    Pros

    Some nice people work there.

    Cons

    So glad I moved on. Very little chance for advancement. IT systems really need to be brought into the modern era. Pay is very low. 401k company match doesn't start until 1 year of service is completed. Management seems to be confused as to what direction they want to take the bank. Complacency amongst many employees. Bank is somewhat stuck in the past. I am not sure Fulton would still be around if Susquehanna Bank had not been bought out by BB&T.

    Advice to Management

    The bank is surviving on its local 100 year + reputation alone, which has very little to do with those currently in management. Need to bring in some bankers with more worldly experience to take the bank to the next level to compete better. This won't happen with current management, you seem overwhelmed and out of ideas. Actually take to heart and act on the employee engagement surveys.

    Good benefits package. The company has great growth potential. Work-life balance is respected. They are bringing in a lot of fresh talent which is helping to implement the solid corporate strategy the senior leadership has laid out.

    Cons

    Some departments are very resistant to change. Some people are very selfish with their time. Some positions are underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    You're moving in the right direction, keep going!

    Pros

    Upper management is starting to change and fully embrace a Technology first concept which is awesome as an employee!

    Cons

    Compared to my peers in the field, the yearly raises are slim as well as the bonuses. No gym or showers.

    I have been working at Fulton Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is honestly nothing I have nice to say about Fulton

    Cons

    I just want to warn people looking to work for this company in New Jersey. There is a whole different type of people working in NJ then the "approachable" management and people you read about in PA. There is a company wide problem however...it's all about who you know...you are not getting a promotion without some major brown nosing. That's very hard to do when the managers are mostly very hard to work for and don't know their jobs....especially in Mantua, NJ. The managers in Mantua want to pass blame and actually yell at employees. They are the "talk nice to your face" , "tell you that you are doing great" then turn around and give you a less then mediocre review. There are nicer places to work with better pay out there and I just want to give honest hard working people a heads up.

    Advice to Management

    Learn your job. Honestly learn all aspects of it. Give honest criticism in a kind way. Pay your employees what they're worth. Mantua NJ needs fresh management because there is honestly not one nice thing to say about the people there.

    Pros

    Monday- Friday 8:00 to 4:30, good life/work balance. Co-workers are great!

    Cons

    Pay! The pay is not worth the tedious work involved. Feel stuck in that job position

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the bottom employees so that real change can be made

    I have been working at Fulton Financial full-time

    Pros

    Great health and education benefits. Friendly corporate culture. Upper level management are typically very approachable.

    Cons

    Corporation as a whole are resistant to change. Not a lot of incentive to work hard. Promotions are earned via nepotism (a surprisingly large amount of it) and years with the company, rather than hard work and performance. The company loses a lot of young talent as a result. Pay isn't competitive, which is another reason turnover is high with younger employees. After a few years of experience, they find they can leave for another institution and get a significant pay raise.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more heavily in technology and young employees. Filter out the legacy employees that are still around just because the company takes pride in employing people for decades.
