Unfortunately the reviews are true...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Columbus, OH (US)

I worked at Huntington National Bank for more than 10 years

ProsI absolutely loved working with my peers; there are so many smart, resourceful and good people that work at Huntington. I have worked with Huntington through 3 leadership changes and have seen the very good to the very bad. Ultimately I'm embarassed that the leadership has let the perception of the company get to this point. This perception does a disservice to the talented workforce that is still there.

ConsSimilar to what many others have said, Huntington has bred a culture of dishonesty, backstabbing and at times even unethical behavior by its managers (I personally have seen this with mid-level and senior level management). As a whole, management is untrained in leadership philosophy and practices and learns from its peers who lack integrity and are untrained as well. With all this being said, there are some GREAT managers at Huntington but unfortunately the bad is outweighing the good.

Advice to Senior ManagementLike someone else said - you know what you need to do. Until this type of feedback is taken seriously and management truly wants to change the culture from within, it will not happen.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not the job you think it will be. Read the real reviews (the 3 stars or less ones) and be cautious.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Huntington National Bank

ProsMost of the staff (read: fellow grunts in the trenches) are good folks. Management can be iffy.

ConsHigher up couldn't care less about you unless you are a selling machine, and even if you are then you'll just get an "atta boy/girl" and told you need to sell some other meaningless product.

Good bank to belong to as a customer, awful to actually work for. Unless you like feeling like a cog, and being grossly underpaid.

Advice to Senior ManagementShow your staff that you see them more than just a sales number on a spreadsheet. Constantly bombing them about how they should sell more credit cards, and call customers to "upsell" them on more accounts is not the best strategy for keeping them around for the long haul, or making them want to stay - hence the insane turnover rate.

Most of the people in power have very little knowledge in terms of how to properly motivate people. It starts with making your staff feel valued. Some serious training in this regard is needed. If the company doesn't care about the employee why should the employee care about the job?

In the beginning I loved it, but now I wish I'd never come

Escrow Process Administrative (Current Employee)
Columbus, OH (US)

I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time for less than a year

ProsFlexible work schedules, the work was easy although I am not doing what I was hired to do.

ConsHR is not helpful, there is no room for advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementI just wish that they were a little more caring and helpful. HR is supposed to be helpful and anonymous, but they report all confidential information back to management. The pay is not that well for all of the BS work they have us doing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great people who really care about the customers

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Columbus, OH (US)

I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time for more than 5 years

ProsPeople at Huntington are very committed to customer service and doing the right thing. I thought this was all corporate 'rah-rah' stuff when I was interviewed - but it's serious. Huntington employees are proud of their company, want to help their customers and help the community.

ConsAdvancement is not the easiest thing to accomplish at Huntington. Even when you deserve a promotion, you may need to fight to get it.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have great people here - don't forget it. Take good care of them.

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

I worked at Huntington Bank for 2 years as a Director of IT within the Commercial area and left to go back to Chase.

Director of IT (Former Employee)

I worked at Huntington National Bank full-time for more than a year

ProsLocation at Easton is very accessible - pay was good, but expect to work 60 hours/week if you are in IT.

ConsSimilar to what many others have said, Huntington has bred a culture of dishonesty, backstabbing and at times even unethical behavior by its managers (I personally have seen this with mid-level and senior level management). As a whole, management is untrained in leadership philosophy and practices and learns from its peers who lack integrity and are untrained as well.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice to Senior Management – Some of the managers are great and some are the worst that I have ever worked for in my career. They may 'get the job done' by only be degrading their staff.
