    I worked at Fifth Third (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gives you a real inside look in the corporate world. Very good experience if you're interested in in-house marketing.

    Cons

    No real cons, just be repaired to hit the floor running.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I worked at Fifth Third full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Attractive salary with big bank products and services

    Cons

    Tampa and Orlando were a cultural cesspool due to previous leadership. Despite promises, there was no career upside, it was just a job. Horrible Bancorp leadership, lacks vision and insight into local markets and opportunities. Politics and scorecard check marks count for more than true production and contributions. Prior local market president was a joke in the community, and prior statewide executive had the worst reputation in banking throughout Florida. Used to have some really talented team members, but the best bankers left in 2011-2015 and are now having success elsewhere in central florida. I was warned by others before I joined the bank, and stayed for over 5 years due solely to compensation. Since leaving, have been promoted twice with comparable production. Like others before me, I am now winning business consistently against them!

    Advice to Management

    Either get a clue or divest your Florida operations!

    Good 401k options. Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Unreachable goals, skeleton staffing. Management only cares about points.

    Staff your branches, realize good talent, take a good look at the goals vs traffic and opportunity.

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

    Pros

    Independence, set my own schedule, a decent paycheck, was able to source business that could have been considered quality investments within commercial mortgage lending. Good benefit package.

    Cons

    Management gives the appearance of incompetence particularly in my area of expertise. Unapproachable and from my experience had no vision. I was hired in a VP position but there was absolutely no training. In fact, I had no office support staff. I had no key to my office on the 18th floor for several weeks and no computer for 4 weeks. If I wanted to prepare a solicitation package I had to access the materials, draft the package myself , assemble it and with no adminstrative assistant help.

    Advice to Management

    Those in mid to senior management levels need to get their act together. When presented with a relationship-building opportunity, they need to have people in place who can recognize it for present and future dealmaking potential that can result in long-term relationships. Bank is multi-dimensional and has the potential to compete with similar regional banks.

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Good monthly incentives if earned, learned a great deal out of the company, great co workers, always compensated me and recognized me for being a great teller.

    Cons

    not so good manager, could not advance to full-time, no communication with manager even though I tried, a lot of overturn within the company at that time.

    Advice to Management

    They were great with me as far as recognition for my great work but would not let me advance once I was at that branch to another location to full time.

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

    Pros

    There isn't any good reasons to work here, bank here, have your mortgage here. They treat their employees terrible and have no regards for work life balance. You are just a number to them and they do not train you properly for any job.

    Cons

    No training, terrible ethics, they make shady loans, and have terrible organizational leaders. Very poorly ran company. Management is a mess all the way to the top!!

    Advice to Management

    Get off your chair and help your employees

    Really good growth opportunity to gain new customers since customers are unhappy with the dominate banks, Sincere genuine employees who care about the relationships they establish.

    offices are run with minimal people and there are so many openings that current people are getting burned out

    the leader that runs the Tampa branches is very negative and sarcastic creates controversy and shows favoritism
