    I worked at PNC Financial Services Group

    Pros

    PNC has great products for everyone so it is easy to "sell" them to consumers to make your goals. Benefits are good. If you are a student they offer tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Established goals can be excessive and very aggressive. Work-life balance is difficult for management to offer because most branches only have 5-7 employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Selling is an acquired skill for people, offer training that allow employees to practice selling products and services.

    Pros

    Wonderful reputation, strong market share, tools and resources available to be successful.

    Cons

    Restrictions on pay increases between pay grades limit the benefits of moving up. Difficult to change paths once you settle into a role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more creative in developing your better talent, and don't be afraid to pay them accordingly. Someone else will.

    Pros

    Work/life balance
    Development and growth opportunities
    Long term employer

    Cons

    There is no Unity within the bank, some departments don't work well with other departments. Hard to get information from some areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote Unity or "oneness" throughout the bank. We are all working for the same goal.. we are PNC, we are "1 PNC" not different companies

    Pros

    Many entry level opportunities, competitive salary & great benefits.

    Cons

    Font line manager training is inadequate, insufficient support from senior management and human resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication throughout all functional areas, as well as within lines of business needs drastic improvement. Hours of operation should be adjusted to reflect contact rates & customer need instead of just keeping with general format.
