    ProsThere isn't any good reasons to work here, bank here, have your mortgage here. They treat their employees terrible and have no regards for work life balance. You are just a number to them and they do not train you properly for any job.

    ConsNo training, terrible ethics, they make shady loans, and have terrible organizational leaders. Very poorly ran company. Management is a mess all the way to the top!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet off your chair and help your employees

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Awful, antagonistic, clueless management (in Tampa anyway.)

    Financial Center Manager (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsDecent compensation. Decent benefits. Decent locations. Computer system is bettter than at many other banks. Training is pretty good and thorough.

    ConsConstant micro-management at every level. Very political. Always play favorites, even when the favorites performance does not warrant it. No work/life balance at all. Very short staffed. Goals change all the time, even in the middle of the month. Reviews are inconsistent. Very hard to work with HR on any disciplinary issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees. They might actually have some good advice instead of ruling from the ivory tower in Cincinnati. Too out of touch with the affiliates.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    So-so

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsI liked working there because of the sr. leaders. They were caring about employees personal live, but especially top performers.

    ConsThe general climate of the banking industry is very down and fifth third bank has not differentiated itself from any competitors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSr. Managers need to ask themselves, what makes fifth third different from any other bank in Tampa. It's got some local decision making ability, but what else?

    DON'T BOTHER

    Personal Banker (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsNewer offices, great staff at the branch levels, very nice people in the training department, awesome ceo at the affiliate level.

    ConsUpper management is ridiculous (particularily the regional managers). My former regional thought excel spreadsheets and conference calls were more important than sales and results.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of most of the regionals. Promote from within instead of hiring other banks' rejects all the time. Get more modern.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
