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

    Pros

    The company really takes care of you. They are constantly making sure things are running smoothly and asking for employee input on how to make things even better.

    Cons

    Can't say I faced any real negatives while working at this job the whole year I was employed.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say but thank you for helping me grow and really asking and paying attention to what I wanted from the job.

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers, good training and opportunities to grow your career. I felt I had the support of everyone within the organization while I was there.

    Cons

    The bank was in the process of trying to standardize EVERYTHING at the bank. It left very little room to personalize the interaction between the bankers and the customers. Admittedly, I wasn't cut out for banking.


  3. Different. Can be stressful at times.

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers that provide plenty of support, and are willing to go the extra mile. You are able to build long term friendships here.

    Cons

    Human Resources makes changes without feedback from supervisors, very uncommunicative. You never know which way they are heading, or if you will have a position the next day. Job was eliminated, and very little support provided to remain with company.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with several of the managers when I first started at Fift Third. But within a year, they had all left or were fired.

    Cons

    Highly political with a lot of back stabbing. Slow to adopt new technology - very cheap. Several people I worked with deliberately sabotaged projects.
