    I worked at National City as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Highly organized IT department using true design and test teams. Smart, focused people doing interesting conceptual work.

    Cons

    The bank was killed by sub-prime loans, the corpse was given to PNC Bank by the FEDS. I was there at the end when whole floors of people were laid off at once. Kinda' like the end of the world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    [sub-prime loans], if it sounds to good to be true, it is. Greed is one of the several deadly sins, remember, pigs get feed, hogs get slaughtered. When I looked at a Condo loan with an ARM and a balloon. I knew there was a problem.

    Good benefits and great staff. They really had their stuff together but in the end it all fell apart

    One word. PNC. They came in and pretty much ruined everything. Technology went back 10 years.
