    The benefits are better than the those provided at bank they bought MidAmerica Bank.

    National city it not headquartered in Illinois so no corporate jobs available other than relocation

    Pros

    Benefits package and vacation days.

    Cons

    Insufficient training. Advancement if you're drinking buddies with management.

    Advice to Management

    It's important to listen to your employees, provide better training; don't just promote your drinking buddies to management positions, and need more positive feedback to emplyees.

    Pros

    Large corp with lots of job postings with preference always given to internal candidates. Benefits are above average for corporations.

    Cons

    Politics get in the way of sound management. Management deadlines result in poor performance, employees held accountable, management is not.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to plan. "Doing" without planning results in "re-doing". Spend less time blaming someone, spend more time preventing issues.

    Pros

    There are still good people left after PNC took over.
    You get the impression they are trying to do a good job.
    Surrounded by a LOT of very smart people.

    Cons

    People are dropping like flies, every day more and more positions are being eliminated (I'm out of here in a few months myself).
    It seems that for some positions they are hiring way over-qualified people because the market is so full of unemployed people.

    Advice to Management

    Change your job postings on the PNC side so it is clear when job location can be flexible.
    Revamp your job descriptions to be a true representation of the job responsibilities, at times they are not accurate.
    Communicate, communicate, communicate. I know you are trying but there are a lot of confused employees and customers about the transition to PNC.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Especially in I.S., many opportunities for a good salary without having to become a manager; however, there is very much a sense of being constrained by the way things have "always been done."

    Cons

    The biggest con is obvious to anyone who knows anything about the company -- you are nearly guaranteed to work in a department hit by layoffs in the next 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    It's been nearly 9 months since the acquisition was announced -- stop planning and talking about the need for communication and start actually communicating.


  9. "Decent place to work if your job is secure."

    Pros

    Good benefits, hours, and atmosphere. Most of your coworkers are good people. The time off, benefits, 401k, etc. were all pretty good. Mostly better than average. We had a good area for breaks, lunch, etc. There were some fun things planned to keep morale up like free cookouts, etc.

    Cons

    Unstable mortgage and lending market, risk of layoff. Although there were a lot of jobs open that you could transfer into, they always seemed to go to someone who was already in that department. It seemed like it was more important who you knew, or how long you'd been there. Not necessarily how good your work perform was.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep employment more stable.

    Pros

    If you are looking for a salaried position with some (but not great) commision. In the interview process they will try to start you in the low $30s but it is negotiable. Just show them you are a great sales person. First you will interview with HR, then Regional FA, then branch manager.

    Cons

    it is a duel role (licensed financial consultant) so you will be half customer service (regarding bank accounts) and half financial advisor. Way too many meetings and way too little options regarding investments. You are lucky if you make $60k a year with commisions. They tell you you can double your salary but when you look around at who is doing that its way to few who are. Its all about the market you are in (the branch you will be working with) thats why I left.

    Advice to Management

    Broaden your investment options and specialize the role instead of having the LFC do everything.
