    I have been working at Fulton Bank full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It seems like the company cares about the employees. Very good work life balance, I never find myself taking work or work issues home with me. All of the people I have met at this company are very nice.

    Cons

    Lower pay than other banks. Company seems to be behind the times, always playing catch up with new technology instead of being ahead of it.

    This bank is having an identity crisis and is behind the times

    I worked at Fulton Bank full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people are sincere want to do their very best - there is very little political garbage here. Intentions are good. They try hard, but with processes that built around smaller banks, it's hard to come up with a lot of pros...

    Cons

    This bank is having an identity crisis and wrestles with its history as a community bank, but it has a regional presence and big bank regulation! It's principles and mission need updating to reflect the changes but no one in senior management (PA) wants to change (and most of them have never worked at other banks). If you work outside of PA, then your local management will try to keep its own scorecard, while under the watchful eye of PA. The Regulators will have their way with this group. Eventually it will have to come into the 21st century with its strategies to keep pace with regulators and stiff competition. You will work hard and be frustrated with its limited technology, low pay, and cumbersome policies and procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider unifying the bank under one name, and one regulator. Consider re-branding without stick figures (looks very elementary and unprofessional).

    I worked at Fulton Bank as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    The coworkers are friendly and very helpful, and management was very understanding if I had a doctor's appointment or problem with my car trying to get to work. It was a great learning experience for me.

    Cons

    I worked in the mortgage department, so it was a high pressure environment which can be stressful for people. I didn't mind it too much though.

    I have been working at Fulton Bank full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good people to work with, flexibility, overall good people in the organization

    Cons

    Lack of proper leadership starting at the top of the organization and filtering down. Reactionary management vs pro-active and strategic thinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create your own path as opposed to reacting to the current environment. Have a big picture mentality and think more than a quarter down the road at a time.

    I worked at Fulton Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to move around (sometimes up) within the company, fun people, not high stress, better than average 401k and health benefits.

    Cons

    If you start at the minimum, you will never make more than the minimum. Do not come here and expect fair raises and promotions. Gain your experience elsewhere then come in and negotiate your pay based on your experience up front. Also, many of the jobs are so specific that the experience will not help you in your future endeavors unless you plan to stay in banking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Achievement based pay incentives will improve employee morale and weed out some of your complacent employees.

    I have been working at Fulton Bank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family environment. Great work/life balance. Failure isn't punished. But success isn't rewarded in a meaningful way. If you are looking to coast in a 9 to 5, this is the place to be. Ideally, if you're this type of person, you want to come to Fulton later in your career to get closer to a market salary.

    Cons

    If you're ambitious and young, this is not the place for you. Even if you exceed all of your goals and perform better than your older peers, you will never exceed their pay. Bonuses are a joke and you have to go to war at your reviews just to stay within $20k of a very fair market salary.

    Most of senior management are also life long employees. I guess that's the reward for sticking through 30 years of being underpaid. The problem with this is that they have a limited perspective and are not strategic thinkers. The result of this lack of leadership results in systems and processes that are inefficient and prohibitive to meeting goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire consultants to review everything you do.
