    Pros

    nice clients and work partners

    Cons

    Regional managers that don't keep the best people and do keep the lesser employees. All five of the best core employees are no longer there.

    Advice to Management

    Clients get attached to hard working goal achieving people and prefer that they are not moved around from one branch to another. I had clients follow me to three branches.

    Pros

    PNC has good benefits and there is definitely the opportunity to grow and have a long career with this organization. Salaries are fair, but get the best on the way in because raises are minimal.

    Cons

    Management can make work unpleasant for staff by having unattainable goals or plain silly ones, e.g., at one point they said you couldn't go home until you met your quota for new account openings even though you still had to close the branch at its regular time.

    Advice to Management

    Do more realistic coaching and less brow beating. People do not respond well to threats and most want to meet goals, they just need help in learning how to.

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers and customers
    Great bank with respected reputation
    Safeguards in place to encourage growth and development

    Cons

    High turnover rate
    (Perhaps due to) Low pay

    Advice to Management

    It would probably be more cost-effective to pay your employees more - even for entry level jobs because a good employee ultimately saves the bank from a host of fraudulent activities - because it would greatly reduce the turnover rate.

    Pros

    Truly recognized as a leader within the branch. Many opportunities with this skill set and experience. The company emphasizes internal referrals to the financial consultant.

    Cons

    Misalignment within management. There is a lot of turnover in this role. Things still being figured out as this is a position formed just a few years ago. Vacation time is limited.
