Easy going and balanced


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


Would You Recommend

Yes

Own Your Development


Uppers

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.


Downers

At times there was not enough work for me.


Advice to Potential Interns

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


Advice to Management

Increase the level of technology, at times it feels a bit limited.

Internship Paves Way for Successful Career and Successful Life.


Uppers

The best aspects of the interhship was the exposure to upper management and the ability to be exposed to multiple lines of business. In addition, the overall culture was aligned with my personal character.


Downers

The lack of analyst & TMO resources within my market. There weren't any analysts in my market which means I wasn't specifically exposed to what analysts do on a day-to-day basis.


Advice to Potential Interns

- Be proactive instead of reactive, ask for tasks to do in which you can help. Once task is done report to manager and have them give immediate feedback on your results. - Ask questions!!! - Take the time to interview as many people in different LOB to gain insight on what you may like or dislike.


Advice to Management

-Perhaps the ability to work from home maybe one day a week. (Not necessarily as an intern, just in general) -Have designated quiet times in which people aren't able to interupt individuals so workers wont be distracted from their work. Ex: Tuesdays & Thursdays between noon & 4:30PM is strict uninterrupted working time. No "ifs" "ands" or "buts" about it. -Limit the amount of meetings per day/week and only have essential people that are actively involved in the meeting attend. Meetings are expensive.

Pathway to Success to a new life


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.

The people, from other interns to mentors to managers. Also, getting assigned projects that will be used to help your team in the future.


Downers

I have no complaints.


Advice to Potential Interns

It is a great company to work for and everyone is always willing to help you succeed.


Advice to Management

More training would be helpful, but it is hard spend a lot of time on training since the program is so short.
