[cryptography] RSA signatures without padding

Suppose I have a message M for which I generate an RSA-2048 digital
signature as follows:
H = SHA-256(M)
S = H^d mod N
Assume N = p*q is properly generated and d is the RSA private key.
And I verify the signature as follows:
S^e mod N == H'
where H' is the SHA-256 of the message to be authenticated. Assume e is the
RSA public key.
Since I've not used any padding then are there any flaws with the above
approach? What if e = 3? What if e = 2^16+1?
Your guidance is much appreciated.
