    I have been working at Fifth Third full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are good, although increasingly more expensive. There are some great people who work here. Sadly they are far and few between.

    Cons

    Counter productive work environment in a cube farm with obnoxiously loud coworkers. This includes managers with VP titles. Very few advancement opportunities. Pay is below average.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis on the core value of respect. Real employee engagement.

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

    Pros

    The overall company goals and vision are very strong and will continue to lead it in the regional market. The company has a good focus on the customer and much of the Branch Operations and general consumer lending is strong.

    Cons

    The Mortgage company side of the bank leaves a lot to be desired. In the last several years there have been a high number of Senior Manager changes with each identifying new agendas and changes they wish to implement. In the last year specifically it feels like the emphasis on their employees has gone away.

    Advice to Management

    The high change over in the direction by the Senior managers has made the environment very disengaging often resulting in higher turn over. Most truly enjoy their direct manager but outside of that specific contact there is very little trust in much of the requests and changes being made.

    I have been working at Fifth Third full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility and tuition reimbursement, ability to purchase additional vacation time.

    Cons

    Typical corporate bureaucracy, smooth talkers get promoted ahead of hard workers.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the little people. They see more than you think and know what is working and what isn't.

    I have been working at Fifth Third part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent experience in dealing with customers and getting acquainted with the retail side of banking
    Great benefits and numerous opportunities for internal hiring

    Cons

    Pay for a CSR/Teller is rather low.
    Some branches/bankmarts will be absolutely busy or very empty
    Manager will either make or break your experience: I've had one that took advantage of my schedule and didn't seek to help me when I first started, and another that was there for me and my fellow workers and kept the bank's core values

    Advice to Management

    Always look out for the new recruits, make sure they are adapting to their new environment well, and always aim for their professional development. Never take advantage of anyone

    Pros

    Fifth third takes care of its employees like no other company, everyday you are surrounded by professionals who care about your personal development.

    Cons

    Its a retail job and a sales job, if sales intimidate you, or if working with customers in a retail position all day bothers you, you probably won't enjoy this job.

    Pros

    The benefits and the people are outstanding, the latter depending on where you work. The company seems to be embracing change, especially recently. The leadership has been churning in a net positive way.

    Cons

    The pace of changing entrenched, maladaptive organizational habits is too slow. These habits often empower poor managers at the expense of talented employees. Those who prioritize sound bites over substance can thrive and advance, which is troubling.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to become more diverse, especially in the middle and upper job tiers. In addition, create better career paths for individual contributors who can bring much needed subject matter expertise closer to the problems that need to be addressed.
