Pros

Pay is OK for Pittsburgh, Some good technology, Co-workers are good people. 401K is OK not great, Management bonus is OK. ITIL might be implemented. Work from home opportunities.

Cons

Too many time-bombs ticking and waiting to go off. A good example is the fact that the some of the operating systems have the word "NT" in them. No one wants to decommission equipment, operating systems or applications. So the data centers are filled with some really old technology that some vendors have stopped supporting. Knee-jerk reactions are the norm ( fire first mentality) - with an overbearing change management system that has a ton of paperwork and approvals, but is terribly ineffective. Problem management system (Infoman) runs on a mainframe and is very clumsy to use. Upper IT Management lacks some key leadership fundamentals like agility, flexibility, and in some cases, integrity. Raises are consistently small, pay grade salary ranges have not been updated since 2004, and technical training is spotty.

Advice to Management

Invest in your people, they are the most important resource in an organization. Take some leadership training.

    I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive benefits package (including domestic partner coverage), exposure to corporate environment, many growth opportunities and internal applicants get first dibs on open positions, good work life balance (depending on your manager)

    Cons

    Promotions and raises are nearly impossible to get wthin your role - you have to switch to a new job in the company in order to move up in position or salary. While there is opportunity to work remotely for some employees, only job candidates in the Pittsburgh headquarters are seriously considered for open positions. Work in Pittsburgh if you have a desire to progress your career here. Also, management is very risk adverse; difficult to get progressive ideas and new approaches seriously considered by leadership.

    Pros

    My coworkers are really sweet fun and endearing. The pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Employee's are not treated with respect. More and more benefits are constantly being taken away.

    Advice to Management

    You need to be about a customer service for real not just say you are. And nickle and diming people is not the right way to grow a business.
