    I worked at Fifth Third full-time

    Pros

    As a manager, great opportunities to affect others' development and engage yourself for future growth; benefits were top of the line

    Cons

    Work-life balance was not really a priority and senior management needs to put some faith in middle management to allow them to do what they were hired for

    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

    Great 401k match, better hours than many banks, policies not nearly as stringent as other banks

    Cons

    Training program not the best, although new training program seems to be much better. Technology is a little behind the Times,

    Keep communication lines open to find out what is really happening in banking centers.

    I worked at Fifth Third full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked for the greatest managers and learned many things. I worked hard and was rewarded for my accomplishments. I appreciated the use of the Engagement team.

    Cons

    I had to resign, because of relocating. When working on the overnight shift, sometimes holidays were missed with family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I encourage the incentive programs and the engagement teams, The engagement team is a great idea, because it is a liaison between management and the employees.

    Unrealistic expectations from managers. Bonus structure demotivating

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give managers more employees. Don't expect them to be a business banker, coach and Assistant Manager. Learn from turnover! Wake up 5/3!

    Pros

    Upper management is involved and cares about the health of your financial center. There is lots of room to move up into the position you want. Management is willing to coach and develop you to become the best you can be.

    Cons

    High turnover. The job can get very stressful in regards to meeting goals which leads to some bankers switching jobs or banks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay involved with your affiliates financial centers.
