Negative Outlook

I worked at National City as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Highly organized IT department using true design and test teams. Smart, focused people doing interesting conceptual work.

Cons

The bank was killed by sub-prime loans, the corpse was given to PNC Bank by the FEDS. I was there at the end when whole floors of people were laid off at once. Kinda' like the end of the world.

Advice to Management

[sub-prime loans], if it sounds to good to be true, it is. Greed is one of the several deadly sins, remember, pigs get feed, hogs get slaughtered. When I looked at a Condo loan with an ARM and a balloon. I knew there was a problem.

    I worked at National City full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and great staff. They really had their stuff together but in the end it all fell apart

    Cons

    One word. PNC. They came in and pretty much ruined everything. Technology went back 10 years.
