    Best training program, very collegial and friendly

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Pittsburgh, PA (US)

    ProsIt's true: Wall St. capabilities, Main St. culture. There is also a very strong emphasis on teamwork. Senior bankers are outstanding, great to work with and really develop their people.

    ConsCredit decisions made by separate organization, can be very bureaucratic. An awful lot of staff overhead, but the present regulatory environment makes that a problem for the whole industry.

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Saint Louis, MO (US)

    I have had a great experience at PNC and am sad to be leaving the company.

    Document Procurement Processor/Setup (Current Employee) Downers Grove, IL (US)

    ProsI started in 2009 and since then I've gone from my starting position to one that was created then back to my original position. I like working here because the salaries are competitive, the benefits are good and I love the people I work with as well as my boss. They have a 401K match, pension and various other great benefits. To be fair I am in an introductory position with no incentives which takes the pressure off, even though I still have to hit a quota. I work at the Downers Grove, IL location.

    ConsI am being let go from the company effective in September because the position that I was in was "eliminated" which I am still mad about. They promised that it would be a great career path to processing, then a year later, they got rid of it and the duties of the position were absorbed into another one. Other than that, like a lot of the other reviews on here, the most you can get as a salary increase with moving to another position is 10%. Other than that, I don't have any cons as this is the best company I have ever worked for. I am trying to find other employment right now before my severance date in September. They also have a very generous severance package which helps out a lot.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't offer a position that is going to be a gateway to another position then take it away. This has thrown my whole career out of whack and with it being such a tough time in the mortgage industry right now, I might not even be able to get another job in the industry. Salary increases should be higher especially when going from one department to another.

    CSA, Great Rewards, Low Stress

    CSA/Switcher (Former Employee) Clarksville, IN (US)

    ProsConsidering the push in sales in banking, PNC makes you feel as if you should only match products with what customers actually need, and that's something you can feel good about. Referrals are necessary, of course, but the incentive is awesome. I left for family. If not for that, there was great potential to advance. The KY/IN market has an exceptional team.

    ConsNone of us particularly liked lobby engagement, which was policed by regionals. However, it really did make a difference when practiced properly- for safety and customer needs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe old workplace banking (pre-fall 2013 changes) was a great program, though maybe not practical for business with the old model, but sometimes offering the customer a great product trumps business sense in the long run. I saw a drop in my ability to sell premium products after the products changed.

    Overall, corporate training program is definitely top-notch. Company is taking measures to improve working environment.

    Internal Auditor (Current Employee) Philadelphia, PA (US)

    ProsTraining was definitely a great positive along with exposure to various aspects of bank/corporate structure. Company believes in a work-life balance for its employees.

    ConsDifficulty to move on to other positions. There are limited opportunities if management is not in support of what you want to do.
