    I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Moving towards a healthier SDLC and product life cycle methodology in general. Engineering teams are usually mostly competent.

    Cons

    Shared services groups are difficult to work with; a lot of red tape when dealing with engineers outside of your department; business drives the technology more than it should. Product managers/Operations managers too involved in pure technology decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt AGILE.

    I worked at PNC Financial Services Group

    Pros

    Good, helpful people, customer focused mission, relatively flexible schedule due to work from home policy. This company made improvements in the areas of technology and operations when I was there.

    Cons

    There were so many restrictions and rules around advancement within the company when starting at entry level. No clear career path from this job.

    Pros

    Great people, team oriented work place, supports work life balance, encourages personal and professional development, well established company in the Pittsburgh area, opportunities to rise up within the company, supports employee participating in community service initiatives,

    Cons

    Benefits aren't great, raises are very small if at all, can get 'lost' in such a large company, unclear career paths

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a career plan with your employees (where they want to be in five years, etc.) and help them reach their goals.

    I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group

    Pros

    It is a very stable organization that focuses on risk management, which leads to slow progress on most things.

    Cons

    It is a very Pittsburgh centric organization. Some managers will not be promoted if not in Pittsburgh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The use of Clarity in projects is a burden and detriment to the company.

    Pros

    This company is very flexible with their different work/life balance arrangements. Great for working parents and those who care for their elderly parents.

    This company is quite big so you can experience different careers at one company.

    PNC has a great continual learning department. They are very supportive with furthering your career or personal education. Quite a number of certification are given in house and they are supportive with any reimbursements.

    Cons

    PNC historical pays very low in salary. HR once called me and said they had to raise my salary because it was too low to for the market. Their salary increases are not that great either.

    Their healthcare benefits are horrible. They have a high deductible plans 1500/2500 put you are still required to pay 80/20 after you meet your deductible plus a high premium for this plan. They give you a small amount of money towards your HSA but it's distribution is spread over 12 months.

    Add an extremely high deductible premium, plus HSA contributions, and a low salary can equal a broke employee who uses the healthcare system to stay healthy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salary levels needs to be competitive in order to maintain people.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, support higher education and getting certifications, open door policy with managers and your opinion is highly valued with upper management. Grow up great is a great program and allows you to volunteer up to 40 hours a year offsite during work.

    Cons

    Low salary and chances to move up in the company, seem to value hiring contractors rather than promoting within
