    Pros

    Job growth for those willing to put in the time.

    Cons

    Annual raises are minimal for existing employees; if you are hired from outside of the company, you have a better opportunity to have a better base salary.

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Especially if you are trying to live in the Cincinnati area. Lots of growth potential within the company.

    Cons

    Salary seems to be mid ranged compared to other places. The senior level positions are probably the more competitive.

    I worked at Fifth Third (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is a good Midwest company looking to take over some market share and there were definitely some encouraging employees

    Cons

    Although some employees were encouraging there were others that simply follow whatever corporate says and didn't try going to bat for you. Advancing and transfers were a challenge and ultimately the reason I left

    Advice to Management

    Corporate isn't always right and sometimes the status quo needs to be challenged. Just as you want to grow and develop, so do others. With challenging something and striving to change things become stagnant
