    Maybe a morale day once a quarter or something? Or even a half day.

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

    Pros

    Great structure
    Great training
    Great networking ability
    Great locations
    Energetic and focused team members

    Cons

    At mercy of the immediate manager, whom is just chasing her/his numbers to leverage their next move. Not fair at all to a career bankers or academic track employees. Upper management is oblivious, due to the chain of command structure.

    Advice to Management

    Consider auditing manager practices independently, rather than asking the to submit their reviews

    Pros

    You can really change someone's life. Great benefits and retirement package. Good coaching and management. Good chance at a promotion from within.

    Cons

    Short staffing always seems like an issue. With the banking industry changing as technology gets better, they tend to hire less bodies for the branches.

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

    Pros

    During my nearly 4 years as an IE with Fifth Third Investments, I truly enjoyed the team and the bank culture. Since my departure, there have been substantial changes due to the pending Dept of Labor ruling. The program is likely much different than I recall, but I'm confident that the team in Louisville is still a great team of hard working and caring people.

    Cons

    Not a real "con", just a piece of advise to a potential employee for the investment side: Always remember that you're a guest in the branch's house. If you look after the best interest of your branch team, your chances for strong referrals and success are much greater. Do what's right for the customer and everything else will fall into place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being supportive and open to the needs of the IE. The demands of the DOL ruling will change the way they do business. You're a great team. The IE's may be feeling like they're on an island right now. They're feeling the pressures from management, DOL, compliance, the branches, and their wallets. Let em know they're loved and you have their back. All of the regulatory changes since 2001 are aimed at one thing---cutting out the unethical reps from the industry. You have a great group, highly ethical, and strong character. if business isn't where you want it to be, seek their ideas on how to get there before assuming they don't care.

    Training programs are the best in the industry
    Highest base pay in banking industry
    Promote talent from within and they cultivate your strengths to help you succeed, outstanding one on one training with upper management.
    Outstanding 401k

    Cons

    Branches are working with less & less staff which creates stressful atmosphere all around, customers seeing the short staffing model and very unhappy with the changes.
    Compensation for meeting/exceeding goals is not what they made it seem in initial interviews. Company cutting staffing/incentives/benefits/health insurance benefits very expensive. Not a healthy work/life balance with all the added stress
