    Pros

    Good training program. Every day is something different. Nice bonus plan, unlimited potential. Bank holidays.

    Cons

    Micromanaged at times.
    High-deductible health plan is only option.
    Working some Saturdays is required.
    Sometimes your limited as to when you can take your vacation, as adequate branch coverage is always needed.

    Pros

    The offices were great places to work with a lot of great co-workers. The environment was conducive to personal as well as professional growth.

    Cons

    The challenge of working here was the work in general. This wasn't a bad thing. I was constantly challenged in my tasks.

    Pros

    They're growing very quickly so positions are always open/opening up. Retail banking is becoming highly sales oriented which can go either way for you depending on your service/sales preference. Great people to work with, really depends on the branch you land in on how your management will be. Overall quality staff. Work well with students to accomodate class schedules.

    Cons

    The retail side is moving very rapidly into sales production. The pay is sub-par compared to competing banks although sales can increase your pay with quarterly bonuses. The training is moving to a more hands on approach. Micro-management can be slightly infuriating at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micro-management can be failry commonplace. If you get in with the right people advancements are there.

    Pros

    The location (Pittsburgh's Strip District) is very convenient and accessible by public transit (since parking passes are doled out according to seniority, you may want to take public transit). The environment is casual (jeans are permitted) and the managers are down to earth. The skills learned are transferable.

    Cons

    Some departments like to push their work off onto our departments, and IMHO not enough is done to prevent this.

    I worked at PNC Financial Services Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people were phenomenal. Everyone was brilliant and had some high end degree (most of my group was PhDs), Office culture is very laid-back and beyond supportive of the work-life balance. It's past people just claiming that work-life balance is important.

    Cons

    Would be nicer if it competed a little more in terms of perks and non-work related extras with some of the other big banks.
