    I worked at Huntington National Bank

    Pros

    Health Insurance, Co-Workers and Customers

    Cons

    Not realistic, When customers come first as they should then you should have adequate staffing to give simply the best service. Poor Quality of equipment for the work that needs processed. Non support with issues or problems only blames the staff for the issues. Non existence of appropriate learning and training unless you can do in between transactions Working past times scheduled on a regular basis due to not having adequate staffing and issues with the systems causing back up of work that still needs done. Do not get the appropriate resources in a time frame that should be in. Do not feel as if those that should be our support ,is there to support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come and work for a few weeks on the busiest times and take a realistic look. At Busy offices not the slower ones.

    Quit trying to do more with less. Giving more responsibility with less staff.

    Pros

    They are a regional Bank. Customer are loyal and friendly to do business. There are always open positions at the bank.

    Cons

    Management Leadership doesn't build on culture with the staff. Lack in leadership to staff communication. Locations of branches and ATM's are not convenient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve on better relationship with tenure employees

    I worked at Huntington National Bank full-time

    Pros

    Many long-term employees who care about what happens to their clients. Outstanding CEO - truly a master that has turned around Huntington's financial performance. Since most everything is broken, there really isn't a lot of pressure to fix things. Broken is the new successful.

    Cons

    Majority of IT management is from Chase. Chase isn't known as a great place to work in Columbus - guess how it is to work at Huntington now. Innovation is hunted down and killed. And Innovators are driven out of the company.

    Few highly skilled developers. Huntington IT is sort of an elephant graveyard - where careers go when they are ready to die.

    Some areas perform well - Architecture comes to mind. Many perform poorly and that seems to be acceptable. The information management group is probably the least skilled and appears to be a dreadful place to work - poor leadership, bad tool selection, runs by the "just rig it and make it work" principle.

    Huntington made an effort to take our .NET development area 'Agile'. But the organization couldn't understand something that wasn't command and control and most of the truly talented left for other, more progressive organizations. Twelve month 'Projects' that last for 3, 4, or 5 years and never finish are the norm for any major development efforts. It seems that instead of changing the burnt out light bulbs, Huntington IT is more comfortable declaring darkness the acceptable standard and patting themselves on the back for a successful implementation of Darkness 1.0

    If you want to grow a career - go somewhere else. If you are at the end of your career and are comfortable coasting through the last couple years without making waves, it's absolutely the place for you.

    Pros

    Good to connect with kids, rewarding to help.

    Cons

    Full time staff are overworked and underpaid, part time staff can get as little as an hour shift. The boss' wife is petty, doesn't inspire trust (can't get students) and mistreats staff. In the past two years they've lost 9 administrators because of how they mistreat. They should go out of business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a team to drive sales and program development, and PAY THEM for it, give full time better weekly hours and delegate work to part time staff to allow for consistency and better hours. Don't think so short-term, every time a full time person left, their "duties" were absorbed into other people's roles without compensation!

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time

    Pros

    None. During the recruiting and interviewing process they will sell you on lies.

    Cons

    Huntington's core values do not align with the leaders that are employed within the organization. Poor hiring strategies, managers are not allowed to interview and hire for their own branch. Individuals are placed at District Managers discretion. A lot of hire aheads with no industry knowledge make for a complete disaster. District Managers and POD leaders offer no positive direction, they thrive off negativity. No work/life balance. Hours seem flexible but are far from it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to who you hire and place in management roles. The West Michigan In-Store division will continue to be a failure if the dictator leadership style does not change. Employee retention will continue to be at an all time low if employees are treated as if they should have no life outside of Huntington Bank i.e enrolling into higher education is frowned upon because it takes away from your availability one night a week. I do not think Huntington Bank is a horrible organization but the West Michigan In-Store is by far the worst place to be employed. Beware if you are being recruited by Huntington for an In-Store position.

    Pros

    Huntington pays better than the industry standard, flexible hours, and if you have any intelligence at all you have a great opportunity for career advancement due to the fact that most of their current employees lack drive and knowledge of the financial industry.

    Cons

    Disorganized, constantly changing the direction of the business, restructured bonus system where you no longer make much, hire people that do not need to be in the banking industry, laughable training that has no real bearing on the true nature of the profession, will constantly look outside to hire individuals into management positions but hey I guess I can't complain about that it's how I was hired by these clowns haha.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time assessing your current employees instead of just hiring other new employees that will also fail.
    Please stop hiring people that worked for RadioShack, Verizon, and Arby's they have no idea that what it takes to be successful in Banking.
    Treat the 10-20% of employees that make the bank actual money better and pay them accordingly.
    Stop referring to yourself as a" National" bank, other banks laugh at you.

    Pros

    Marginal benefits. Their checks clear. It beats working at McDonalds but the pay is about the same. No other positive things.

    Cons

    Anti-commission plans. the company sets up the incentive plan so that it is nearly impossible to earn an incentive. Huntington Bank clearly not this misrepresents job functions and duties during interview process.
