    Pros

    Good leaders, nice coworkers, training is offered and nice work environment. If you are a white male you have a great chance of success at PNC and a great career. For everyone else, you have a chance for a good job.

    Cons

    Men at PNC are seen as "high potential," they are given opportunities to build skills and put on a track to a success. Women's at PNC are seen as in need of "development plans" and "development opportunities," they are given opportunities to do more work to prove themselves and may get on the track to success, if lucky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that talent and potential comes in many different packages, including genders, color, size and backgrounds. Stop managing talent like it is 1950, the company is missing the opportunity to grow leaders.

    Great company to work for but position(s) can be difficult and underpaid

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Loan Support Specialist II  in  Brecksville, OH (US)
    Current Employee - Loan Support Specialist II in Brecksville, OH (US)

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for. They offer good vacation time, health benefits are decent, they have a great volunteer program that you're able to devote time to during work hours, they give back to the community, etc. Depending on your position, typically pretty laid back about time off, calling off, etc. Values family life.

    Cons

    Underpaid, you are held to the accountability that you will help develop new procedures and processes, train new employees, etc. but paid the minimum. Processes change very often by managers but never consulting the specialists (who do the job everyday).

    Pros

    Good health benefits
    Good teamwork and great environment (varies from branch to branch)
    Good to get your foot in the door if interested in the financial industry

    Cons

    Low pay
    Cropping incentives more and more
    Growth opportunity depends in the area where you are, very limited within your own branch. When you change branch for a possible promotion, 70% depends more on how your manager sells you rather than your numbers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since April 2013, a new CEO Mr. Demchak is trying by all means to make the bank more profitable by sacrificing its long established "Main Street Bank" Culture. I got hired in a time when I got to see the before and after of all the changes implemented across the entire footprint. In any sales position, you used to be able to get great incentives and bonuses as a reward for your hard work. Now, there is a "bucket" system implemented, where you have to meet the minimum sales in a certain way with a huge cut to bonuses and not much desire to go the extra mile. I had two managers so far; One was a great manager, (still with the Main Street Bank culture) that coached me and gave me the opportunity to prove myself and grow professionally. The other was a newer manager, that clearly told me that there is not much growth opportunity, and by enforcing new rules you realize you are expected to do just the minimum, and that is good enough.

    Pros

    The co-workers at PNC were friendly and very supportive, which made going to work a great experience. They would listen to your concerns and praise you on your accomplishments.

    Cons

    The only con I have about working at PNC is the salary. It was hard to live in Washington, DC off of a salary in the low 30's k.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would try to be more realistic on the salary you give to your employees.
