    I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    generally seem to vet out candidates and bring good people into company. comfortable workplace with very respectable benefits. super conservative company that isn't likely to surprise you with big changes or changes of course.

    Cons

    good people are lost due to better paying competition, as if company takes on job of recruiting, training for others. mobility in company is available but often slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    incent your subordinates as much as possible to keep performance up. if you can't pay them more, give them a sense of being able to improve their position through hard work. otherwise, the best will leave for better advancement or pay.

    Pros

    Good company values. Good employees to work with. Really well put together training program that was very good at preparing new employees for the job.

    Cons

    Heavy pressure on customer reviews through Gallup, which are hard to properly apply, as customers consider a 4 star as good, which PNC considers almost "bad."

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

    Pros

    Strong culture and training program if hired right out of undergrad. Work life balance is good and you can expect regular banking hours.

    Cons

    Very conservative and the company does not stretch risk profile even for deals it should. Length of employment large factor in promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stretch for some deals if full relationship potential. Internal technology needs to be updated in a big way.

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

    Pros

    If you're looking for opportunities to advance and you do well at your current job, they will gladly send you to additional training that will help you move up.

    Pay was decent for an entry-level position.

    Company matches 100% of your 401k contributions up to a maximum amount, and after 2 years you become vested. Also, there is a pension plan.

    Cons

    Leadership could be a bit spotty.

    Pushed sales over service. Extreme pressure to meet monthly goals that could be unrealistic.

    Scheduling vacation was a pain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For upper management, I'd advise working more closely with branch leadership to set achievable goals, and stop cutting back on morale activities.
