I have been working at Fifth Third full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great place to launch an entry level career
Great benefits
Organized
Career objectives are clearly stated and will be emphaticed if you fail to reach your performance measurements.
If you live in CINCY, OH you will have career growth opportunties, if you live in another market don't expect to retire from ths company!!

Cons

Expect to work 6 days a week if your in retail at a minimum of twice a month
Not much growth in retail
Management does not encourage Persoal Bankers to get licensed.
Sales is a primary focus, if your not living and breathing the company culture, your going to see like the TITANIC!
No diversity in management/leadership roles,really people? This is 2012!
If your MANAGER isn't good, you will more than likely fail!
Comnpany does not allow much movement in retail environment.

Advice to Management

Encourage true growth within retail environment
Allow for sales goals to be adjusted *reduced) if vacation time is taken during sales period.
Due to the economy their should only be 1 PB per banking center, so that coworkers are not competing to stay afloat with outrageous sales goals.
Publicy displayed recogition or award ceremony for top five sales champions!
This position is tough for any normal human in this economic climate
Stop depening on personal banker to act as managers often and keep them in entry level pay...how dare you!
