    I worked at Fifth Third (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative and team work in most areas. Highly political and no opportunity for job growth. Good compensation for senior leadership.

    Cons

    Politics and poor senior leadership. Lack of visibility into direction of company and too many attitudes. Lack of understanding by leadership on what is really going on in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and empower your managers. The Gallup survey is a joke because either everyone gives fives or else. Talent review is pointless and being asked to stack rank went away in the 80's.

    Pros

    Unable to identify at this time

    Cons

    Outdated hardware, software, methodologies, management

    Advice to Management

    Here are my observations on 5/3 Bank IT: The individuals in the IT dept. don't realize they work in an an IT dept. The software is 30 yrs. outdated, as is the hardware & the managers. There is no 'let's get this done' mentality, much less than 'get it done with technology'. The don't upgrade their legacy systems & as such they are cumbersome, poorly designed & frustrating to work with. At the end of the day there is no job satisfaction. Additionally all the IT managers have been there so long they reinforce this outdated methodology. The managers are rewarded handsomely & thus don't leave to advance their knowledge or careers. Those under them mosey along or leave, but despite the banks efforts for inclusion there is a definite feeling of 'those vs us'. Additionally, the shop is very much outsourced with a high percentage of offshore & onshore from the subcontinent. The bank has announced plans to upgrade floor plans & work stations but without innovative software or fresh management it will be an exercise in futility with much money spent. A young person interviewing with this company would be wise to interview elsewhere.

    Pros

    Great people and a good work life balance.

    Cons

    For each of my 10 years I became more and more stunned by how unethical the management team is.

    Advice to Management

    Get a lawyer. You'll need one one day.

    Pros

    I loved the location on Fountain Square downtown Cincinnati. It was close enough to my house to commute to easily.

    Cons

    Now that I've been at other companies recently I can see what a dump it was. They are stingy. Don't expect a nice, clean, contemporary office or desk. They don't pay for parking. I can also see now how they rarely upgraded their equipment or software. We ran on the oldest software available. UPGRADE!

    Advice to Management

    When you move a manager into a new role and they aren't familiar at all with what that group does, I think that' s a horrible choice. Hire managers based on integrity and not how well they hobknob. Don't reward managers who are basically dummies, don't like to read, create a million emails for useless conversations .

    Pros

    Lots of available jobs in Cincinnati.

    Cons

    A true FOLLOWER in the banking game. Complete lack of innovation. Even the name is so corny I was embarrassed to tell people where I worked! Got out of there as quick as I could!

    I worked at Fifth Third full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has great written vision, mission statement, and is very involved within the community. A lot of employment opportunities due to turnover within departments.

    Cons

    It depends on the company's management style of leading the team that determines the outcome of the department's cultural. If you have a great manager/leadership team, consider yourself very lucky! Raises are a joke and a lot of layoffs or cutbacks.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees as much as you value the bottom line, quality, and quantity within your department. Establish within the organization a system that protects employees from passive aggressive behaviors, such as workplace bullying.

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

    Pros

    They pay kind of well but other than that, nothing much is good, the management is pretty cool but they all seem fake

    Cons

    Everything is outdated, the Ace system is soooooooo old school, they don't have to many products, and they operate as of there a national bank like Wells Fargo, and they require there customers to have a 680 credit score to get a credit card, wouldn't recommend

    Advice to Management

    Update ACE to be more user friendly and up to date, and please fix the IVR system, it sucks so bad
