    I worked at Huntington National Bank full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement if you stay two years after payout

    Cons

    Management at Huntington Insurance is horrible. Higher management is not educated and run the place more like a labor plant then a professional atmosphere. Most of the people who work here really don't want to be and are waiting to retire. Management spy's on all of its employees and will even go into the restrooms to keep tags on you. It's insane.

    This is not a good place for someone looking to advance your career, more of just a paycheck and then move on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue.

    Pros

    Customer focused organization and associates were generally helpful and want to do a good job. Good customer service and retail operations.

    Cons

    Huntington struggles in the market place with too many banks in their footprint. Senior management focused on cutting costs and associates. Limited career advancement opportunities. Question Huntington's ability to survive with limited asset and revenue growth.

    Pros

    The only positive I can see is from learning this side of the business.

    Cons

    Everything. The systems are old and very outdated. Management is poor and the people running the place have no idea what they are doing. There is no promotional opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all the managers in this group and start over with people who know what they are doing. I should not know more than my manager and lead.

    Pros

    Offer people from all backgrounds a chance to get into banking at a decent salary.

    Cons

    Since stating less than 12 months ago, the incentive plan has been changed 4 times. Just when everyone figures out how to get their bonus, they change it again, lowering what everyone can make. The I store branches have horrible hours and a turnover rate over 50%. Upper management has no clue what they are doing. They seem to put bandages on the problems rather than fix the problem. Back office support is horrible and technology is 3-5 years behind other institutions. I would stay away from this company as the stress level that they place on you to meet the unrealistic goals is overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your front line employees and get ideas of what they need to be successful so that you can provide the proper back office support. When problems are brought to your attention, fix them, don't just wait for the employees to leave.

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salaries are above the industry standard, health benefits that are offered are better than what is offered at othe companies.

    Cons

    High turnover, terrible management in the In-Store environment, long hours, if you're in management say good bye to your family and friends. They preach a work life balance, but in actuality want you there every minute that the branch is open. They will lie to get you to join the company and make promises they never intend to follow through on. District managers in the instore world are inept in all facets of the job. The brow beat until you quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like human beings not work horses. Take a long hard look at your "work/life balance" statement because the instore district managers do not follow that in the least bit. Re-evaluate the structure in the instore environment, there is no need to be open 12 hours a day when you have traditional offices within a mile open at the same time. You are paying too much in overhead expenses with your extended hours and it seems fiscally irresponsible.

    I worked at Huntington National Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good hometown bank. They do a lot to support numerous organizations and events in the community. Whoever runs that area must be awesome or have a huge budget.

    Cons

    While they know their core bank business they're not really sure what other businesses they want to be in- Mortgages? Capital markets? Investments? They just don't want to invest the money or time into growing those businesses. Every single employee does the jobs of at least two or three people- they're about as lean as they can be...earnings should be way better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a training program, and a mentor program. Figure out what you want to do and do it. Do something with the stagnant older generation of employees who've been there 25yrs and aren't contributing to growing the company.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, lots of learning by doing, you have the opportunity to meet with higher level managers and executives.

    Cons

    Long hours and on-call weekends. If you are new to banking one thing I noticed was a lack of investment in training tools to help associates better understand the industry and understand specific banking tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was discouraging to see so many executives and managers talk about how much they enjoyed working at the bank and how great the bank was only to leave for another bank weeks or months later.
