    I worked at Fulton Financial full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    It's all about who you know...

    I have been working at Fulton Financial

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Fulton Financial for more than 5 years

    Pros

    generous paid time off, ease of moving among departments within the corporation, tuition reimbursement (with subsequent time commitment required), senior executives very approachable, low turnover, especially for those who have never worked elsewhere.

    Cons

    Management, even at the senior level are generally unqualified and entitled. Some management have been there so long, some since fresh out of undergrad college, that there is a significant resistance to change and new ideas. Closed-minded, inexperienced outside of Fulton, management. There are many employees who are higher educated and have more outside, broad experience who will struggle with advancement since middle management has it made and would struggle to find anything outside of this company, hence why turnover is low. If it affects the bottom line, even if it is correct and generates long term improvement, it is a no-go. Don't think out of the box here, that may involve time and money. It's not about quality of work, it's about how quickly you can get it done. Pay is ok, but not comparable to industry competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay connected to business units and know where your corporate risks lie. The regulators do. Stagnant management equals mediocre work and product.

    Pros

    They are very interested in you as a person, not just a worker drone. Competitive pay and benefits. Lovely working environment.

    Cons

    The cons in any sort of customer based services are of course the customers, some times. We have a mostly older customer base and a lot of them are awnry.

    I worked at Fulton Financial full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Colleagues make or break the experience
    - exposure to full functioning of department
    - Regular training available to employees
    As an intern I did not get as broad of an exposure to the company as an entry-level professional within the rotational program so this perspective is limited in that sense. These are general observations.

    Cons

    - Very little room for growth professionally
    - Removed from senior management
    - repetitive work
    - lack of ambition in atmosphere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve visibility and initiate merit-based growth opportunities within departments

    I worked at Fulton Financial

    Pros

    Fulton Bank was a great place to work, the staff that I worked was friendly and very accommodating. Fulton is definitely a family atmosphere.

    Cons

    The only down side that I found was my ability to move on within the company. There was a lot of waiting for the right position to open up. In the end the wait was too long and it was time for me to move on, although I did gain a great deal of experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I appreciate the atmosphere and "family" type community, but it might be going too far. There is a lot of favoritism which makes it difficult to make it in to any other depatrment.
