    Pros

    Strong culture and training program if hired right out of undergrad. Work life balance is good and you can expect regular banking hours.

    Cons

    Very conservative and the company does not stretch risk profile even for deals it should. Length of employment large factor in promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stretch for some deals if full relationship potential. Internal technology needs to be updated in a big way.

    Pros

    There is a lot of room for career advancement. PNC has a lot of networking opportunities. Employees are always willing to help out other employees with career advice.

    Cons

    Salary. You can work at PNC for years and make less than somebody who has just started in the same position.

    Pros

    They really do believe in customer service and the happiness of the associates for it shows in your performance reviews.

    Cons

    The regional leadership is horrible for they come from PA and they are not used to the IL way of things. Faster pace and different customer needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont just act like you care, try and care and put yourself in your empties shoes at times, not every thing is black and white, there has to be a gray area.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Most of the people are friendly and inviting.

    Cons

    The HR department is full of false promises and the talent organization is very catty. If new fresh ideas are presented, they will not be heard. Management is all about themselves and advancing their careers. Many have been slingshot to the top, but refuse to extend a helping hand so that lower level employees can advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value high performers and stop with the nonsense of giving raises under 3%.

    Pros

    Schedule, flex-time, overall work load, vacation time

    Cons

    Culture of my line of business, absolute lack of training, vague task assignments, compensation is run of the mill, benefits are not stellar, no bonuses or cost of living raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your new hires please. Coming from a company that had an amazing training program that prepared you with the tools needed to succeed at my job and effectively communicate to PNC was a complete shock. I am not the only relatively new hire that has received zero training.

    Pros

    It is a great company to work for and very well known in Pittsburgh

    Cons

    Not much exposure given as an Operations intern. I was searching for a more challenging environment but many days at the office were spent not doing much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give interns the same exposure as associates

    A very stable company, but personal growth potential is low; tech is lacking

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

    Pros

    Most positions have a great work-life balance, and the starting salaries (especially for entry level positions) are generally attractive. Despite size, the 'small company' ethic still exists with many employees, and there is a general sense of community and desire to help one another.

    Cons

    Growth, in terms of salary and skill set, is very low. It's easy to be pigeon-holed into a role and stay in that niche. Due to this there is little incentive to stay beyond a personally identified timeframe. That timeframe is entirely dependent on each individual's goals, however retirement benefits vest at 3yrs, and that seems to be a common cut-off.
