    Pros

    Good training program. Every day is something different. Nice bonus plan, unlimited potential. Bank holidays.

    Cons

    Micromanaged at times.
    High-deductible health plan is only option.
    Working some Saturdays is required.
    Sometimes your limited as to when you can take your vacation, as adequate branch coverage is always needed.

    Pros

    PNC recognizes their employees that exemplify outstanding work every year.

    Cons

    Each branch is different I sometimes feel as if management and those that sit at the top doesn't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advancement is very easy once you have mastered the next skill you can move when a position becomes available.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Good management team, good training program, good bonus structure. Able to help customers achieve their financial goals.

    Cons

    Only insurance offered is high deductible health plan. Sometimes you can't get the vacation days you need because of needed branch coverage. Opportunities for promotions are limited unless you want to stay in a branch.
