Pros

Excellent benefits, "banker's hours", positive work environment, great clients

Cons

Very poor management especially from the regional position. Noone would listen to valid complaints from all of the staff employees and turned a blind eye to the laziness and poor work ethic of the branch manager and assistant managers. Promotions were based on who you know and not what you know. PNC has lost several great employees due to mismanagement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rotate managers within the district to keep people fresh and on their toes. It seems current managers become complacent and lack important interpersonal skills. Utilize the Gallup Survey to truly identify problems in the workplace that can be easily fixed. Give everyone a fair opportunity for promotions, not just close coworkers. Also, try to understand the full situation when employees contact Human Resources regarding a problem - dont take the manager's word for everything.

    Pros

    The best part about PNC was the five weeks of training. The one and only great time I've ever had with this company. The training department are excellent and the co-workers makes the job less hectic. Built great relationships with fellow co-workers and customers.

    Cons

    The feel that five weeks of BASIC training in many different categories is enough for you to step out on your own and get the job done with little to no help. Training should constantly continue outside of the training facility into the branches, especially if you were hired with no experience in banking, mortgages, sales, etc... just hired because you have a great personality. There is also no quality leadership. Management comes and goes and FSC's pretty much runs the branch with no breaks. Not enough quality meetings with good feedbacks or thorough brainstorming on how to improve in numbers and gallop scores..just a threat of termination every time numbers are not met. Job description nothing like what was disclosed in interview nor in training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please...please...please thoroughly scan and choose wisely in picking management to run a team. Numbers does not make you an effective manager...especially when your numbers were not even high as an FSC. If you are going to hire people with no type of banking background or sales background whatsoever then be sure to send them to additional training or have your BRANCH MANAGERS work one-on-one with them to make their weak points stronger. You guys just need better management......period!!!!!
