    Pros

    I do not have any pros for this company. They have a lot of things to work on. With being such a big company major changes are needed

    Cons

    Huntington needs to take care of their employees much better. I think the pay should be much more higher then what it currently is

    Pros

    Huntington is a company that is working towards treating their colleagues better and offers profit sharing for your 401K. A non smoking employer.

    Cons

    Huntington has made a lot of cuts after its First Merit merget and continue to do so. Many policies are vague and allows Huntington to treat colleagues differently under the same circumstances. How much your manger likes you and will support you varies by department and not all colleagues are treated the same.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your colleagues, as a regional bank not be treated as a number should be a perk you experience when working for a smaller financial institution.

    "USED to be a Great Place to Work"

    I worked at Huntington National Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -Most employees are truly top-notch people - really care about customers and other employees
    -Serious customer focus
    -Long history of the company
    -At one point, Huntington was a great community leader and could get that back again.
    -Because so many employees are great people, the jerks really stand out - however, they are allowed to stay for too long.
    -Pay is excellent.

    Cons

    -There are too many incompetent leaders - they must have compromising pictures of someone. Many don't have a college degree, which creates insecurity and backbiting.
    -HR is a joke without a punchline. They are constantly 'reorganizing', which they think passes for actual work. There is no vision or leadership in HR.
    -There are different standards for different employees. Higher up people can make racist comments and get away with it. (See above about HR being a joke.)
    -You don't want to be over 50 years old and working here - they will get rid of you.
    -Leaders are known to simply throw temper tantrums to get their way. Ruling by intimidation is not leadership.
    -Biggest challenge is complete lack of planning. The CEO demands something and everyone scrambles to do it - work/life balance is out the window. The culture has changed greatly in the last 15 years and not for the better.
    -They find out who wrote what on the annual employee survey - please don't provide them with 'candid feedback' if it's negative because you'll have a target on your back.

    Advice to Management

    -Having 'Business Resource Groups' does NOT make you 'diverse' or 'inclusive'. Your leadership looks and more importantly, acts, the same.
    -Columbus is a small town in many ways and your reputation as an employer is not good. You have a chance to turn this around but it will take more than a task force or committees with endless meetings.
    -Leadership starts at the top.
    -When top leaders have affairs with employees, it gets around pretty fast. Clean up your house and apply the same standards to everyone.

    Pros

    Company investment in analytics
    Plenty of opportunity to leverage data resources to make an impact
    Good work life/balance
    Competitive compensation and generous PTO

    Cons

    Diversity of perspective, experience, and skill set has been discouraged by leadership.
    No women in leadership, and high attrition for female employees dismissed as "typical for a competitive field."

    Advice to Management

    Employees don't leave bad companies, they leave bad bosses.
