Traditional, conservative; small bank trying to act like one of the big boys

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Cleveland, OH

I have been working at National City

ProsTraditional, conservative; small bank trying to act like one of the big boys. Decent place to work though if you're not super aggressive and need a nice work/life balance.

ConsAny positives that NCB had has now taken a large step back (operationally, compensation-wise, technologically, etc.) due to an even more primitive, conservative PNC Financial.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to talent - not just tenure

National City Buyout by PNC affects workers

Manager Trainee (Current Employee)
Dayton, OH

I have been working at National City

ProsI liked working at National City and felt I had a great opportunity for success. They are committed to the success of the Dayton Ohio area and to the people. I believe that PNC will be great and will continue to operate in a positive manner for all concerned.

ConsUnfortunately the elimination of jobs because of the merger has left many local workers scrambling for lesser paying jobs within the company or unemployed and this leaves a bad taste in the mouth of local customers and former employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think you should revisit your displaced workers and see what additional things you can do to help them. 12 weeks in this economy is certainly appreciated but hardly adequate for the current time of year or economic climate.

When I started it was a good place to work with good people, not any more.

Was A Good Place to Work! (Current Employee)
Saginaw, MI

I have been working at National City

ProsPay was well above average and bonuses were good. 3 weeks vacation plus sick time, 115% match on first 6% in 401k.

ConsMerger with PNC has brought many changes, obviously. The problem is the inability of regional managers to communicate accurate info. Favortism runs rampant in this area as the regional manager does not listen to all the facts of a situation but instead acts upon how she feels. Flat out called me a liar and told me "We were done discussing this" when I tried to explain the situation. I recieved an apology a couple days later when she was proven wrong.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clue. Your people are the key to success. You say your worried about employee engagement and making the PNC brand synonomous with banking, but if your employees hate you and the customers dont trust you that isn't going to happen.
