    Pros

    Competitive base salary..... that's all.

    Cons

    Systems are lacking, far behind the times. Procedure is outdated. Products offered can not compare to those at larger banks. Mandatory that you bank with Huntington to receive direct deposit. To be perfectly honest if you have experience in banking do not waste your time, you will be highly disappointed. Work life balance is horrible, never leaving as scheduled, working multiple weekends. Sales incentive is designed to avoid paying for the work done. Products that cater to lower income but you will only get paid if balances are maintained like individuals with higher income. Sales that require the most amount of work pay little to nothing but those sales drive the branch's bottom line so your branch won't be profitable without them. Word of advise, other banks may offer slightly less in base pay but don't allow Huntington to convince you that you will be happier there. You will not. I read reviews of the company before I accepted the offer and ignored those that were negative. If you do the same you will regret it,

    Advice to Management

    Invest in making your products the best products available instead of making fun of your competition. Bottom line, the commercials are funny and so is the fact that Huntington believes that they are superior in anyway

    Pros

    immediate insurance, paid time off

    Cons

    no incentive, ultra low pay in certain areas, management lies about everything and puts people down some of which could be considered harassment, poor structure. If you report anything there will be repercussions. The list could go on. I am a long time employee and would not recommend anyone work here.

    Advice to Management

    Higher management needs to 're-evaluate the pay scales and check into certain areas that middle management run alone. In these areas are very miserable unhappy, overworked employees.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. Steve Steinour is a fantastic CEO and leader.

    Cons

    IT Leadership is extremely weak and has instilled a culture of motivation by fear. Unless you are from CIG at Chase, don't expect any opportunities for advancement or career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. Create opportunities for mobility and upward growth.

    Pros

    The bonus structure is really great! The training is fantastic for the job that you do!

    Cons

    If you want to head back to a drama filled high school cafeteria, then please come on down! I worked for the company for three years and in that time I got my job threatened at least once a month for this or that. The training opportunities are fantastic, but what they teach you in the training and how the offices actually work are impossibly different. The sales goals are realistic, but they pit different channels against each other and it becomes a scrabbling fight in the mud over sales, and what's best for your bottom line often becomes more important than what's best for the client.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to expand at the rate you have been, split your districts -- it's easier for colleagues to get 1:1 time with people they trust when their DMs don't have to travel 2.5-3 hours to visit the branches. And please, PLEASE stop pitting your traditional channel and your in-store channel against each other.

    Pros

    Sales experience, training and average benefits.

    Cons

    Complicated menagerie of systems and never ending reporting. Incentive plan is terrible! Years of tweaking only serves to make it harder to earn anything extra. Overbloated goals and unfair management (moving their favorites around to keep them looking good) leads to high turnover and a bad taste for the bank.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out all the extra middle management you have added and get a decent incentive plan.

    Pros

    Decent pay, call center has call center hours.

    Cons

    Way to much gossip. It's out of control. It's worse the high school. Bullying is horrible and the victim is treated like a lier. And ends up looking their job for making trouble.
    And once you have a target on your head management pushes you out the door.
    Poor poor management. The good ones are great but they are few.

    This provides evidence when you see the high turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you are watching out for your team. Truly invest your time with them and it will pay off for you.
    Remember that a good manager has great employees. Bad management produces bad work environment, bad employees, and high turnover rate.

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers very dedicated to supporting their customers

    Cons

    Terrible leadership-people get promoted based on favoritism, not results or performance

    Advice to Management

    Don't advertise things like '24 hour grace' and 'no fee free checking', then staff branches with a skeleton crew where they can't take care of people.
