    National City Bank had a Great IT department!

    P/A, Q/A (Former Employee) Cleveland, OH (US)

    ProsHighly organized IT department using true design and test teams. Smart, focused people doing interesting conceptual work.

    ConsThe bank was killed by sub-prime loans, the corpse was given to PNC Bank by the FEDS. I was there at the end when whole floors of people were laid off at once. Kinda' like the end of the world.

    Advice to Senior Management[sub-prime loans], if it sounds to good to be true, it is. Greed is one of the several deadly sins, remember, pigs get feed, hogs get slaughtered. When I looked at a Condo loan with an ARM and a balloon. I knew there was a problem.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
