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

Pros

Great work/life balance. Management works hard to keep employees happy given their resources. Good tech support. Management is supportive of taking other jobs within PNC to advance your career.

Cons

Very difficult to move up the pay scale, even after promotions and rise in pay grade because HR is very strict with certain rules. Slow moving company.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Can certainly meet some great customers and develop good relationships. If you get into a solid branch with little banker competition, you can make decent incentive. But that is very rare. Bank holidays are nice and you can still purchase a week of vacation which is worth it to most, but only if approved by the branch manager.

    Cons

    Upper management is looking to cut costs everywhere since they lost all the overdraft fee income among other things. Customers are squeezed for every cent they have ($10 for a cashier's check? REALLY?) They short the branches of full staffing to save every penny they can and then have a fit if your customer services scores aren't up to par. Management knows customer traffic is shrinking and is promoting ATM and electronic use to cut costs. It's funny b/c they tell us how great it is, but then they are promoting something that will put almost everyone in the branch out of work. In every position but teller, you'll have a list of reports and forms to fill out to keep track of your time and micro manage you until they're blue in the face. Don't look for a raise no matter how well you do. Most managers do not do much besides micro manage and threaten write ups....But as I said, there are a few that will go out on a limb and support thier branch and employees. Branch hours are inconsistent around the whole territory. If you're looking for a branch manager position, lately most hires have come from outside PNC. If you want to move up, you have to go somewhere outside of the company as they rarely promote and have ELIMINATED most of the assistant branch managers from branches. I do want to add that I have heard and seen the culture is a much different and more employee friendly when you get out east, away from the Wisconsin-Chicago market. I'm sure that's a direct reflection of the current uninspiring area management trying to take over the market by force. There is an Employee Engagement survey twice a year, but if you answer honestly, you'll be hounded and harrassed until you get tired of it and just give 5's so that they leave you alone....for a minute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the production of your employees and treat them as valued people. Make employee comments and concerns a real target of focus instead of just acting like they matter. It's sad how low employee morale is around the whole area. Everyone has their eyes and ears open just waiting for the next nonsense to present itself.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Not so good working environment . too much of back stabbing and very big lack of communication between departments.

    Cons

    Bad management. No concern for employees. True corporate cruelty towards employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get rid of the managers who have no clue about management.
