    I have been working at Fifth Third full-time

    Pros

    Being with Fifth Third, I have realized how they are passionate about investing into their employees and operationaly excellence.

    Cons

    The only thing I would say, is to look at the Big Picture. When you look at the Big picture you will be able to see more.

    It is confusing to become accustomed to what your duties are and what you should be focused on, due to all of the drastic change constantly surrounding this company.

    Pros

    Large organization with many local opportunities. The company has some talented people, and some are rewarded for their contributions.

    Cons

    Management is running the organization too lean for sustainable success. Many systems need updated, and 5 jobs for every 3 people has some truth to it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be pennywise and pound foolish.

    I worked at Fifth Third full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary, but incentive comp is a joke. Some good people.

    Cons

    Bad upper management: Tenure is the only thing that matters. You can be a complete idiot, but if you've been at Fifth Third for a while, you get moved up over more qualified individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You know who the good employees are. Pay for them for what they're worth, or say goodbye.

    Pros

    Loved the job, customers, learned a lot, miss many of my old co workers.

    Cons

    Computer systems are outdated. Too much room for human error. Banks shouldnt have trouble with things like missing deposits these days. Direct managers were great, but communication between upper and lower management was not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make expectations clear to employees. Spend some money upgrading your software.
