    Used to be a great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits and great staff. They really had their stuff together but in the end it all fell apart

    ConsOne word. PNC. They came in and pretty much ruined everything. Technology went back 10 years.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good experience

    Tax Intern (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsGood experience working there while in college. Got to learn how corporate America works. People taught me many things about working in the business world.

    ConsSeemed to be very political at times. Seems like some people played favorites and got promoted and others that did not play the game just stayed put.

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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    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

    Too bad NCC is gone

    EVP (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    Pros* People who had a real devotion to NCC
    * Sales force had a real interest in the customers of the bank
    * Genuine support for the markets it served

    Cons* Highly silo-focused organization
    * Leadership that was detached from details (ala risk management)
    * Very short-sighted approach to regulator and street-management

    Advice to Senior Management* Don't wait until it's too late to enact change
    * When change is necessary, get on with it
    * Leaders are appreciated for leading, not for being nice - don't be nasty for the sake of being nasty and don't be nice when hard-nosed is required

    National City Buyout by PNC affects workers

    Manager Trainee (Current Employee)
    Dayton, OH

    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.

    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsGreat culture
    Excellent opportunities
    Strategically focused to grow the business
    Willing to let managers own and drive the business

    ConsPoor decision/timing on the sub prime market
    NCB's acquisition by PNC has identified some cultural business philosophy difference between the two groups.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your pledge to observe, learn, and analyze the practices in both NCB and PNC before you decide how to proceed.

    ProsGreat benefits
    Flexible work schedule
    Generous expense account
