    Run away very, very fast!

    Financial Advisor (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsAverage mid-size bank. Well known brand.

    ConsManagement is poor, from the top on down. Local (Regional, Area) managers are all washouts from other banking institutions. Poor products. Not competitive pricing. IT is operating like it is 1998.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit so someone more qualified may be hired.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a good company to work for

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lack of leadership, in HR

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsFairly large organization and there are some very strong people

    ConsSome good people within HR but HR leadership is disruptive, destructive, incompetent, and ineffective.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemove or reassign current HR leadership.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Internship Review

    Key Banc Capital Markets Internship (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsLast week, I started my internship with Key Banc Capital Markets in Cleveland, OH and it has introduced me to every single sector of finance. There are informative meetings where we learn about every single group in the Capital Markets goup at Key.

    ConsSometimes there are long hours

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the internship program and expand accross the whole country.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work.

    Worker Bee (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsMost associates were team players and very personable, others - senior management if you did not click in their clique you were an outsider.

    Conslots of cliques and favoritism.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPeople today want to stay employed, work hard and do the right thing. Too many seasoned people are let go so younger - lower salary people can take over. Lets hope the economy picks up so more folks can get to work...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent workplace, very nice boss

    Market Risk Analyst (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsWorking at the trading floor as a market risk analyst provides excellent opportunity to interact with
    LOB daily and learn the business. The boss cares about the employees and is fully supportive in improving the employees' technical skills by reimbursing for conference attendance, books, professional exams (CFA, FRM, PRM),... etc. Fun to work with the team.

    ConsWe are working very hard to fix system issues and would be glad to see our incentive compensation aligned with the excellent work we have accomplished.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Worked with some incompetent and uncooperative gossipers and haters-my apologies to those who aren't

    Accountant (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsA 40 hour week and good location.

    ConsVery hostile environment, almost no opportunity for professional growth. Promotions not based on merits. No one shares knowledge or information, everyone protects their territory fanatically. No direction from management to new employees-half the time because they are clueless, half the time on purpose. Because of obsolete systems and company culture it's hard to get rid of some unproductive people with outdated skills who have worked there for many years and practically "own" the place. They will do everything they can to attack new talent. If you want more from your life and career and want to stay marketable DON'T WORK THERE. Glad i left!

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward and value people with real skills and strong ethics. Figure out why there is so much employee dissatisfaction and make changes. Strong publicity can keep the stock price high only for so long...people bring the real value.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work

    Engineer IV (Current Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsGreat vacation time, and a very good work/life balance. Willing to assist with pursuing continuing education whether it be certifications or college courses. The people are great as well.

    ConsHighly Silo'd environment. Although this is understandable since it is a Financial institution and as such is highly regulated.

    Limited opportunities to branch out and work on other technologies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote from within the company when possible. Limit the amount of outsourcing, particularly the outsourcing to other countries. It very much harms employee morale.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Durable bank with good values

    Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsThe conservative credit culture at Key saved the Bank

    ConsRisk versus reward. The regulatory environment is damaging opportunities for the best banks to grow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSurprise and delight the customer with new products

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
