    Pros

    Once you are established and show promise, advancement opportunities are made
    Great visibility
    Middle Management is promising and has talent

    Cons

    Low salaries
    Folks have been here forever "This is how its always done"
    Old school management by authority

    Advice to Management

    Do listed to new folks coming in from the outside
    If there is a problem, it may really be internal and not always external

    Pros

    easy going, friendly co-workers, has potential to change if they embrace technology more. career opportunities are available and there are many different avenues you can take once in.

    Cons

    Technology is still stuck in the 80's, manual processes, simple tasks are made complex for no reason. front end users voices are dismissed or unheard.

    Advice to Management

    embrace technology, allow your employees to be creative, listen to your front end users, come up with a mission or vision statement that everyone can get behind. Executives should show their face more through road shows or video conference to make connection with their staff, instead of quarterly emails.

    Pros

    Great team work and partners on the branch level

    Cons

    Little support on the mortgage side. Made you feel like they didn't want to be in mortgage buisness.

    Advice to Management

    Work with their team and not against their team.

    Pros

    Discounts on mortgage rates and banking products. Some great employees and managers that will try to push you to succeed. Tons of middle management so there is room to move up.

    Cons

    Health benefits aren't great, but ok. Tons of middle management- some good and some bad. Good employees are taken at will from departments to assist with the BSA initiatives leaving the old department to cover that work with no additional employees. Salary is below peers and competitors in the area, causing employees to start here and go to another bank for larger pay for a few years then come back at significantly higher pay.

    Advice to Management

    Reviews of Managers should be given more frequently and allow for specifics. Loyalty should be rewarded in merit increases.

    Pros

    M&T bank is a wonderful company to work for. They train new employees and they also care about all of their employees. The nice thing about working in a bank, especially one like M&T, is you can build your way up the ladder. Their starting pay-grade is pretty good and more than other big banks. They also have a variety of banking positions available. My specific supervisor was amazing, by the way.

    Cons

    I could not stand working at the call center. I had bank experience before working at M&T and I was a teller, so I was dealing with customers, face-to-face (which is more for me) The M&T Bank Call Center is for people that wants to be on the phone all day with customers, relating to banking, whether it is anything from customer service to inbound or outbound sales. Unfortunately, I was in outbound sales, calling customers trying to get them to apply for credit cards, loans and etc.. even being able to save them money, the call center and telephone banking sales was not my thing. I resigned on good terms.

    Advice to Management

    When it comes to outbound sales at the call center, I recommend not calling customers after 5:30-6 pm.
