    No meritocracy, no career path
    Lack of diversity
    No training and development
    Lacks culture of innovation
    Technology infrastructure is poor

    Pros

    There aren't many pros to working here. The work/life balance is OK. They do give options to work different schedules to accommodate employees (only if you are in a department with managers who will allow it, if you work production based positions chances are you will be forced to work the hours they set)

    Cons

    When you join the company at a lower pay grade it will take YEARS before you make a decent salary. Raises are roughly 1-2% and shrinking every year. The process to post for jobs internally is horrible and they typically only let an employee move up two pay grades, and the max raise they tend to offer is 10%. As with any company, politics rule this place. You are required to stay in each position for a minimum of one year. The only way to make some money here is to post out every year and try to get that 10% pay increase. The technology infrastructure is terrible and the company knows it. They are investing heavily in new technology, which comes at a cost to employees. Lower raises and less and less employee incentives. About two years ago they forced all employees onto a high deductible health insurance plan. They also DO NOT care about education. Yes, they offer a tuition reimbursement program (you have to stay at company for THREE years after graduation or pay them back), but when it comes to posting for jobs internally its all about WHO YOU KNOW, not what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better and maybe they will want to stay with the company. There is little to no incentive to stay with PNC. Invest more into keeping talented employees.

    Pros

    The benefitsare fair, and I for a great manager

    Cons

    Pay for the work is substandard compared to industry company paid pension should not be a reason to pay a person less. I recently wentfor a job interview and was asked my salary,The recruiter Paused and then asked if I worked part time. BE prepared to work a part time job. Like many of my co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be realistic in your compensationand
    and you stop losing talent. In my region there is constant turnover.

    Pros

    Pnc's products and services are good and if you're in the right branch, it's pretty easy to achieve your sales goals

    Cons

    They only see the 1% thing you're doing wrong and don't notice the 99% things you're doing right. It can be a mafia in there sometimes. Hard to transfer or get promoted. Sometimes managers can prefer having you fired instead of getting a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set realistic goals
    Put yourself in the employees' shoes
