    I have been working at Fulton Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Pros

    The have a good working environment along with some very good benefits. Work environment is very friendly and everyone is respectful.

    Cons

    Employees are paid a salary that is a long way under the industry average. Although the benefits are good, the base take home salary needs to be increased.

    I have been working at Fulton Financial full-time

    Pros

    Very well structured, friendly people, promising future for the company given the bevy of changes it is going through internally.

    The management trainee program is a borderline revered program at FFC and it shows by how many "alumni" of the program are still with the company (a lot of former trainees have spent their entire careers at Fulton).

    Cons

    Typical hierarchical politics can be a bit redundant but this happens in most large corporations. Depending on the area you rotate in, it can be a challenge to get to know people if you're not in a rotation for more than a month.

    I worked at Fulton Financial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Its a call center. Pay was OK, benefits were sub-par. Managers are nice. At least they offer 401K.

    Cons

    The communication between the branches, call center, and other departments are terrible. If you try to contact other departments to research something, they don't really want to assist you or do the least amount of work possible; if the task requires any work on their part they give you attitude and a hard time. They schedule is ridiculous, some days they have you working an hour or two more if you have to work that weekend. their are too many shifts and anyone who get stuck with 10-7 shifts are just screwed in my opinion especially those who have to drive in that terrible traffic.

    Advice to Management

    My advice if you want all shifts to be covered, set permanent shifts for your employees. Make a shift Differential for those who have to work the later shift and weekend shift. Switching people shifts all the time will not keep your employees happy especially if your not notifying the employees of the changes. When I was hired I was told I would only have to work a Saturday every 3 weeks or so, then all the sudden when I started working you switched it to every other weekend. Perhaps if you could keep you employees happy they wouldn't leave.
