Unlimited Professional and Personal Growth Through PNC Pathways
Pittsburgh, PA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

PNC has an incredible company culture where everyone is welcoming and willing to help train you for your position. They do a phenomenal job of giving you exposure to various aspects of each department, connecting you with the right people and allowing you to really find your niche within that one area. In addition, the projects you are assigned are well thought out, and you will find yourself learning new skills every day.


Downers

Some days are slower than others in terms of work. I like to be as productive as possible!


Advice to Potential Interns

PNC invests so much into each intern, and they personalize and tailor your internship experience to your interests and strengths while allowing exploration of other areas as well. From day one, you will receive meaningful work that contributes to the business outcomes of the bank!

More than just a place to deposit your money, PNC offers opportunities in invesment banking, wealth management, and sales and trading.
Philadelphia, PA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

PNC has the benefits of operating like a boutique day to day and as a bulge bracket bank in terms of its role within the financial industry.


Downers

I think the recruiting process is somewhat flawed in that they interview for very different positions together. (retail banking and investment banking for example)


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't follow the crowd. Chasing the same banks/positions as everyone else just because everyone else is chasing those positions keeps you from exploring which opportunities are best fit for you which sets you back in the long run.

I wish it were longer and I had more time with PNC.


Advice to Potential Interns

Network with as many people as possible and work on projects with different people on your team. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Move to a city that isn't your hometown.


Advice to Management

As for interns, I think the internship should be 12 weeks.

Pittsburgh, PA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The invaluable networking opportunities!


Downers

I wish it was longer than 9.5 weeks.

Don't underestimate the importance of working for a company that values their employees and work-life balance. Don't let a higher salary you find elsewhere fool you! Salary isn't everything.

How Big Business is Helping the Little People
Cleveland, OH | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

working with other interns, good events, good communication between mentors, managers and all others involved.


Downers

I would have liked to learn more/have done more. Worked more seriously on a big project.


Advice to Potential Interns

It's a great company and the program is great. Expect that you may have to find ways to keep yourself busy during the internships as there are heavy days but also very light days of work.


Advice to Management

I think ensuring there is enough work, but not too much for the interns is important to how they feel about their job. They might feel they accomplished or worked too little, or didn't learn enough at the end.
