    Great Company but little room to advance as it all depends on your CIQ scores, unless you know ppl.

    Pros

    A good place to work in a beautiful city. Department leaders are supportive and colleagues all have good background and experience. Compensation is satisfying.

    Cons

    Too big is the bank that it's kind of hard to get promotion in a short time.

    Pros

    Great on boarding, most branches have an amazing company culture, good at negotiating pay.

    Cons

    Not all branches are oriented around the companies culture and are absolutely a nightmare to work at, as mine was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose your regional managers wisely. If a branch is seeing to much turnover as mine was you have a problem that can only come from management and long term employees. Don't throw people into a branch without acquitted mentoring if there is no one available to guide them.

    I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good solid company and they are very finacially sound due to conservative banking practices.

    Cons

    Pressures mount every day to sell, sell, sell and hit the Insight button. You are asked to invade the clients privacy and look to see where they spend their money and look at a lot of personal data to try and sell them. It has become a very high coaching environment and the benefits are getting worse. No raises and the bonuses have become impossible to obtain. Highly micromanaged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back off the sells pressure and the high coaching and micromanaging. Stop forcing people to be unethical just to obtain referals and sales. We used to be a Sigma 6 branch and this time we will probabalky slip to a 3. After 7 years it really is sad to see how we have become just like Wells or Chase.

    It was an OK place to start your career but the work-life balance doesn't exist.

    Pros

    Good benefits including medical, dental, 401k match, and vacation days.

    Cons

    Standard political banking culture and little room for growth unless you suck up. The new corporate plan is to cut employee costs by constantly restructuring incentive plans and making the metrics complicated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Usually great managers but they have their hands tied do to corporate decisions.

    I worked at PNC Financial Services Group as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Training was helpful and hands on. It made you feel more comfortable about going straight into a customer service role.

    Cons

    As a traveling teller, you never really got to interact with other employees. At times, it was the grunt job that did what no one else wanted to do. Lots of downtime in between customers at slow branches which made for long, boring days with nothing to do.

    Pros

    If you live in or near a bigger city, you will have more opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    No support from upper management to vent grievances. If you do, you are outcasted. Limited support structure for branches in WI.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to take a hard look at the support structure that is provided to the retail branch network. Creating more pressure on high producing bankers to produce more while not holding those not producing accountable is not the proper way to run a business!
