    Pros

    if you are new to the workforce, if you have no other options, if you live in Pittsburgh, PNC might be the right choice. Anyone who has options, should consider another organization. PNC is looking for the best, but they are not the best organization. They are growing, but they can't handle the growth.

    Cons

    Its like working at HFC or Radio Shack, sell financial services like you're selling ipods. The organization has no respect for the employee, it is basically a sweat shop that sells the flavor (product) of the month. There is no consideration of the client.

    Advice to Management

    Quit, take leadership training at reputable business schools. Pitttsburgh employees should not be resentful because the company is acquiring banks in other geographic areas, being rude to the new employees in these areas is so divisive and contributes to the terrible disjointed atmosphere. PNC is too big for its own good.

    Pros

    Benefits and salary seems to be competitive other than that it is a short term company to work.

    Cons

    If you work in the retail bank you are in constant fear of job loss. All about the numbers not much about the customer or the employee. Not really anywhere to go in the company you can move from branch to branch but, not much chance of moving up or into a new line of business. Most upper management on the regional level and market level are not very honest with the persons that work below them. More talk but, no substance behind what they say. You can work hard and meet or exceed your goals, have the best attitude but, never be promoted or even have the option of a review. Even when you apply within the company not based on employees record or even attitude you will still not get ahead. You always have the option to discuss other opportunities but, they don't exsist for the most of the employees.

    If you don't care about moving up and learning more then it is the place to be but, if you want growth and honesty then it is not the place to be. There are many long term employees but, there is know even way of managing one region can be great and the next terrible. Management treatment varies a great deal from the retail banking to other lines of business. All about the sales and numbers I suppose that is what banking is about. They seem to be missing a great deal of opportunity to have really great employees and more dedicated customers. It seems that one of the reasons that the country is having this financial crisis is that all retail banking employees working some form of commission and you end up having many great employees not doing what's right for the customer or the bank just for a few extra dollars in their pay checks. Commision and banking don't mix you end up with a great deal of bad behavior from regional managers down to the tellers.

    Advice to Management

    Start to be honest about what you say and start to really value your good employees. You can say the words but, if they are just words with no real meaning then you end up with just average employees and they are not going to give 100% when they know the not being treat with honesty and respect.
