    I worked at Huntington National Bank full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    For the most part, I enjoyed working for Huntington and the role I had for the first couple of years. The two people who hired me were wonderfully smart, no-nonsense people and provided me with a variety of "stretch" and growth opportunities. I also loved the line of business I supported: I learned a lot about the business, I developed great working relationships and I gained exposure to and experience with the top ranks. I believed I could make a difference and build upon my career at this company.

    Cons

    Shortly after I started working at Huntington, changes began taking place under a new but temporary group head after the previous manager had been fired. Within a little more than a year, I had five managers and "survived" several reorgs. One of my managers left, the person who replaced him quit five months into her job, one of my colleagues got fired and the "temporary" group head accepted the role permanently, creating more of a sense of uncertainty and instability for the team. The group head had never managed a team, nor had she had experience in one of the main fields of the position. It was a mismatch through and through and affected the team in a negative way. Finally, after yet more reorganization of the team and her hiring my replacement without good reason or me knowing, I tried to stick it out until I was forced to resign.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For such a small but mighty team within the bank that continues to try to establish itself and produce outstanding work, consider the drastic changes that have taken place within a short period of time and really look into why. After firing a senior leader, is it wise to put someone in that position who has no leadership or key field experience, poor communications skills and multiple people under her leave and never challenge her decisions out of fear she'll put them out of a job next? Further, with the enormous effort put on the values of the company - living the values, embedding the values into everything you do - isn't it strange that teams exist within the bank that don't embody good teamwork, inclusion, communication, etc., skills? Finally, hold onto and elevate top talent. To do so, also rely on the feedback of co-workers, business partners, etc. Something isn't right in the upper circle when there is mistrust and insecurity breeding to the point that top-notch colleagues are either getting fired or having to resign.

    Pros

    Great opportunities - Diversity - training. The Training cannot be beat , their team is right on top of all changes.

    Cons

    The salary is less than desirable. The mid-level managers need to be coached on compassion and retaining employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to recognize your lower level employees - Awards - Banquets - increased salary would be beneficial.

    I worked at Huntington National Bank part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Our office was awesome. We had our differences but for the most part we were able to get along great. The company values the communities in which they serve. Many opportunities to donate time and money to a variety of fundraisers (Pelotonia, Relay for Life, etc.).

    Cons

    Not much room for growth unless you are interested in sales (except if you live where headquarters are). Communication was an issue at times with upper management (district managers).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication could be better within upper management.

    I worked at Huntington National Bank full-time

    Pros

    The people there really care about the customer and service them well. Good inter-department cooperation.

    Cons

    Compensation is stagnant. Work life balance is poor. Do more with less. Branch staffing is very poor and turnover is very high. Health benefits declined, raises and bonuses are non existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please value the contributions of your employees and commit to an environment of retaining your talent. Turnover is expensive. Recognize and reward contributions.

    Pros

    Great starting pay. You have very loyal clientele that you start to know by name.

    Cons

    Hard to advance unless you become best friends with the DM. Hours make it hard to find a balance in your personal life. Unobtainable expectations for lending, especially when the rates are not competitive.
