    Pros

    Great people, very customer - focused

    Cons

    compensation plan for bankers is nearly impossible to make, high pressure to cross-sell products. Weekly "blitzes" with unnecessary pressure and unrealistic expectations. Staffing issues with some branches understaffed and others overstaffed. No upward mobility at the Branch level

    Advice to Management

    Either revise the incentive plan for bankers or up the base salary!!!!!

    Pros

    My team was amazing. Very friendly people.

    Cons

    Once you quit, they screw you over. They lie, management is horrible, and HR is useless. I gave two weeks written notice, cleaned up my workload before leaving, and updated my former team on the work I was leaving behind. HR informed me that I wouldn't be paid for commission I earned in June (even though I was leaving at the end of July), commission earned in July, or Q2 bonus. August of 2014, they changed their pay cycles. Huntington pays employees bi-weekly, but during this change in cycles, there was a pay period where we only got paid for one week instead of two. We were told in writing that we would receive the additional pay upon the end of your employment with the bank. I called to confirm this after I left and HR denied this. Now they owe me a week of pay, June commission, July commission, and Q2 bonus. Poor flexibility Poor communication between departments If you're not laterally moved, your pay will decrease

    Advice to Management

    I don't even know where to start. Pay your employees! Regardless of how much they love what they do, people work in order to be paid. Your turnover rate will continue to skyrocket if you don't change this. There's no reason why after three years of employment, I only received a $0.30 raise, but as soon as I informed you that I was quitting, there were thousands of dollars available to add to my salary.

    Pros

    Benefits and compensation were good.

    Cons

    Encouraged dishonest sales tactics; HR allowed management to get away with bullying employees even after being reported...so retaliation was a big factor.

    Advice to Management

    Take classes on "Ethics" and actually practice what you learned in class...don't just go because you're being paid to attend the class.

    Pros

    Great company Culture friendly people

    Cons

    No Diversity in upper management. If you are a person on color you will never make it to a management level.( In the insurance department only) regardless of how good you work and how mush experience and education you have. The manager over sales pick here favorites, The must. The only way a person of color has a chance for upper management is in the banking customer service and branch department.

    Advice to Management

    Don't judge a person by their race.If they are very qualified for the position then give that person a chance. You current sales manager is Stuck in the 1950's ( in the insurance department). You need to reevaluation the management.

    Pros

    If your in need to make new friends Huntington is a great place to work. The only great thing Huntington has going for themselves, they hire young professionals. Me and a few of my new friends even hang out after hours for food, drinks, bowling, shopping, concerts etc. Benefits and health insurance are good.

    Cons

    Broken promises, long work hours (your hours just got longer and also don't request PTO), horrible management, demanding sales (you have to make the goal to get paid, any work you do under the goal U don't get paid), understaffed all the time (management confuses understaffed with ability to get promoted), annoying conference calls (it's time to put UR hand out to get smacked), because your in instore u must sell your self to the customers because they are frightened to trust u make a deposit, update the system the system looks like it was built in the 60's

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees stop treating them like dirt! Close all in store branches.

    Pros

    There are opportunities to advance your career.

    Cons

    The bank is chronically understaffed and not quick to fill positions. This leads to up to 13 hour days with no break! It also causes people to quit because they are overworked which only perpetuates the problem. The teller jobs have become less about customer service and too much about sales. And the bankers job has unrealistic sales goal expectations. Being that the overall branch has a certain goal and only one banker on staff to meet it. There isn't enough time in the day!

    Advice to Management

    Get better management in the Youngstown area specifically. Too many of the traditional branch managers get away with treating employees harshly and blatantly breaking policies with no repercussions because they have been with the company since it was Sky Bank or even Mahoning Bank. Instore districts need managers that are encouraging rather than intimidating.

    Pros

    Location is convenient and free parking at the Easton location

    Cons

    Workload is not manageable in a standard 40 hour work week. Most IT professionals at Huntington Bank are working 50 - 60 hours/week. If you are on vacation, you are expected to monitor your email and address any issues.

    Advice to Management

    Work/Life Balance needs to be addressed.
