    Pleasant people to work with, great work life balance.

    Behind on technology and seem uncomfortable with the idea of international clientele. There is little opportunity for advancement. Forget about a raise...

    I worked at Fifth Third (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule.

    Cons

    poor training. Out dated and old systems to approve loans. Slow process with to many hands in the pot to get things done efficiently

    Advice to Management

    better training. put together an easier process from start to finish. Had multiple issues with closings because 5/3 uses an off shore closing team to generate documents. Which made finalizing the closing very difficult. Had to reschedule closings multiple times.

    Pros

    Great benefits and some great people here. I enjoyed just about everyone I came into contact with.

    Cons

    If you aren't made of money, they definitely discriminate against you. I've seen my manager do some pretty horrible stuff and act downright rude to customers just because they didn't have money or were on the "wrong side of town".

    Advice to Management

    Look out for the little guys. I understand you're a big corp but you need them too.

    Pros

    Fifth Third Bank customers are really nice.

    Cons

    No respect, goals so high you can't reach them no matter what you do, so you don't get commission ever. Upper management doesn't care about employees, you are just a number.

    Good pay and good benefits. The learning and training is great. Traditional dynamic of a bank with tellers and bankers.

    The products and outdated equipment make it difficult to bank and work there. Some managers need more training and should go through a more rigorous hiring process

    Invest in updating equipment furniture
