    Pros

    Training, career development, and very flexible work life balance. Worked for numerous companies in the past and none we as good as PNC. PNC is changing and for the better. PNC is one of the best Main Street Banks hands down with great people in all levels. I am proud to work at PNC.

    Cons

    Duplication of work, bad communication all over, not a technology leader, overstaffed in many areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck on turning the Titanic on a dime.

    Pros

    Managers care about career progression/growth of employees.

    Cons

    Weaker compensation justified by cost of living in PA and work/life balance (which is sometimes non existent).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gone are the days of employees staying at one company for 30 years. If you want talent to stay, compensation and approach will have to change to keep up with the times.

    Pros

    For the most part, from middle-management down the company is full of great people. Opportunity for career growth is very prevalent.

    Cons

    At times it feels as if senior leadership is disconnected from the workforce. Goals are often unattainable and put undue pressure on employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize the impact on employees lives as a result of shortsighted planning. Often times programs or job descriptions are changed in a short amount of time causing inconsistency and the employee to be unsettled in their position.

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

    Pros

    There aren't many pros to working here. The work/life balance is OK. They do give options to work different schedules to accommodate employees (only if you are in a department with managers who will allow it, if you work production based positions chances are you will be forced to work the hours they set)

    Cons

    When you join the company at a lower pay grade it will take YEARS before you make a decent salary. Raises are roughly 1-2% and shrinking every year. The process to post for jobs internally is horrible and they typically only let an employee move up two pay grades, and the max raise they tend to offer is 10%. As with any company, politics rule this place. You are required to stay in each position for a minimum of one year. The only way to make some money here is to post out every year and try to get that 10% pay increase. The technology infrastructure is terrible and the company knows it. They are investing heavily in new technology, which comes at a cost to employees. Lower raises and less and less employee incentives. About two years ago they forced all employees onto a high deductible health insurance plan. They also DO NOT care about education. Yes, they offer a tuition reimbursement program (you have to stay at company for THREE years after graduation or pay them back), but when it comes to posting for jobs internally its all about WHO YOU KNOW, not what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better and maybe they will want to stay with the company. There is little to no incentive to stay with PNC. Invest more into keeping talented employees.

    Pros

    As a whole, PNC is a great company, one you can be proud to work for. It is an institution I will always do my banking with.

    Cons

    I was told I could only get a 10% raise when switching positions within the company. I ended up getting paid thousands of dollars less than those who were new to PNC. How is that fair? Also there is a major lack of communication and consistency within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees better.
