    I worked at Huntington National Bank part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Bank retail branch hours, PTO and paid holidays are nice.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment. Not enough time for mentors to actually mentor because of the busy branch. Possitive first week but the was let down once I started the job because of the lack of training and being pushed in right away. Pros do not out weigh cons. I couldn't stay there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company statements are goos but follow through with that respect and care to the teller level, especially first time tellers.

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people (low level from district managers down) really care but upper management doesn't give a single thought to the lives of the employees that have been duped into believing that this is the way that banking should be done.

    Cons

    There is a tyrant working amoung us. They talk about the shadow of the leader, but the leader knows nothing about what really happens at his own bank because he has scared every employee from his own Sr Executive committee down so much that noone has the balls to tell him what he needs to hear. He and his "plans" have done nothing to further the position of his shareholders and infact has demolished what was once a wonderful place to work. He needs to admit to himself that he doesn't know how to make real revenue and that expense cutting is not the way to pull the wool over the eyes of Wall Street. Wall Street can not be tricked, especially by an egomaniac that believes that his way is always best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management has no clue what is really going on. They will see a mass exiduce soon and then wonder why. Work lide balance means nothing to them. They have no clue what a relationship bank is because they are product pushers that have pissed off their own customers by doing just that. They claim to "do the right thing" but don't follow it themselves. This CEO has done nothing but erode the very fiber of this bank as well as the feeling of truly doing the right thing for their customers and colleagues. The sales force is beat down on a daily basis after doing evetything they can. Steve has ruined everything good about this company and the shareholders should have been rewarded by now but haven't with this small time $9 stock. Start listening to your people rather than ruling them like Vobst did from his ivory tower many yeard ago. Steve has given up every bit of fee income by painting us into a corner with 24hr grace making anyone who might have purchased us years ago run because they can not win with this bank. Who can buy us now and roll back this ridiculous 24 hr grace and win? What a mess! Sr Management does not get rid of those doing nothing, they keep shifting bodies around like they will just do better in another place but really don't have the experience to actually change anything. The shifting seems to be so that Steve can stay the tyrant, OCD, kibg that his insecure little mind needs until he has completely destroyed a once profitable mid weat banking empire. Congratulations for getting what you wanted, far too much money to slap a coat of paint on the place and thinking it will make a difference.

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and training is well organized.

    Cons

    Compensation is below average and the ability to grow within the company is very difficult. Receive bonus based on customer service score which isn't a good marker of how well you perform

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people more for their time and effort.

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Loved the corporate culture, not too big but not too small. My co-workers are wonderful...real friends. Positive atmosphere for the most part. Wonderful benefits (other than medical insurance...only offer consumer directed high deductible health plans)

    Cons

    Lack of room for upward mobility - depending on what you want to do. Slightly cheap on salary (who isn't these days). Technology is from the stone age!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, they are on the front lines dealing with customers day in and day out. Do not wait until a corporate wide survey slams the bank for what we say week after week in our meetings. Upgrade technology, NOW!

    Pros

    Great opportunities - Diversity - training. The Training cannot be beat , their team is right on top of all changes.

    Cons

    The salary is less than desirable. The mid-level managers need to be coached on compassion and retaining employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to recognize your lower level employees - Awards - Banquets - increased salary would be beneficial.

    Pros

    Strong leadership at the top and a deep bench of future leaders ready to take on key roles like CEO and President of Retail.

    Cons

    I'm tired. Really tired. The hours we put in are long and packed full of productivity. Whatever happened to "banker's hours"? LOL

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep aiming high.
