    I have been working at Fifth Third full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and opportunities to learn. Advancement difficult above VP. Solid Midwest bank that remains true to its conservative Cincinnati roots. Like many companies here, senior management tends to have very long (20+ years tenure). That's good and bad.

    Cons

    As mentioned in the Pro section the long tenure of senior management tends to promote resistance to change. That's probably not particular to 5/3. Banking is a restrictive place to be these days.

    Welcoming atmosphere. Everyone works as a team. Great goals as a company and they treat their employees well with benefits and incentives!

    Only down side is that they havent expanded throughout the U.S. yet.

    Advice to Management

    Please expand to the West so I can come back to work for Fifth Third. I miss my job.

    Pros

    Benefits where amazing and the hours were fantastic

    Cons

    I don't like hounding people for there financial information or status on the teller line I think it can be degrading when there are others around them.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on customer service and not a sell that way they feel comfortable and the sells will come!

    Pros

    I was in a bank mart so we had extended hours and we were open 7 days a week. They was nice because it allowed me to have a more flexible schedule. But working the weekends and evenings got old after about 2 years of doing it all the time. Great benefits

    Cons

    They expected a lot from the tellers. They put too much stress on them. I was on track to be a manager and they kept putting me off because I was too good as a teller and the branch did not want to lose me. It made me find a new job.

    Advice to Management

    You put too much stress on your employees. Everyone in the branch was in fear of not doing everything perfect. When there are long line the customers just want to do there transactions and not be offered bank products.

    Pros

    The coworkers are nice. Technology up to date. Great employee outings. The help line is your lifeline And they are awesome!

    Cons

    10.5 hour Mondays with call nights On the retail side. Nobody likes that on Mondays. Open on saturdays. No WiFi in branches.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes they can come off micromanagey. Fix the miscommunication through fax to the underwriters and consolidate the numbers. There are at least 15 and they keep changing.
