    Pros

    Management does make an effort to adhere to employee's work/life needs when scheduling hours/shifts

    Cons

    Qualified candidates are often overlooked for upper-management positions (wrong people are promoted)

    Advice to Management

    Promote/hire the most qualified person for a position rather than the most assertive candidate; consider feedback from subordinates when hiring for management positions

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Huntington National Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid focus on profit and performance

    Cons

    Arrogant, elite and insecure leadership

    Advice to Management

    Instead of being fixated on diversity for a headline, look for true leaders who possess ability, confidence, empathy and courage. Too many insecure people doing what they think will please Steinour instead of leading their businesses.

    Pros

    Possibly the best bank in the country. Every decision made here -- from executives through the front line -- runs through the filter, "Is this the right thing to do for the customer and the community?" Also, and importantly, the bright and the talented are noticed and nurtured.

    Cons

    It's a conservative and risk-averse culture. This is great for protecting the bottom line, but it can hinder innovation. Wish there was more willingness to experiment and fail.

    Advice to Management

    Keep fighting the good fight. Challenge this selfish industry and commit to the customer. Aim for all relationships -- colleague and customer -- to be life-long. And don't be afraid to innovate! It's okay to sacrifice a small amount of revenue for big ideas. Play the long game, not the quarterly analyst game.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, nice atmosphere, adequate training. Middle management was very good. Morale is very good.

    Cons

    I didnt feel that middle management and senior management were in sinke

    Advice to Management

    Try to really understand the life of a Loan Officer and the location they are residing in.

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable, good corporate health, recognized name, education benefits, telecommute flexibility, 401k match, limited overtime or weekends, 2% average annual salary adjustment.

    Cons

    Mostly compensation related - 401k match is only 4%, salary adjustments average 2% - some get none, some get more, most get 2. Limited bonus for all - 1% to 401k for good corporate performance. Limited advancement opportunities, get silo'd to your area, difficult to branch out.

    Pros

    Huntington encourages continuing improvement. There are often opportunities for advancement, as well, and you can move up quickly with the right support from your manager.

    Cons

    Hiring upper management without banking or management experience does not make sense. Additionally, tracking employee satisfaction and performance needs to be improved. Some move on because they feel that their needs or concerns are not being addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation should be based on merit and loyalty, as well as performance. Having everyone in the same job family at the same pay rate, with no differences for performance and years with the company is not rewarding for those who work hard and are loyal to the bank.
