    Pros

    Good experience working there while in college. Got to learn how corporate America works. People taught me many things about working in the business world.

    Cons

    Seemed to be very political at times. Seems like some people played favorites and got promoted and others that did not play the game just stayed put.

    the location in the midwest is not that appealing except for people from the area. other than that, the place is a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do more 360 degree peer reviews which will help management understand some of the ways they can improve the company

    I worked at National City

    Pros

    Great people, great clothes, great appreciation for nature (i.e. gerbils). Couldn't have had a better experience in my life.

    Cons

    Had a pretty putrid smell whenever you entered the building, they should really get a competent janitor, or spray the building periodically with febreeze.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you're doing. Keep on keeping on. Get her done. Give 110% you're doing great, I like the hustle.

    Pros

    Benefits package and vacation days.

    Cons

    Insufficient training. Advancement if you're drinking buddies with management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's important to listen to your employees, provide better training; don't just promote your drinking buddies to management positions, and need more positive feedback to emplyees.

    I have been working at National City

    Pros

    Traditional, conservative; small bank trying to act like one of the big boys. Decent place to work though if you're not super aggressive and need a nice work/life balance.

    Cons

    Any positives that NCB had has now taken a large step back (operationally, compensation-wise, technologically, etc.) due to an even more primitive, conservative PNC Financial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too bad NCC is gone

    Former Employee - EVP in Cleveland, OH
    Former Employee - EVP in Cleveland, OH

    I worked at National City

    Pros

    * People who had a real devotion to NCC
    * Sales force had a real interest in the customers of the bank
    * Genuine support for the markets it served

    Cons

    * Highly silo-focused organization
    * Leadership that was detached from details (ala risk management)
    * Very short-sighted approach to regulator and street-management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Don't wait until it's too late to enact change
    * When change is necessary, get on with it
    * Leaders are appreciated for leading, not for being nice - don't be nasty for the sake of being nasty and don't be nice when hard-nosed is required

    National City Buyout by PNC affects workers

    I have been working at National City

    Pros

    I liked working at National City and felt I had a great opportunity for success. They are committed to the success of the Dayton Ohio area and to the people. I believe that PNC will be great and will continue to operate in a positive manner for all concerned.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the elimination of jobs because of the merger has left many local workers scrambling for lesser paying jobs within the company or unemployed and this leaves a bad taste in the mouth of local customers and former employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you should revisit your displaced workers and see what additional things you can do to help them. 12 weeks in this economy is certainly appreciated but hardly adequate for the current time of year or economic climate.
