    Pros

    Relaxed environment, good benefits(in addition to the usual 401k and health insurance, there's a pension program, employee stock purchase program, education reimbursement, etc)

    Cons

    Just like most bigger companies, things move slowly and everything requires 10,000 approvals

    Advice to Management

    More salary transparency, #talkpay

    Pros

    Its a great company I really enjoy coming to my job everyday, working with great staff also helps.
    401k Match and still get a pension
    I do get feedback from senior management which is great they do show appreciation

    Cons

    Medical Insurance did get worse the past few years, it used to be really good when I first started now its all high deductibles.

    Do not like the vision insurance either

    vacation is on the low end only 2 weeks until you get to 5 years service

    Retail Banking is very underpaid I think

    Pros

    overall culture, benefits, fair pay

    Cons

    Career growth can be hindered due to different political alliances within a working unit

    Advice to Management

    PNC has delivered big to the shareholders by driving their teams very hard. I left in large part due to burn out. I liked working there, but there was never time to enjoy the successes and management only saw successes as undervaluing a unit or a person who clearly needed a bigger challenge and goal in their mind. PNC is an awesome company, but has the ability to become a meat grinder after so long. Over all though, it is a very good company.

    Pros

    Decent bonus for financial specialist FINALLY!!!

    Cons

    Branch managers who do not participate in achieving branch goals. Mine sat in her car almost half the day and talked on her sell phone. Never could have weekends off because it was important that management had a good life work balance and, had to work all the late nights. Good life work balance only pertained to assistant manage and branch manager.

    Advice to Management

    Make the branch mangers accountable
