I worked at Fifth Third full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Really great place to learn. Lots of opportunities to move up as employee retention is extremely low.

Cons

In Northern Michigan the average branch manager last two years. During my three years spent as branch manager, there were not any branches in the Traverse City area to keep the same manager on average most had three different managers. If you can adapt to micro-managing and feeling as your supervisor does not trust you, this is the right company for you.

Advice to Management

Do something about problems, rather than just move them around. Recognize trends and deal with them. I truly believe Fifth Third is a great company to work for, but the experience I had, I would not suggest any hire in the retail area of Northern Michigan
