    Former Intern - C&IB Intern in Pittsburgh, PA

    I worked at PNC Financial Services Group as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Every PNC employee that I had to work with, both a daily basis and for special projects, was both impressive and genuinely supportive in my development as a financial professional. I was encouraged to explore the different businesses within the bank and my managers took time daily to answer my questions and give me feedback on my work.

    Cons

    HR can be difficult. It seems like one of the few departments that doesn't have a family feel. Be sure to document every interaction, otherwise you can easily get hurt out in such a big system.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity, especially early in your career. Great focus on work life balance and most departments/managers are flexible when they can be.

    Cons

    Benefits got progressively worse and more expensive, but were still better than you will find in most places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to reign in the rising costs of benefits. There might be valid reasons for why they increase so much year over year but to the average employee its simply money lost.

    Pros

    Moving towards a healthier SDLC and product life cycle methodology in general. Engineering teams are usually mostly competent.

    Cons

    Shared services groups are difficult to work with; a lot of red tape when dealing with engineers outside of your department; business drives the technology more than it should. Product managers/Operations managers too involved in pure technology decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt AGILE.

    Pros

    Good salary, team environment, Some really smart people in their risk management division.

    Cons

    Since it is not a bulge bracket bank, move out after gaining some experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't think of for now

    Pros

    Great work life balance, support higher education and getting certifications, open door policy with managers and your opinion is highly valued with upper management. Grow up great is a great program and allows you to volunteer up to 40 hours a year offsite during work.

    Cons

    Low salary and chances to move up in the company, seem to value hiring contractors rather than promoting within

    Pros

    Coworkers are great. PNC provides opportunities for advancement. There is plenty of training to prepare you for your career.

    Cons

    It is a very stressful work environment. Pay does not reflect the amount of work or stress. Part of your personal bonus is based off of Gallup survey scores for you and your coworkers. One bad apple or one rude/unreasonable customer affects everyone's bonus. There is a ton multitasking and juggling of responsibilities. It is extremely difficult to keep everything in order.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You invest a lot in employee onboarding and training. Invest a little more in salaries to retain employees.
