    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank (More than a year)

    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.

    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.

    A lot of down time to make calls to customers.

    Lessen the sales goals

    Listen to the in store via sales they are producing.

    Pros

    Difficult to tell yet. Company seems to desire to be employee-focused but experience so far has been that it says one thing and does another. Time will tell.

    Cons

    CEO has a rah rah attitude, is a micro manager, and it bleeds down through the organization. If you enjoy having someone assign non value added activities and then look over your shoulder while you do it then this is the place for you. Huntington people are relying heavily upon the FirstMerit people (many who are being let go) to conduct most of the merger related work effort because the Huntington people lack the knowledge and experience and don't have any M&A project documentation. Heard a lot complaints that the Huntington people then take credit for the work at meetings with senior management. Lost of waste and inefficiency. Pay cuts for the few of the surviving FirstMerit people. Many experienced FirstMerit people were let go in favor of Huntington employees who had much less qualifications and experience (even though CEO said they were going to pick the most qualified). Poor communication.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees to do the job you hired them for.
