    I worked at Fulton Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You gain experience in different aspects of banking

    Cons

    If you have a complaint there, there are no resolutions. Every complaint is brushed under the table by Management and Human Resources. This company cares nothing for their employees. The compensation that you receive is said to be competitive, but trust me it is not. I was an employee for several years and I was good at my job yet every year on my review they scored me low so they did not have to give a raise. I am not the only one this happened to. I was told to lie to customers. If you want to believe in the company you work for don't work for Fulton!!!

    Advice to Management

    Train Upper Management and Human Resources to handle complaints by Employees. Care about the people that work for you and they will intern work hard for you. Don't lie and cheat customers because honestly I would never bank at any of your banks and I will tell everyone and every customer everything I know about this company. If you compensate your employees fairly your so called "lean" process will improve because your employees will know they are valued.

    Pros

    The benefits are the best thing about this company. Various locations to move throughout the company. If you know the right people you can move up.

    Cons

    If you are not a man good luck at getting paid what you are worth.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees, all of them, what they are worth.

    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

    I love my direct manager and my staff. My manager has given me the tools to succeed.

    Cons

    Upper management is not supportive. No room for growth, stagnant atmosphere. Annual raises are pennies for those who work really hard, and there's no reward.

    Advice to Management

    Be more in tune with the "temperature" of your employees. Compensate your employees accordingly.

    I have been working at Fulton Financial full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good training for people early in their career. The employees are, for the most part, very nice. Stable jobs in an unstable employment market.

    Cons

    Pay is very low compared to industry standards. Benefits consistently are being cut. Not enough trained people in key departments. They do not promote internally, and once you are in, your pay raises are very very limited.

    Advice to Management

    Look to develop the talent that you have within instead of bringing in people from the outside and paying them more than you offer your internal candidates.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, decent benefits and PTO

    Cons

    Pay, few opportunities to advance, short-staffed

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting band aids on problems and resolve issues for long term solutions, offer more opportunities for internal growth/promotion, review the yearly/promotion increases (pay employees for what they are worth/contribute)

    I have been working at Fulton Financial full-time

    Pros

    Company is developing a strategic vision and has yet to implement it fully so lots to do in terms of change management but management has its eye on the ball and is moving in the right direction.

    Cons

    too much reliance on consensus thinking for large strategic issues which makes the bank slow to react and appear risk averse. Does not pay for performance
