Approves of CEO

Pros

Positives:

The people at NCC are truly best in class. Even though NCC is a big company 30K+, there is a close nit community feel. Additionally, meeting with upper level management is practice that is encouraged.

Negatives:
Considering that NCC Is a close nit environment company, your advancement is highly weighted on who you know and who knows you and your abilities.

Cons

NCC needs to do a better job at integrating their customer data. Extracting accurate data about customers and market segments can be very difficult and frustrating. There are multiple systems that are not linked.

The company was recently taken over my PNC. Therefore, I am not sure how many jobs will be cut as a result.

Advice to Management

Don't be affair to make a decision.

    Pros

    Historically, there has been plenty of room for advancement; managers are usually supportive of those who want to try a different career path.

    Generally, the lower ranks are composed of smart people who care about their business.

    The retail network is unparalleled. I have always worked with people who like people, and like helping others.

    Cons

    There is too much bureaucracy. Things take much too long to get done. There are always too many parties involved and too much talking, not enough doing.

    I have seen too many instances of people being promoted because their resumes look better than their actual performance. This has resulted in a culture of very polished but not terribly knowledgeable senior managers. There are too many truly talented people jumping ship because they're not pedigreed enough to promote.

    There's a lot of siloing between lines of business. Sometimes I'm working on something and find out that the same project is going on in another part of the bank. More communication between department heads would be helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Note to PNC: less McKinsey consultants, more people who actually know banking. Oh, and stick to what NCB does best- boring checking, savings, and straight mortgages to people who can prove how much they earn.


  2. "Used to be a great place to work"

    Pros

    The bank had great potential before being sold, with a great retail presence throughout the midwest and a great future. New leadership had been added to the bank recently but never had the chance to add more to the bottom line. Teh people at NCC are wonderful and very talented.

    Cons

    The bank is being sold, so a lot of uncertainty now. If all goes well with the merger then the new bank will be one of the top 5 banks in the coutry with lots of opportunities. It you join NCC now you'll have to deal with very well with uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Make staffing decisions quickly
