    I worked at Huntington National Bank full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots or room to advance
    Good culture about doing what is right for client
    Normally, really strong leaders who value colleague development.

    Cons

    Entire job families get eliminated-lots of mass layoffs
    Work life balance used to be important, now its non-existent
    A few bad managers ruined a great place to have a career.
    Health insurance is a joke if you ever have to use it.

    Advice to Management

    I am disappointment that after the First Merit merger, the leaders who were brought in were inadequate and ruined the culture we had. I don't know why that was allowed to happen. When you sit in your office in Columbus and come up with all these amazing ideas about goals, staffing, playbook etc, sometimes you forget how that impacts us little guys on the front line of retail.

    I worked at Huntington National Bank full-time

    Pros

    Terrific opportunity to learn information that will positively impact your finances.

    Cons

    You must understand that it's retail.

    Advice to Management

    It's important to note the conditions in which I left the place. I had no quarrels, I was liked by my team, I was a successful Banker, and I was in an affluent city.

    On to the review...

    Yes, you work at a bank, but no matter how you dress it up it's still a retail work environment. It's stressful, the hours aren't great (especially if you work in-store), management is weak, and the compensation is low compared to other banks in the industry.

    It's not that I didn't appreciate my time working there because there's an abundance of real-world knowledge available to you and you would be well-served to learn as much as you can, but for anyone looking to get your foot in the door in hopes of a lengthy rewarding career, proceed with caution.

    You must be malleable. The direction of the company seemed to change with the season. It's comparable to Ohio weather. One day it's snowing the next it's 80. Nobody at the top knows what they want and whether they mean to or not, they do a poor job of hiding the misguidance.

    I knew bankers that stayed in their role for 20 years, I knew bankers that went from a teller to a Branch Manager, and I knew bankers that either quit or asked to be demoted to a teller. My point is that most of the time your success and overall satisfaction with the job comes down to a few things: Likability, location, management, and resume.

    Brown nosing went a long way at my location and although a little is fine, there was far too much to stomach where I worked. If you're going to stay find a balance. I hate the expression, but sippin' the Kool-Aid is the best way to describe the dozens of colleagues I met.

    If you get stuck at an in-store hope for two things: High volume transactions and distance from the closest traditional branch.
    You can easily get the short end of the stick if you work close to a traditional branch. I worked very close to a traditional branch and customers saw us as a check cashing and complaint pop-up shop.
    The real business was done at the "real branch".

    Management won't necessarily make or break you, but it can easily make your time at Huntington less than ideal. I was unfortunate to have a manager that resigned himself to his only to let the assistant manager run the morale into the ground. The dynamics were complicated. The demands weren't unreasonable, but the way the demands of the job were conveyed was poor to say the least.

    Lastly, I listed resume because if you have a college degree, or a marketable set of skills, there really isn't a reason to stay in retail banking.

    It's very much a dead end in my opinion, but I would relent and say it's a very steep hill to climb for such little reward, compensation, and prestige.

    Everyone should work at a bank at some point in their life, but you would do well to stay only as long as you need to.

    Pros

    I loved the companies values and wonderful partners

    Cons

    After our division went into Net Ox and with the massive flip in procedures and job title we were left without decent management in the Covington site, I would love to work for this company if they changed LM/VE Mortgage management in Covington, & removed the wrongful PIP, then ?

    Advice to Management

    They need to review Covington Management over company core values, for guidance, to have an open door for assistance for all employees in a whole. Good Management builds their team through a change of this magnitude.

    Pros

    I do not have any pros for this company. They have a lot of things to work on. With being such a big company major changes are needed

    Cons

    Huntington needs to take care of their employees much better. I think the pay should be much more higher then what it currently is
