    Pros

    Smart people who aren't filled to the brim with ego.

    The downside of a company better suited to lifestyle is slightly less pay

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity, especially early in your career. Great focus on work life balance and most departments/managers are flexible when they can be.

    Cons

    Benefits got progressively worse and more expensive, but were still better than you will find in most places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to reign in the rising costs of benefits. There might be valid reasons for why they increase so much year over year but to the average employee its simply money lost.

    I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about working for PNC in the Indianapolis territory is the people. As a new employee you are supported by multiple business partners, classroom and online trainings and have the ability to shadow as well. PNC puts a lot of time and effort into making sure you have the support you need to hit the ground and also further develop your career within the company. Many companies will tell you they promote from within but PNC is one of the few who walks the walk.

    They also offer good befits. 4% 401k match and 3% pension. You start off with 2 weeks paid vacation with the ability to buy an additional 2 weeks of vacation after you've been with the company for a couple of years.

    Cons

    PNC could do a better job marketing their flagship products to clients. Although they sell themselves, many clients don't realize we offer mobile deposit or professional investment advice because we don't do a good enough job getting the word out to prospects.

    Also, a recent change in health benefits has been a drawback as well. PNC now only offers high deductible health care plans. I personally rarely need to go to the doctor so it doesn't effect me much. My premiums are actually cheaper, but I can see how this could be an issue for some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep bringing optimistic personable talent on board and continue your promise to promote from within.

    Constructively; put some additional funding into sales and marketing. PNC is one of the largest banks in the industry and has top of the line technology/products... but most people don't know that. We can attract new customers and continue to grow the share of wallet with our existing client base by putting our word out there. PNC needs to differentiate itself amongst the Chase's of the world.
