    Low pay

    Financial Sales Consultant (Former Employee) Kalamazoo, MI

    Consno simulation. extremely boring you are on a dialer and just wait for someone to pick up their phone. bank customers are super confused when you call them creates a level of distrust with otherwise loyal customers.

    Senior fiduciary tax accountant

    Senior Tax Accountant (Current Employee) Philadelphia, PA

    ProsRequirements for position is very high on educations. MBA JD, CPA is required with at least 5-7 years experience.

    ConsPosition is subject to being outsourced due to compatible companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe very careful when posting these types of positions . Pay has to be comparable to other companies and pay grade, therefore, the experience need to match position.

    Good learning techniques for customer service industry.

    TBS (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsWork/life balance, career opportunites, and the bank offers pension plan along with option to purchas stock.

    ConsThey should be more open to negotiating salary for those who meets the requirements, have a degree and the banking experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's not only about the sales. Stop basing performance job appraisals on sales alone. Its a c ombination of sales, risk management and customer service. Do more than a 2% raise when the US average for the year is 3% if you rate that employee has meets all expectations. Rating an employee as such and giving a less than average raise percentage is not showing them that they have met all expectations. It shows that you are trying to save the P&L for your bonus check at the end of the year and no appreciation for your employee who helped you with branch goals.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    High turnover

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsOriginally attracted to PNC because of the upbeat culture

    ConsPay is terrible for comparable work

    Advice to Senior ManagementHigh turnover results in customer dissatifaction. Relationship building is a core value for increased sales and profitablity. By the time the clients assume a relationship with their Banker; Their Banker has gone on to another institution for higher pay.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    PNC WEALTH MANAGEMENT

    Associate Relationship Manager (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsGreat place to start career or if you are a senior person with tons of experience and network
    very smart people on the teams

    Consnot enough resources for associates; you will get the subpar branches and likely make no real incentive credits if you do not have a network of millionaires ready to invest with you.
    Technology is a bit dated but should improve

    Advice to Senior Managementbe more realistic with the goals of associates are they will continue to leave. Think about all the money you spend to building them; however lack implementation of how to use them effective in market.
