    I worked at Fifth Third full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Sales training, Management Experience, Benefits, Co-Workers, Clients

    Cons

    Disengaged workforce, executives are all about themselves verses their employees, diversity is non-existent in officer level roles, salaries are not paid out equally to men and women in the same roles. Men make over 2x as much in many cases... More than that in some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider Unconscious Bias Training, Review male vs female Salaries before the Dept of Labor does it for you, review minority / female hiring practices in officer level sales roles. Review subjective officer and position promotion guidelines, white males are highly favored over minority and female employees.

    Pros

    Good overall compensation packages for experienced hires.
    If you're good at what you do, you will have a lot of growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Don't have all the resources necessary to complete large projects in an efficient manner.
    10% of the people do 90% of the work.

    Benefits should be better.

    I have been working at Fifth Third

    Pros

    The environment is pretty laid back and fun at times. They work well with scheduling when you have doctor appointments or have to get your children.

    Cons

    They constantly understaff bringing stress to everyone. Turnover is very high. Job titles and roles are consistently changing or being eliminated. I don't see enough diversity among upper management. Moving up from a CSR position is harder when you are lower on the diversity scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please staff branches accordingly instead of trying to save a dollar. It just makes the workers stressed out. Promote more within the company instead of seeking outside sourcrs

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, nice bonus.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Politics are poisonously thick. Management clearly threatened by underlings who know more than them. Outdated technologies. People promoted in to management based off how long they have been there, and not on actual abilities to do the job well. Many employees not given recognition they deserve. People taking credit for other people's work. Major lack of role clarity. Good ole boys vibe. It's a very toxic place, depending on your department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop moving/promoting employees in to managerial positions that they are unqualified for. It creates an environment of confusion for non-managers, who end up fighting with each other, because of lack of managerial direction.
