    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Get off your chair and help your employees

    Pros

    Really good growth opportunity to gain new customers since customers are unhappy with the dominate banks, Sincere genuine employees who care about the relationships they establish.

    Cons

    offices are run with minimal people and there are so many openings that current people are getting burned out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the leader that runs the Tampa branches is very negative and sarcastic creates controversy and shows favoritism

    I worked at Fifth Third

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Constant 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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen 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.

    I worked at Fifth Third

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sr. 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?

    I worked at Fifth Third

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Upper 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 ManagementAdvice

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