    I worked at PNC Financial Services Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    overall culture, benefits, fair pay

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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

    Tons of opportunity to make money and move up in the company. PNC has invested a lot of money and man hours into the Financial Specialist role, so there is plenty of support.

    Cons

    PNC isn't in any hurry to get you up and running when you start with the company. It took almost 3 months to get all of my licenses transferred and get the required training done to get my rep code.

    Pros

    PNC offers great training classes and mentoring. It is a bank that is focusing on establishing relationships with clients rather on numbers. As in any retail banking job you do have to meet certain goals but it is a fun process. My branch has a great team with a great manager.

    Cons

    none that I could think of.

    Pros

    Great company and benefits. Retail banking is an industry that is constantly evolving, and has become geared heavily towards sales. If you want to do that - this is for you!

    Cons

    Working with the public can be very demanding and requires a lot of patience. You will be treated poorly by your customers, but must remain a "five star" employee at all times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more of an incentive to stay and meet goals with better pay.

    Pros

    Great company values, good benefits, pay is good for starting out in the financial services industry

    Very difficult to meet goals. Success is largely based on location.

    Make goals vary based on location. Individual goals are the same for everyone whether they are in a busy branch in a rich area, or a small and slow branch.
