    I have been working at Fifth Third full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Its a friendly tight community with room for advancement. Like the Mortgage industry anywhere, there is minimal training or leadership. The brand name brings in allot of business and there are allot of repeat customers.

    Cons

    The technology is decade old patchwork, the company is always looking for a way to trim income and more and more of the internal bank jobs are performed in India by off shore partners. If your not management your disposable and they are looking for a way to replace you with some one off shore. Its a commission job so vacations and time off are at your own expense. When the economy went flat they removed a whole wrung of employee and expect every one else to pick up the slack. There is no real accountability because no one in management wants it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your front line people the tools and support to take care of your customers, put the customers ahead of the process. Pay a living wage to employee's in this country that can also be customers.

    Pros

    Hard working people, great flexibility in certain positions. Good environment, enjoyable work. Felt committed to the job and serving the customers.

    Cons

    Staff was lean, one person does work that should be divided by many. Industry changes constantly which can be unsettling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make employees feel secure and acknowledge the hard work they do

    If companies like Costco pay 11.50 an hour to stock shelves then a teller should make at least $12 an hour.

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

    Pros

    Salary, vacation and sick time as well as work-life balance are the best things about working there. Every affiliate is different so if you end up in the wrong one, you will be miserable every day you enter the door.

    Cons

    Dealing with office politics can be draining in any environment and make facing every week day morning a daunting task. Be prepared to on-board yourself if you are in a professional sales role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Genuinely good people enjoy working in encouraging, strategic and positive environments with other good people.

    Pros

    The people that work at Fifth Third are great. Work-life balance around 40hrs/week and fairly flexible. Job very consistent and did not change very often. Invested a lot into you as an employee training wise. Good health benefits.

    Cons

    Staff was not recognized for their hard work - criticized on negative rather than focusing on positives. A lot of inefficiencies in the company's processes, which would save time and money. Politics and cattiness with managers was horrible to deal with every day. If you were not on someones good side, you most likely would be portrayed negatively among the division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get feedback from the staff and associates. They are the one doing the work and would like to be listened to.
