Company strives to develop its people

Director of Development (Former Employee)
Cincinnati, OH (US)

I worked at PNC Financial Services Group full-time for more than 10 years

ProsFinancially stable company that values its employees

ConsI struggled to be taken seriously as a woman in the executive circle

Advice to Senior ManagementWhile the company has excellent policies in place to ensure that employees are treated respectfully, not all of those in upper management take them seriously.

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

PNC is a great company with opportunity to advance.

Relationship Manager (Former Employee)
Cleveland, OH (US)

I worked at PNC Financial Services Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe team leaders are genuinely concerned about your training and job performance.
The pay is probably commensurate with comparable banks.

ConsThe hiring process is too long. Mine took nearly 90 days from first contact to offer letter.
You need to be in your present position for at least one year in order to be considered for another position.

Advice to Senior ManagementStreamline the hiring process.

Great Company for Work/Life Balance

Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee)
Cleveland, OH (US)

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

ProsVery great work/life balance, work from home opportunities, paid vacation, great benefits, etc.

ConsDepending on the group, a lot of things are left up to manager discretion. Some management is a bit too traditional when it comes to dealing with millenials, so they need to work on that learning curve a bit.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to manage youth (millenials)

If you are in IT, this job is NOT for you!

Assistant Vice President (Former Employee)
Strongsville, OH (US)

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

ProsIt's a paycheck, and not much else. The benefits are actually quite poor.

ConsThis bank is WAY behind the tecnology curve. IT Systems at PNC are only upgraded when they are no longer supported by the manufacturer. There is no cutting edge technology anywhere in the bank. Technologies like Voice Over IP, Power Over Ethernet, Video Conferencing and WiFi are all largely absent from the PNC roster. Lotus Notes is the email platform in 2014, need I say more?

I had a manager who is a VP, and his boss, another VP, tell me that the way IT workers are tracked in his division is by logging into instant messaging. If you are not logged into IM, you are considered to NOT be working. If you are not on instant messaging, your boss starts sending notes via email and SMS text messages to your personal cell phone begin immediately to ask why you are not on Instant Messaging. Did you close out the huge fat instant messaging window on your desktop to perform other work? You are not on instant messaging, therefore, you are not working. The instant messaging client? An 8 year old version of Lotus Sametime.

This bank celebrates longevity. I met a guy who had been in the same job for 35 years and was retiring. Everyone at the bank thought it was absolutely wonderful. I thought to myself, if I am doing the same job in 35 years, shoot me.

This bank is takeover bait at best by a larger more efficient bank. Many people within PNC state that the bank is different and unique because it's a "relationship oriented bank". Do you have a relationship with your ATM? How about your local bank branch? Do you even know anyone's name in your local branch? This is an outdated company in a commoditized industry.

I was lied too in my interview process. Had a senior VP tell me bonuses were 15% for an AVP position. Learned on day two that bonuses for the position I was in were about 1%. Raises were also a joke in discussions with other people on the team, some averaging less than 1% a year.

My bosses boss who was a more senior VP told me that "At PNC, decision just happen, we don't make decisions. Decisions are dangerous and carry risk". That statement came from a guy with FOUR different MBA's from FOUR separate colleges at PNC who is running technology, but has no detailed technology experience.

Run away as fast as you can.
