I worked at Fifth Third full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

There are many opportunities available at Fifth Third if you know the right people. They have some of the best free learning and development programs I've ever seen in a company, and they're open to nearly every employee.

Cons

Fitting in is key, and this company doesn't make it easy for minorities. If you don't fit in, you don't advance. There's only so much a person can sacrifice without getting lost in the process. Also, the benefits are average (401k with 4% match).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If management is truly committed to diversity, hire diverse recruiters for goodness sake. Don't talk about it, be about it.

    I have been working at Fifth Third full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Incredible exposure to Senior Leadership
    - Collaborative culture promotes individual success
    - Healthy work / life balance (in most areas of the Bank)

    Cons

    - No glaring cons, however, the Bank is currently undergoing many transformations that make it difficult to define one's role/projected career path

    Okay for a first banking job but very few opportunites to advance and low hours.

    I have been working at Fifth Third part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Willing to hire in with little expierence.
    Benifits for PT employees.
    Willing to hand out more responsibilities.
    Compensation for reaching goals.
    Competitave pay with yearly raises based on performance.

    Cons

    Referral Goals have become rediculous. What qualifies as a referral has changed as well as the type of accounts making it very hard to convience people to open accounts.
    Payouts for success have gone down.
    Cuts have been made across the board with management and tellers. This has caused a staffing shortage and PT tellers are now kept to 20 hours with high traffic and low employees causing long lines and high stress.
    Company just overhauled all their personal accounts and are about to do business accounts as well. There is very little information and preparation for the employees, lots of uncertanity, and the bank has now made it difficult for customers to bank there.
    I wouldn't bank there if I wasn't an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your customers as people not just numbers and have accounts to fit their needs not every customer every time needs a product or service thrown at them.
    Make opportunities avaliable for advancement into different areas based on strengths.
    Make point goals realistic instead of raising them each year especially with the number of households going down from deposit simplification.
