    Pros

    * People who had a real devotion to NCC
    * Sales force had a real interest in the customers of the bank
    * Genuine support for the markets it served

    Cons

    * Highly silo-focused organization
    * Leadership that was detached from details (ala risk management)
    * Very short-sighted approach to regulator and street-management

    Advice to Management

    * Don't wait until it's too late to enact change
    * When change is necessary, get on with it
    * Leaders are appreciated for leading, not for being nice - don't be nasty for the sake of being nasty and don't be nice when hard-nosed is required

    Pros

    I liked working at National City and felt I had a great opportunity for success. They are committed to the success of the Dayton Ohio area and to the people. I believe that PNC will be great and will continue to operate in a positive manner for all concerned.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the elimination of jobs because of the merger has left many local workers scrambling for lesser paying jobs within the company or unemployed and this leaves a bad taste in the mouth of local customers and former employees.

    Advice to Management

    I think you should revisit your displaced workers and see what additional things you can do to help them. 12 weeks in this economy is certainly appreciated but hardly adequate for the current time of year or economic climate.

  3. "Great place to work"

    Pros

    Great culture
    Excellent opportunities
    Strategically focused to grow the business
    Willing to let managers own and drive the business

    Cons

    Poor decision/timing on the sub prime market
    NCB's acquisition by PNC has identified some cultural business philosophy difference between the two groups.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your pledge to observe, learn, and analyze the practices in both NCB and PNC before you decide how to proceed.

    Pros

    Pay was well above average and bonuses were good. 3 weeks vacation plus sick time, 115% match on first 6% in 401k.

    Cons

    Merger with PNC has brought many changes, obviously. The problem is the inability of regional managers to communicate accurate info. Favortism runs rampant in this area as the regional manager does not listen to all the facts of a situation but instead acts upon how she feels. Flat out called me a liar and told me "We were done discussing this" when I tried to explain the situation. I recieved an apology a couple days later when she was proven wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Your people are the key to success. You say your worried about employee engagement and making the PNC brand synonomous with banking, but if your employees hate you and the customers dont trust you that isn't going to happen.

    How unfortunate NCB entered the sub-prime market

    Pros

    Hours are extremely flexible to fit your school schedule. Staff is extremely helpful with their instruction. Opportunity for advancement exists

    Cons

    Can become monotonous at times, but that is to be expected with most internships.

    Advice to Management

    The integration with PNC has gone surprisingly smoothly considering the size of the task. Keep up the good work

    Pros

    National City offered a lot of flexiblity in your work schedule. Depending on your manager, you were given a lot of responsiblity and freedom to do your own thing.

    Cons

    Some areas of the bank needed lot of work to run efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more encouragement and guidance

    Current Employee - Personal Banker in Cincinnati, OH

    Pros

    Good position to learn and to grow in the Banking industry. Low stress and pays decent for the hrs worked.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement past the Branch Manager position due to a lot of bankers and not many managers leaving.

    Advice to Management

    National City needs to take better care of thier employees in forms of professional development. Many skilled employees leave because there isnt much room for growth.

    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.
