    I have been working at Fifth Third

    Pros

    From what I hear from employees that worked at other banks, Fifth Third offers quite a good benefit and compensation package and its definitely a great place to work.

    Cons

    I'm not a huge person on every task in my job being structured since I like to be creative in how I do it. However, that's not Fifth Third's fault at all.

    Pros

    Very extensive training, management is very down to earth and genuinely invested in your success.

    Cons

    You need to be a quick learner due to the fast paced environment, if you need things explained over and over, this is probably not the best job for you

    I have been working at Fifth Third full-time

    Pros

    As an FCM (branch manager) the benefits Fifth Third offers are very competitive with much larger banks. Salary is about the same as larger banks.

    Cons

    As they continue to outsource departments, close branches or convert them to "Banks of the future" staffing model continues to drop in brick and mortar. Building maintenance is not good at all. Takes forever for anything to get fixed, with very little expenditure on facility. Equipment and processes are outdated and extremely inefficient. Incentive plans become harder to achieve and payouts slowly declining. Most importantly, as they continue to cut staffing in branches, the manager gets to wear additional hats each year. Can be very overwhelming to complete all tasks, trackers, reports, forms etc. With all the busy work, it makes it nearly impossible to schedule daily time with team members, actually coaching them and helping them attain team goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the micromanaging tasks and offsite meetings, and outside business cold calling. Managers cannot be all and do all. Let us do what makes other banks successful, by having the FCM in the branch, actually focused only around coaching their team. You will see the results nearly immediately by removing all the paperwork, trackers, meetings, and unnecessary forms.
