    I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Training, career development, and very flexible work life balance. Worked for numerous companies in the past and none we as good as PNC. PNC is changing and for the better. PNC is one of the best Main Street Banks hands down with great people in all levels. I am proud to work at PNC.

    Cons

    Duplication of work, bad communication all over, not a technology leader, overstaffed in many areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck on turning the Titanic on a dime.

    Pros

    Managers care about career progression/growth of employees.

    Cons

    Weaker compensation justified by cost of living in PA and work/life balance (which is sometimes non existent).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gone are the days of employees staying at one company for 30 years. If you want talent to stay, compensation and approach will have to change to keep up with the times.

    Pros

    good values and recognition for employees on a seldom basis, connect with community and encouraged to build strong relationships

    too many hours, lack of one on one training, expectations are not clear when first hired

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more one on one training versus on the spot coaching, will create a more positive employee experience

    Pros

    For the most part, from middle-management down the company is full of great people. Opportunity for career growth is very prevalent.

    Cons

    At times it feels as if senior leadership is disconnected from the workforce. Goals are often unattainable and put undue pressure on employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize the impact on employees lives as a result of shortsighted planning. Often times programs or job descriptions are changed in a short amount of time causing inconsistency and the employee to be unsettled in their position.

    Pros

    PNC looks out for their customers and their employees. They really care about the environment and their customers overall.

    Cons

    They didn't have excellent promotions. They were a bank so it was difficult to have them.

    I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group

    Pros

    One of the biggest things for me is the work life balance. There are always times when I can step out in an emergency or know that when I am calling out, there are team members that can cover for me. I am very fortunate that I have a great branch team, not sure about other locations.

    Cons

    My current position still does not have a very clear expectation of what should be asked of them. it is a fairly new position to the company so there are constant changes to try and fit the mold of whatever upper management has decided to be the 'flavor of the month' for completing goals.

    Pros

    Great organization to work for. Coworkers are generally skilled and helpful. There are plenty of resources for employees to use, and the company overall is big on work/life balance.

    Cons

    Management is hit or miss. Sometimes you work for people that invest a lot in your development, but sometimes you work for individuals that are not interested at all in your growth, but rather their own. I get that mentality, but as a manager there should be a balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your teams and less about the number of meetings you have to attend.

    I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group

    Pros

    PNC has a very unique way of treating its employees - people truly want to help you and make sure you are happy in your job. While most employers will state this, PNC actually walks the walk.

    Cons

    It's amazing that PNC hasn't been toppled by its own bureaucracy and general inefficiency. The systems are stone-age, some of the policies & procedures are completely out of date and useless... All of this results in time wasted and general frustration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down bureaucracy whenever you can, update policies & procedures. If PNC put as much time in cutting down bureaucracy & improving overall processes/efficiencies as it did in finding ways to cut costs, not only would it save more money but would be a much more effective organization.
