I have been working at National City

Pros

410k match, health benefits, average vacation time, decent flexibility,

Cons

management has the leadership skills of a gerbil. Raises are almost non-existent. You get less of a raise than inflation. You never know when they are going to fire you because they set ridiculously high goals and then most people don't meet them so they can pick and choose who to fire. Upper management could care less about you as a person or for any career development. This company just passes down work all the way to the bottom. Senior management passes to vice presidents, who then pass on to people who work for them. Therefore people in the middle don't do anything but dish out work then monitor you working.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more conservative. The reason why you had to sell was because you were going to go bankrupt from all the risky loans and outrageous rates. Stop pushing so hard for sales and do it the right way.

    Pros

    Positives:

    The people at NCC are truly best in class. Even though NCC is a big company 30K+, there is a close nit community feel. Additionally, meeting with upper level management is practice that is encouraged.

    Negatives:
    Considering that NCC Is a close nit environment company, your advancement is highly weighted on who you know and who knows you and your abilities.

    Cons

    NCC needs to do a better job at integrating their customer data. Extracting accurate data about customers and market segments can be very difficult and frustrating. There are multiple systems that are not linked.

    The company was recently taken over my PNC. Therefore, I am not sure how many jobs will be cut as a result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be affair to make a decision.

    Pros

    The corporation has a lot of great products for customers.

    Cons

    The bank is in the process of being acquired by PNC. I was an employee that was a part of the merger of MidAmerica Bank into National City in Feb. 2008. Now, we are going through another merger and acquisition, where the close of the sale (to PNC) will be complete by Dec. 31, 2008.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that you do extensive checks on Branch Management. While things are always "peachy" when executive management visits the branch, the moral of the branch is not always what it appears to be.
