Pathway to Success to a new life
Pittsburgh, PA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of my intership was the exceptional leadership and mentorship that was provided me in my internship. I could not have been placed in a better opportunity with better professionals.

My Manager kept me busy and coached me on areas of opportunity to improve the overall effectiveness of my experience. I truly believe that this is an opportunity to "learn and grow".

My greatest experience in my internship was going out to the East Region and Allegheny Region posing as a customer to complete branch audits. I now understand why Human Sigma is so very important to PNC.


Downers

The least thing that I like about the internship is being uncertain of whether or not I will be selected for a full time opportunity with the corporation.


Advice to Potential Interns

In reference to my experience in evaluating an organization as a potential employer I would advise a candidate to look for the qualities that "you" have that match the company's qualities. I had a great experience overall because I looked for the attributes of Integrity, Performance, and made sure that the company's vision matched my vision. Also look for a company who rewards hard work.


Advice to Management

Employee Retention is an area that I would directly address in reference to retaining the great employees and keeping them on board.

Own Your Development

The freedom/responsibility given to each intern from day one. It helped foster growth amongst the interns and allowed people to seperate themselves in a positive way without having to take advantage of others.

At times there was not enough work for me.

People are the key to an organization and PNC has great people.

Easy going and balanced
Pittsburgh, PA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Networking


Downers

Technology software took to long to get in order to be cleared, and not enough challenging work


Advice to Potential Interns

Try really hard to get where you want to be first, and do not settle for what you think will be easiest to get. PNC is really good about helping you pursue any avenue in banking. All youhave to do is ask.


Advice to Management

Compensation is low along with the stipend when you consider taxes. Also please keep the interns busier with work in the department they are interning

Yes

Responsibility and Impact
Pittsburgh, PA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Compensation level, responsibility given, tasks assigned, culture.


Downers

Some tasks assigned were given from people outside of my specific department; communication between managers of what I should be completing could have been improved.


Advice to Potential Interns

There are tons of opportunities to network with upper level management, compensation is very fair, and the culture is spectacular. People treat interns with respect and, if competent, are given work that impacts the line of business and organization.


Would You Recommend

Yes

"Intern Gains Real-World Knowledge and Undergoes Tremendeous Personal Growth"
Pittsburgh, PA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

My team is great - I was placed very well. I learned a lot, and I really value the networking opportunities we have. That sent PNC apart from all of the other places I interviewed with.


Downers

- I want to know what my mid-process review overall score was. I also want to know what my final review overall score will be. I wish I could see where I am good and where I need improvement. I wouldn't get mad at my manager or be offended, I would try to grow from it. Honestly.



- I wish it had started earlier so that it could end sooner. I would have liked a bigger break between work and school than just 5 days.


Advice to Potential Interns

PNC goes above and beyond for its interns. The Summer Summit, networking opportunities, placement decisions, Connections website, and campus recruiting team are all extremely valuable assets to the company and they are things that set PNC apart from nearly everyone else out there. They make you feel at home, appreciated, and valuable, even though you are a temporary employee.


Advice to Management

I've heard that the intern-to-development program retention is great, but that the development program-to-full-time retention is awful. I think that's because you spend so much time, effort, and money on impressing the young talent that your mid-level employees are totally overworked and underappreciated. I've spoken with my team, and other teams on my floor, and almost all of the middle-aged people in my department are REALLY unhappy. That's sad, and it's definitely not the route I want my life to go. You NEED to stop hiring based on head count and start basing it off of the budget. And the business needs to understand that it cannot function in today's day and age without technology. Technology NEEDS to be more appreicated. These men and women have so much on their plates, and yet they have completely unnecessary hoops to jump through on an almost hourly basis. These teams are dropping like flies - I've seen over 5 full-time employees leave the bank on my floor alone since I started in mid-June. That's terrifying for someone who is looking for a full-time, long-term job, especially in a field that is not going anywhere any time soon. If people are so unhappy here that they are leaving positions they've been in for multiple years to go to another company, it makes me wonder what is wrong with PNC. Even though I'm impressed by the lengths the company goes to in order to make interns feel appreciated and valued, I am disappointed that those feelings aren't being expressed to the people that actually make the bank run.
