    the location in the midwest is not that appealing except for people from the area. other than that, the place is a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do more 360 degree peer reviews which will help management understand some of the ways they can improve the company

    I have been working at National City

    Pros

    Traditional, 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.

    Cons

    Any 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 ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to talent - not just tenure

    I have been working at National City

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Unfortunately 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 ManagementAdvice

    I 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.

    I have been working at National City

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Merger 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 ManagementAdvice

    Get 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.
