    I have been working at Huntington National Bank

    Pros

    Fun Staff, Make new friends, Human Resource Dept has been nothing but great to me!

    Cons

    No pay increase, no promotions within, the work/life balance is not so great. They do not offer sick days along with vacation. The health benefits premiums just went up and they are not all that great either.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coach along the way, show the ropes to newcomers. Promote within to keep employee retention and the in-store program should have shorter days or closed for the holidays. They do not generate much traffic or sales those days.

    Former Employee - Systems Analyst Lead in Columbus, OH (US)

    I worked at Huntington National Bank as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    My colleagues were friendly, so I was able to accomplish the work on time.
    Also all the employees with whom I worked were located in the same building.
    Flexible work schedule.
    I have changed my work timings depending on the client's requirements.

    Cons

    The applications' Architectures were so complex and there was no proper documentation.
    As result no one knew what was going on.
    It was tough in the beginning on how to begin my work, until I met the right person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organize the Documentation properly so corresponding employees will know what is going on.

    I worked at Huntington National Bank part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The customers were great. The benefits are amazing! Health was a huge part of Huntington and that's one thing I'm big on. Some co-workers were great too.

    Cons

    The pay was subpar. The management was horrible and sometimes non-existent (meaning, managers stayed in their offices all day..playing on their phones). The office I was at had nothing but double standards. (Tellers can't have food or even water on the line, yet platform side can. Tellers can't have phones on the line, platform side can. Tellers can't browse Internet, platform side can.) The referral goal was most of the time unattainable. The workload put onto us made for 11-12 hour days sometimes (new system with no support). There was no work-life balance. Huntington was very harsh on sick time/pto. They didn't care if you had medical issues; you would get no sick pay or medical leave (besides fmla), just points which can get you terminated quickly. Working in a bank exposes you to disgusting money..you're bound to get sick. Huntington was the only bank I've ever worked at that had no sick days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop micro-managing the tellers!!

    IT intern

    I worked at Huntington National Bank

    Pros

    Worked with V. P.s at company. Got to go to lots of actual meetings. Learned a lot from the experience. Team building activities with other interns.

    Cons

    No big project or great things to put on resume from working at internship. Kind of just worked a corporate job.

    Pros

    Health Insurance, Co-Workers and Customers

    Cons

    Not realistic, When customers come first as they should then you should have adequate staffing to give simply the best service. Poor Quality of equipment for the work that needs processed. Non support with issues or problems only blames the staff for the issues. Non existence of appropriate learning and training unless you can do in between transactions Working past times scheduled on a regular basis due to not having adequate staffing and issues with the systems causing back up of work that still needs done. Do not get the appropriate resources in a time frame that should be in. Do not feel as if those that should be our support ,is there to support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come and work for a few weeks on the busiest times and take a realistic look. At Busy offices not the slower ones.

    Quit trying to do more with less. Giving more responsibility with less staff.

    I worked at Huntington National Bank full-time

    Pros

    Many long-term employees who care about what happens to their clients. Outstanding CEO - truly a master that has turned around Huntington's financial performance. Since most everything is broken, there really isn't a lot of pressure to fix things. Broken is the new successful.

    Cons

    Majority of IT management is from Chase. Chase isn't known as a great place to work in Columbus - guess how it is to work at Huntington now. Innovation is hunted down and killed. And Innovators are driven out of the company.

    Few highly skilled developers. Huntington IT is sort of an elephant graveyard - where careers go when they are ready to die.

    Some areas perform well - Architecture comes to mind. Many perform poorly and that seems to be acceptable. The information management group is probably the least skilled and appears to be a dreadful place to work - poor leadership, bad tool selection, runs by the "just rig it and make it work" principle.

    Huntington made an effort to take our .NET development area 'Agile'. But the organization couldn't understand something that wasn't command and control and most of the truly talented left for other, more progressive organizations. Twelve month 'Projects' that last for 3, 4, or 5 years and never finish are the norm for any major development efforts. It seems that instead of changing the burnt out light bulbs, Huntington IT is more comfortable declaring darkness the acceptable standard and patting themselves on the back for a successful implementation of Darkness 1.0

    If you want to grow a career - go somewhere else. If you are at the end of your career and are comfortable coasting through the last couple years without making waves, it's absolutely the place for you.
