    Pros

    Great starting pay. You have very loyal clientele that you start to know by name.

    Cons

    Hard to advance unless you become best friends with the DM. Hours make it hard to find a balance in your personal life. Unobtainable expectations for lending, especially when the rates are not competitive.

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for, good benefits, great concept, friendly atmosphere, flexibility.

    Cons

    It’s hard to move up the ladder at Huntington. Politics have a big pull, all depends on your immediate manage, If the manager is not playing fair then you will not move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There have to be checks and balance; fairness should be the driving factor of any decisions. If hiring new management, they have to have people skills if they don't have management experience. To hire new management without at least people skills will lead to fast turn over.

    Pros

    I been there 2 yrs and I have liked it a lot they have worked with me on medical issues and did everything they could to help. The past yr I feel like management is like family.

    Cons

    Very low pay for a high stress job. Sales incentive is a joke the only reason anyone tries to sell is to get off the phone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people roll over vacation time, Really talk to middle management not upper yes men. When rolling out new system take your time to make sure it works instead of just rolling it out and seeing if it works or not.

    Pros

    Colleagues are hardworking dedicated people who care about customers and each other. Company values strong customer service but lacks the technology and drive to deliver it consistently.

    Cons

    Executive and middle managers consistently act out of fear. Executive and middle management are filled with ruthless, mean spirited people who are so afraid of the CEO that they act irrationally and unpredictably.

    Pros

    Company offered many chances for employees to have first chance at job postings

    Cons

    Low pay, and bad management lead me to look for employment elsewhere. Management accuses employees of errors as if they are criminals rather than asking for what happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire competent managers, don't just promote from the "good old boys" club.

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time

    Pros

    Although this largely depends on the management, the schedule is flexible within reason and there are genuine efforts being made to promote nice work/life balance.
    Huntington's products are great and there is a genuine feel that the company truly believes in looking out for their customers. Same can not be said for most of the other larger banks.

    Cons

    Turnover on the retail side is pretty bad and it isn't hard to see why. Huntington does not seem to be concerned with retaining talent. Rather then putting resources into retaining top talent, Huntington makes great efforts to increase their market share, regardless of the cost. Merit increases in retail are scarce, while the management's stance is that employees should focus on selling more and relying on incentive payouts. The biggest problem with this is that incentive payout opportunities decrease on the bi-yearly basis, while goals and expectations keep going up. Additionally, there is a lack of focus on professional development of employees and a huge lack of promotional opportunities. Huntington tends to give preference to hiring candidates from outside, rather than promoting from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on driving down the retention and development of colleagues. Happy and motivated employees will surely sell much better than disgruntled ones. Focus more on celebrating successes rather just pushing for more $$$s
