Pros

Huntington has a great benefits package and provides some opportunities for professional growth. It is a mid-sized bank so it still has some what of a community oriented mentality.

Cons

The opportunity for advancements are limited especially if you work in retail and want to advance into other areas. The company seems to hire externally versus promoting qualified employees for positions in areas like business banking, the mortgage group or the investment company. Also the performance expectations before I left were not in touch with the economic climate and were very unrealistic.

    Rule with terror. Taking away Michigan's power.

    Pros

    Once in, there was stability. There was always plenty to do. My region had a lot of years experience to learn from (Michigan), but most region's Treasury Management departments were fairly new and clueless. Nice benefits and PTO, but it's just a job - not someplace to vision a career of growth. I hear their Retail products are great, although they are lacking in Commercial product solutions.

    Cons

    - They stopped promoting from within because they wanted "outside" talent, which makes it hard to be devoted to the company.
    - They hired so many layers of management that they were completely out of touch with the customer.
    - They stopped Michigan from being able to use their expertise (when MI's customer wanted the local touch), and wanted all work flow to go to Columbus.
    - Sales goals were obscene, impossible to reach, and punishable.
    - Sadly enough, management used terror to prevent people from voicing complaints, suggestions, or comments of any kind [at the beginning of meetings they started announcing "We will not be taking comments or questions!].
    - There were so many layers of mgmt that they made it clear that if it you didn't fit it with their new rule you were easily replaceable.
    - Only want "thinkers" and no "do-ers." We had an entire product relying on the work of 1 person, so we couldn't sell that product because that person didn't have time to implement it for everyone
    - Our best talent was leaving in droves

    Advice to Management

    Columbus will never hear your advice. They are making the company a vast machine that works like all other banks, instead of the personal touch "bank of the midwest." I think they are trying to make it easy to acquire by another bank.

    Pros

    Great benefits package, great new branding, offering a lot of services unique to Huntington.

    Cons

    This company only truly values it's sales associates. Tellers are told that they are the face of Huntington and the branches wouldn't function without them, yet they are paid as little as possible and treated by far the worst. Tellers are literally not allowed to sit down at all while working. Often times they will work with days off and no lunch breaks on top of that. There is very little consideration given to how hard the tellers really work to keep the office going. Unrealistic sales goals, both on teller and platform. Pay raises are miniscual, if not non-existent. Employees basically have to sell at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are people and should be treated as such, not indentured servants.
