It was okay.

Teller (Former Employee)
Newtown, PA (US)

I worked at PNC Financial Services Group part-time for less than a year

ProsI liked how flexible they were with my school schedule. I had a great manager. He was very understanding and truly cared about his employees.

ConsPay was terrible compared to other banks. I needed full time and they only had part time. Lots of drama. Working with almost all women was tough.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees. A happy employee will be a better employee.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Decent job.... good luck with trying to have a career

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group full-time

ProsGood work life balance
Time off
Pension plan

ConsCompany way behind competition so roles are based on copying to catch up
No way to move up/get promoted
They think it's a pay for performance culture but it's not
Annual increases are consistently small

Advice to Senior ManagementFoster more growth from within and give your current employees incentive to care. Pittsburgh based so opportunities for employees in the financial services industry are limited. employees aren't staying cause they are happy, they just have limited ptions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

NSFC

NSFC (Former Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA (US)

I worked at PNC Financial Services Group part-time for more than a year

ProsPay was decent relative to other low skill jobs available in the area. There is some potential for advancement provided there is management turnover.

ConsThe work is exceptionally boring. Dealing with customers that are angry because they were charged ridiculous NSF fees of $30-36 for over drawing an account by $0.50 is not fun.

Great employees. They upset customers with discreet changes and eliminated positions that helped branches.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at PNC Financial Services Group

ProsGreat culture. Less sales pressure than other banks.

ConsPay is not as great as other banks and they seem to be eliminating positions higher up as well as at branch level.

Advice to Senior ManagementBranch level management is awesome. Upper management needs to stop cutting corners. It will cost you customer and great staffing that you have now.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Program moving in the right direction

Financial Analyst Development Program (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA (US)

I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group full-time for less than a year

ProsFinancial Analyst Development Program (FADP) is moving in the right direction. Really good exposure to senior management. Pay is definitely competitive for the location (although finance makes less than many other areas of the bank).

ConsA lot of the experience is how lucky you get with your rotations; some are much better than others. If you get lucky with your rotations then the experience will be good, but otherwise watch out. There is very little opportunity for "finance" work as the vast majority of it is accounting based.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure analysts are placed in a rotation that NEEDS someone so they aren't just sitting around. Look to hire more people with accounting backgrounds instead of finance.

Careful selecting benefits as soon as possible

Bilingual Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA (US)

I worked at PNC Financial Services Group full-time for less than a year

ProsIt was a job, it taught me a lot of useful information about government regulations on the banking industry, some have since changed.

ConsIt took me three weeks to select benefits and when I did, my paycheck took benefits price from day one, no one advised any employees that would happen, before, during or after.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe crystal clear on how the payment of benefits happens, from when to when and whether selecting them the first day or 3 weeks in does not matter.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
