Program moving in the right direction

Financial Analyst Development Program (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA (US)

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

ProsFinancial Analyst Development Program (FADP) is moving in the right direction. Really good exposure to senior management. Pay is definitely competitive for the location (although finance makes less than many other areas of the bank).

ConsA lot of the experience is how lucky you get with your rotations; some are much better than others. If you get lucky with your rotations then the experience will be good, but otherwise watch out. There is very little opportunity for "finance" work as the vast majority of it is accounting based.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure analysts are placed in a rotation that NEEDS someone so they aren't just sitting around. Look to hire more people with accounting backgrounds instead of finance.

Careful selecting benefits as soon as possible

Bilingual Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA (US)

I worked at PNC Financial Services Group full-time for less than a year

ProsIt was a job, it taught me a lot of useful information about government regulations on the banking industry, some have since changed.

ConsIt took me three weeks to select benefits and when I did, my paycheck took benefits price from day one, no one advised any employees that would happen, before, during or after.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe crystal clear on how the payment of benefits happens, from when to when and whether selecting them the first day or 3 weeks in does not matter.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great place to work if you plan on having a career in the banking industry

Bank Teller (Current Employee)
Baltimore, MD (US)

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

ProsThe management that I've worked with have been very accommodating of employees' lives outside of work, the customers are generally very cordial and fun to talk to, and there is a lot of upward mobility. It's a wonderful place to build business and personal relationships with the community. The quality of your experience there will definitely depend on the people you work with.

ConsThere is relatively low pay and incredibly stringent sales goals to meet. Oftentimes, there is poor communication between district managers and the branches they work with. There also tends to be pretty high turnover, as many people are just looking for work while they go to school.
