    Great Company To Work For

    Teller Supervisor (Current Employee) Pottstown, PA (US)

    ProsThis company has the best benefits of any employer I've worked for. They offer health, dental, vision, educational assistance, vacation time, and many other little benefits like employee stock purchase program and health coaches. Bonuses are earned based off of production and customer service scores.

    ConsThe biggest downfalls is the salary. Sometimes I do the work of 3 people and I feel that I am not appropriately compensated. You do get a quarterly bonus for customer service skills but if the branch fails, even if you have perfect shops, you don't get compensated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to management would be to recognize those who work hard and reward them for it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great so far, depends on the manager as well

    Associate Investment Advisor (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD (US)

    Prosgreat work life balance, growth opportunities, nice working environment, great learning opportunities
    depends on the person as well, hard work does pay off

    ConsPay is well below the industry average, technology is not upto the mark
    high turnover rate for employees. Finds it difficult to hold on to good talent. Probably because of lower pay than peers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave to look into the pay system. It is a very competitive world out there.
    Have to evolve with time and stay upto the mark in terms of technology

    Good company overall. Some upper management can be a pain, but it depends on what region you are in.

    ProsHours, good team work, lots of room for moving up in the company

    Conscompensation could be a little better

    Lack of communication

    Relationship Expander (Current Employee) Kalamazoo, MI (US)

    ProsGood pay and benefits are decent.

    ConsWorkload can be extremely busy. Difficult to navigate the necessary computer programs in order to service the customer. Was told to assume the customer was a "fraudster" when calling in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo touchy-feely. Every friday, employees got together and recognized something we were grateful for. While it was nice getting out 30 minutes early, I don't think it's necessary to promote the mindless ego-boost that usually ensued. Work on making it easier for the representatives to service the customer.

    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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
