    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid, stable bank. Offers good time off policies to employees, particularly when you are an officer.

    Cons

    Training is weak and there is little commitment to employee growth and development. Compensation must be had at time of hire or at promotion because it will not come otherwise. Work-life balance is weak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow-through with the core values and the commitment we all pretend is there. Stop asking for more with less all the time without rewarding and compensating people fairly.

    I worked at M&T Bank

    Pros

    I wish I could think of a few nice things....

    Cons

    Inadequate training, lack of surveillance causes workplace dishonesty, medical benefits inadequate, schedule can change on a moments notice, continuously functions with an inadequate staff that causes a very stressful and dangerous workplace environment, total lack of concern for life-work balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rework your training to include more in branch training and less computer training, change your security/surveillance to bring it up to date and cut down on employee dishonesty, provide better benefits or at least offer more than one choice, hire an adequate number of people to run your branches-your people can be more productive if they are less stressed, care about your employees the way you claim to.

    Pros

    You get the work life balance and in certain cities a lot of people know about M&t

    Cons

    Depending on the personalities at your Branch they don't empower you to do work on your own they migh micromanage you. With people who are internal they offer them a good wage or good promotional pay. Way too much micromanaging. Poor accountability with other co-workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In training for new hires they should make sure that when there are problems with Staff snaching money out of each other's hand or being rude to one another, they need to have team building meetings

    Pros

    The benefits are fair, unfortunately they had been down graded recently.

    Cons

    Regional managers don't walk the walk or talk the talk. If you need help you better find it yourself for asking a regional manager for help will come back to bite you! They pretend to care and are hypocrites. If you are a seasoned BS artist, you will thrive here. You are expected to be responsible for everything but you have control of nothing. The sales expectations are way out of line. Products and services are outdated. Understaffed constantly with no help to fill in the gaps. Often there is no time to take lunch, yet it's expected to be logged that you did. Goes against the labor laws.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a temperature check on local managers to find out what's really going on. When an issue is brought to a regionals attention and they don't want to deal with it they seem to be able to do what ever they want. Nobody is watching them, just the numbers. I have seen many, many top talent leave the bank because of negative treatment and from being held back from opportunities because it's now up to the regional to fill the former position, so you aren't going anywhere unless you leave completely.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are really good, work schedule is consistent, coworkers are decent depending on branch, stable, small referral goals compared to other banks.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than other banks, no communication between upper management and branches, depending on your branch manager you will not move up. Little room for advancement. Managers play favorites. POLITICS!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within and CROSS TRAIN your employees. Your employee shouldn't have to beg to get training for their position or to do a better job. Stop advancing people based on who they know or whose behind they kissed!
