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

    Pros

    The culture has a phenomenal work life balance. The company is very helpful for interns in terms of allowing them to work with other departments to find their niche. Colleagues were friendly and customer service was awesome. Seminars are always encouraged to keep employees afloat of the ever-changing work force.

    Cons

    The specific location that I was at only have two student interns, which was unfortunate. We never met or spoke with one another like the other interns at other locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create the same intern program across the board.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Bank retail branch hours, PTO and paid holidays are nice.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment. Not enough time for mentors to actually mentor because of the busy branch. Possitive first week but the was let down once I started the job because of the lack of training and being pushed in right away. Pros do not out weigh cons. I couldn't stay there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company statements are goos but follow through with that respect and care to the teller level, especially first time tellers.

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people (low level from district managers down) really care but upper management doesn't give a single thought to the lives of the employees that have been duped into believing that this is the way that banking should be done.

    Cons

    There is a tyrant working amoung us. They talk about the shadow of the leader, but the leader knows nothing about what really happens at his own bank because he has scared every employee from his own Sr Executive committee down so much that noone has the balls to tell him what he needs to hear. He and his "plans" have done nothing to further the position of his shareholders and infact has demolished what was once a wonderful place to work. He needs to admit to himself that he doesn't know how to make real revenue and that expense cutting is not the way to pull the wool over the eyes of Wall Street. Wall Street can not be tricked, especially by an egomaniac that believes that his way is always best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management has no clue what is really going on. They will see a mass exiduce soon and then wonder why. Work lide balance means nothing to them. They have no clue what a relationship bank is because they are product pushers that have pissed off their own customers by doing just that. They claim to "do the right thing" but don't follow it themselves. This CEO has done nothing but erode the very fiber of this bank as well as the feeling of truly doing the right thing for their customers and colleagues. The sales force is beat down on a daily basis after doing evetything they can. Steve has ruined everything good about this company and the shareholders should have been rewarded by now but haven't with this small time $9 stock. Start listening to your people rather than ruling them like Vobst did from his ivory tower many yeard ago. Steve has given up every bit of fee income by painting us into a corner with 24hr grace making anyone who might have purchased us years ago run because they can not win with this bank. Who can buy us now and roll back this ridiculous 24 hr grace and win? What a mess! Sr Management does not get rid of those doing nothing, they keep shifting bodies around like they will just do better in another place but really don't have the experience to actually change anything. The shifting seems to be so that Steve can stay the tyrant, OCD, kibg that his insecure little mind needs until he has completely destroyed a once profitable mid weat banking empire. Congratulations for getting what you wanted, far too much money to slap a coat of paint on the place and thinking it will make a difference.
