Great Company for Work/Life Balance

Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee)
Cleveland, OH (US)

I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group full-time for more than a year

ProsVery great work/life balance, work from home opportunities, paid vacation, great benefits, etc.

ConsDepending on the group, a lot of things are left up to manager discretion. Some management is a bit too traditional when it comes to dealing with millenials, so they need to work on that learning curve a bit.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to manage youth (millenials)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Although the In-Store Financial Sales Consultant position requires hard work, It's been a mostly satisfying experience.

Financial Sales Consultant (Current Employee)
Columbia, MD (US)

I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group full-time for more than a year

ProsSuperior product designed to save people money compares very well to other bank's products. A great bank to learn and grow.

ConsThe In-Store work hours can be a bit brutal open 364 days out of the year, especially if the branch is under staffed. The salary could be a little better.

Advice to Senior ManagementLoyalty is bought and paid for. if you want more employees with prior experience in your In-store branches, increase the base salary to accommodate a more mature employee.

Best bank I've worked for in my 13 years in the business

Assistant Branch Manager (Current Employee)
East Orange, NJ (US)

I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group full-time for more than a year

ProsPNC is not a widget driven bank. They are a relationship driven bank. I know every bank says that, but the PNC strategy truly exemplifies this. They have an eco-system of business partners that works together to reach branch goals. At many banks, you don't know who your business partners are; you'll often only see them once or twice a year. This is not the case at PNC. They are extremely accessible. Good overall culture. I've never once been asked "How many checking accounts did you open today?", which is rare for a bank. PNC is truly committed to the entire financial relationship.

ConsSame challenges exist at PNC that exist in all commercial retail banks. Aggressive sales goals with a very slim work-force. Also, there's been a strong push to get clients to use the ATM, online, and mobile banking which will essentially make brick and mortar banking centers obsolete.

PNC has a great culture but negotiate hard prior to accepting a position.

Senior Analyst (Former Employee)

I worked at PNC Financial Services Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLots of opportunity, interesting people, benefits are good, good overall organization...the branch network is a decent place to start if you would like to work in banking but have no/little experience.

ConsIndividual comp generally does not rise much over time, bureaucracy can slow development efforts, risk management is a double edged sword

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
