    Pros

    It's a company one should be proud to represent. Banks today aren't as personable and helpful as we are. Fifth Third offers exceptional benefits for Americans who want to grow there families in knowledge and wisdom. It's amazing to work in a career field where integrity, honesty, and truth are acclaimed in a positive way. Getting to the root of customer issues while answering financial questions with care, direction and education is a vital part of our goal. Care and concern, along with knowledge given makes the company a great place to be.

    Cons

    Need a new building. I don't see anything wrong with this company, but I'm the kind of person that looks at the benefits. They tend to outweigh anything else.

    Advice to Management

    Dig deeper and acknowledge the talent that you have already acquired. There are employees that believe in this bank, and it's amazing customers.

    Pros

    Work Ethnic as well as the people. It is fun to be in an environment were most of your co-workers care about there own work and are willing to help you with things you may not understand. The banking industry is hard to cope especially now with the economic downturns that we are facing.

    Cons

    Just working for a bank right now is the downside. I dont think it has anything to do with Fifth Third directly, its more of the economic placing the blame on banks big and small regardless of there involvement with some of the shady deals done in wall street.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going on strong as we are a very strong and sound bank. Dont sell fifth third to any one. We are worth alot more than you may know and making a quick buck to merge with another bank / equity firm isnt the answer

    Pros

    Co-workers are like family, everyone is very close. Management is very supportive and do their best to help you succeed.

    Cons

    The only downside I can think of is that Fifth Third does not have some of the technology that other major banks have now.

    Advice to Management

    Become more competitive with technological advancements and be a little less conservative with interest rates because it is making younger customers go elsewhere.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits. And I'm not just talk medical and dental. Real benefits like 4% 401k match, profit sharing and stock purchase match. Plus all employees receive a 4% increase on their 30th day of employment to help offset any out of pocket expenses. Its paid just as extra cash income, so you get it even if you dont use any of the benefits! They also take employee engagement very seriously. Its a conservative company, but also fun! I think they are pretty strict with their recruiting and the people they hire. You really have to be an 'A' player to get hired here!

    Cons

    Very conservative. Most employees have to wear suit/tie everyday.

    Pros

    Professional yet fun environment Largely involved with the community Employees are understanding of one another Small bank personality with Big bank products to offer

    Cons

    The bank is rather conservative on their spending; not necessarily a con, more so an adjustment Fear of growing too large and becoming more like other big banks

    Advice to Management

    Focus on growth from within-everyone has talents that should be utilized to their best for both the company and the employee

    Pros

    You can advance at this company if you are good at what you do and meet your goals. Company is growing. Employees who care about each other Great benefits Excellent training and learning department

    Cons

    Sales goals can be very aggressive Sometimes there is a lot of red tape to clear to get your ideas for improvement implemented (but this seems to happen in many corporate cultures)

    Advice to Management

    Invest more money in technology

    Pros

    nice benefits competent co-workers reward for hard work incentive for sales on all levels paid vacation truly a nice place to work

    Cons

    "bankers hours" is an old term and not applicable to this position! can be demanding but there is support from co-workers

    Advice to Management

    System updates and computer updates would really be beneficial to make Fifth Third more competitive and employees more efficient.
