    Pros

    Great 401k plan, pay not so much. Pay is ok considering conditions and you could have great balance if management allows it

    Cons

    Widgets is all that matters. The trusted advisor they speak has no weight. Just run the apps they say. The new management are never present take all the credit and none of the blame. Nothing matters to them except their bonus

    Advice to Management

    Your team is the work horse and takes the weight the least you can do is fight for them. Employee satisfaction goes a long way.

    I worked at Fifth Third full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employees at the branches try to do their best.

    Cons

    A lot of depts have been contracted out. Branches are way under staffed. Performance targets unreasonably high. Lots of turnover has created an inexperienced staff.

    Advice to Management

    If I were looking to sell my company to a competitor, I would make my company attractive to acquire. Cut overhead throughout till you can barely function. Farm out as many bank services that you can. The bank is running way beyond "lean and mean." You look like you are for sale.

    I have been working at Fifth Third full-time

    Pros

    Bank holidays, awesome people, decent pay, good hours

    Cons

    Too much of a workload put on staff. It is very demanding in terms of sales production goals and it's also very repetitive and boring. The company does seem to really care about their employees though so you feel that the entire time.

    Advice to Management

    Try to challenge some of the ridiculous corporate ideas that are thought of in changed couple days later

    Pros

    401(k) matching is awesome, great cash handling, auditing, and banking experience, great supervisors depending on location, benefits were great although I had to hound my insurance to pay for a bill after a car accident,

    Cons

    Upper management caters to higher income neighborhoods and branches, work-life balance isn't so great depending on location, there are hundreds of duties and sometimes feels like an overload, management spends lot of hours on calls and outside of branch

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff for fast-paced branches

    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...
