Suggestions for improvement

  • Assert more authority in enforcing rules and policies across the board and not for certain employees.

What I like about the company

Whenever I needed support in any area of my life, my employer is there to help get through my situation.

What I dislike about the company

The management needs to be less lenient in letting certain employees get away with certain situations. More authority needs to be asserted.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Managers should be screened a little more at hiring so they can be weeded out if their grammar is bad or if they talk about religion a lot. This is a bank come on

What I like about the company

Was hired by a manager who transferred right away and was training without a manager at my location. Everyone- peers and supervisors, even people from other locations helped teach me everything without me even having to ask. Goals are challenging but attainable and theres always someone to take you under their wing if youd like to advance. Great hours and comfortable work environment.

What I dislike about the company

Communication between managers could be stronger. Communication between market managers and lowest level employees could be opened up more. Maternity leave wasnt a big issue for me, but it seems like there arent many options for an expectant or new mother... just to take your short term disability, which isnt full pay and isnt muxch time off. Job sharing should be considered, and more flexible hours for employees with positions who are able to do work out of the office.

  • They need to work on hiring, new employee training and employee retention.

What I like about the company

I have met many people that I am now close with personally and professionally. I have also worked a plan to move forward and that has gotten me several promotions within the three and a half years working there.

What I dislike about the company

I wish that banking and the financial industry was not so heavy with men. It can sometimes be difficult to feel like I will be able to make it to the highest level of management I sl trying to go.

Company Culture

Communication not aligned with realities. It is still a pure Good Old Boy company where diversity is crushed.

Teamwork

Great people, but the best end up moving on.

Freedom to work independently

When management is incompetent, they might impose requirements that really do not make sense to someone who is competent.

Internal Communication

Again, they don't walk the talk.

Gender Equality

Women are treated as bonafide admins.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Between early retirements & RIFs, what older colleagues?

Career Development

Not even recognized for pursuing industry certifications, what development?

Overall compensation for your work

Nothing remarquable, everything is on the cheap.

Office / Work Environment

No space, new open spaces where you only get a desk...

Company Image

Fifth Third - 5 jobs for 3 people, the adage is still true and more true as time goes by.

Job Security

None. Anyone can be on the chopping block at any time.

Inclusive / Diverse

They pretend they value diversity but would accept anything from a middle aged white male that anyone else would get fired for.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Apart from changing the whole C-Suite, where to start?

What I like about the company

Used to like the people, most of them are gone or on the way out.

What I dislike about the company

Complete disregard for humanity.
