I work. They worked to foster a collaborative culture and their systems were easy to use. If there would have been a place for me to promote to locally I would still work here.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover/short staffing issues lead to employee burnout, some bankers bonus payouts were cut back unfairly

    Advice to Management

    Beef up incentive program, work to pay existing employees better as they promote - it's cheaper to promote than train new folks.

    Pros

    Job growth for those willing to put in the time.

    Cons

    Annual raises are minimal for existing employees; if you are hired from outside of the company, you have a better opportunity to have a better base salary.

    I worked at Fifth Third full-time

    Pros

    The customers over all were great. My upper management at the bank were great too.

    Cons

    Hard to move up, unless you want to become a personal banker. Many of the employees do not do their job and are on their cell phones.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce dress code, create a growth plan for employees who do not want to become a personal banker.

    I worked at Fifth Third full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in the Madisonville Office in IT. Great benefits. Plenty of time off. Upper management are strategic thinkers. Great in-house designers, developers, and testers. Some business partners were open minded and trusted internal recommendations.

    Cons

    Limited office space and slow to upgrade hardware. Ran 99.9% on Microsoft and getting new software approval required months approvals. Mostly partnered with offshore development firms instead of domestic development talent.

    Advice to Management

    Get some Macs and know how to support them. Reevaluate salary range for job titles.
