    I have been working at Fifth Third full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Provided the ability to drive projects and create a working environment that allows you to perform at your best.

    Cons

    Training and development is the sole responsibility of the individual. The finance organization do not offer any formal or continuous training.

    Management is only concern with meeting revenue expectations. No focus on employee engagement.

    Advice to Management

    Great opportunity to get your feet wet, but I wouldn't consider this career opportunity long term.

    Pros

    Great place to work! Great team, supportive environment, pleasant people to work with. Senior level managers and directors are interested in your point of view and keen to know how to improve the business. Good balance between corporate and fun culture. Pay is more than average pay in Cincinnati. + bonus and benefits are great. One of the best buildings in downtown cincinnati with a great location. It is right by fountain square so there is always buzz around!

    Cons

    Too many meetings to attend. Depending on which team you work for, work load would vary. Can't think of any cons other than these. It is one of the best places to work in Cincinnati!

    Advice to Management

    have more cross dept activities

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

    Pros

    -Good work/life balance, especially for a large corporation
    -Great pay, benefits are pretty good
    -Laid back working environment
    -Exposure to upper level management, good opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    I really don't have any. I've been here for 6 months and really have yet to find any cons. Would be nice if there was a cafeteria/gym in the corporate office in downtown. Paid parking would be nice as it can get expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing. Management is personable and flexible, at least in my department, and it creates a healthy work environment. I really enjoy working for 5/3.

    Pros

    -Good benefits
    -Good 401k match
    -Team members I work with were all nice, conscientious, and cared for one another

    Cons

    Regarding working in corporate in Cincinnati: if you did not go to the right high school and/or one of 5/3's 7 chosen colleges, you will have a difficult time moving up. This type of nepotism is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Open your horizons, hire/promote people who make the bank better instead of telling you what you want to hear

    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

    The benefits were top notch. They had a very thorough training program to acclimate you to the banking world.

    Cons

    The schedule could be very bad if assigned to a Bankmart. Weekends and nights were very common.
