    Pros

    In my affiliate at least, Fifth Third seems to genuinely care about their employees, and they've recently established several progression programs to help employees learn skills to continue advancing their career.

    Cons

    As with most companies these days, it seems they expect us to run completely understaffed on a daily basis.

    I worked at Fifth Third (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, large organization, some career paths depending on which line of business you work in.

    Cons

    Unfortunately there is a lot of favoritism at the bank and if you are not in the "in" group, friends with the right people or connected to the right people, your career options are limited. In addition, long term employees tend to be paid at a lower level than newer hires, due to limited merit increases over the years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your internal employees the way you treat your external candidates. Appreciate your long-term employees and work to retain your exceeds performers by continuing to evaluate their pay from an equity perspective to lessen the gap within teams. Merit once per year does not lessen the gap... Make more concerted efforts to make this a focus year round.
