    It's a job.

    Relationship Banker I (Current Employee) Lancaster, PA

    ProsNice people generally. They pay you.

    ConsLittle to no recognition for work done if it's not sales. Constantly changing goals and focus... literally every 6 weeks. Low wages, non competitive and minuscule increases.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Loved the people, hated the politics

    Branch Manager (Former Employee) Frederick, MD

    ProsCan help customers, autonomy, career opportunities

    ConsPolitics can cause you to not get promotions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPolitics are not the way to run a business, keep in mind those that are interested in being promoted.

    Its a living!

    Operations Middle Manager (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsSteady Work. Pay is decent but not great.

    ConsLots of non value added meeting time. Too many supervisors and not enough lower level people that actually do the work. Supervision spend their entire day in meetings "talking about what should get done".

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to seriously review employee surveys when they come out you may learn what needs attention and you might be able to make it a better place for all to work at.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Relationship Banker I

    Relationship Banker I (Former Employee)

    ProsI had a good time working at my particular branch, great team dynamics and the manager was not in my face all the time. They do give you your space to do your job and provide you the important tools necessary to maintain an organized and productive place of work.

    ConsDuring my tenure, upper management decided to cut hours across the board, basically saying that the branches can get everything up and running in 15 minutes as well as close the entire branch in 15 or less. The few times I met with upper management(excluding regional manager) I had a sense they were a bit uppity and maybe a little condescending.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConcentrate more on doing the job right and not quickly. Provide better leads if you are going to insist on constant outbound calling.

    Manager

    Operations Manager (Former Employee) Wilmington, DE

    ProsI enjoyed working with team members - family friendly environment. Nice work/life balance.

    ConsNo strategic direction from executive leadership. Average to below average raises. HQ is in Buffalo, NY. Too many acquisitions, no overall plan to leverage local expertise acquired in acquisitions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower your staff - do not micro manage

    Good Old School Bank

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsM&T Bank is a nice alternative to the bigger banks. Managment seems to genuinely care about employees and offers OK benefits and competitive salaries.

    ConsWill do anything for employees as long as it doesn't interfere with returns to shareholders.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees like adults by communicating about the company's direction, opportunities and challenges.

    teller manager

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIt is a great place to bank.

    Consonly a decent place to work. Whatever position you are hired in, will pretty much be the position you will stay in.

    Good company to work with but, experience may vary from market to market.

    Relationship Banker III (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsCompany is focused on work life balance, working enviornement and co-workers are great and like family.

    ConsRaises are not that common, and upper management focuses on micro management and not the overall revenue to the bottom line.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPositive feedback is better than always saying your work in not good enough.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    New rules are not really working for the employees

    Senior Teller (Current Employee) Lutherville Timonium, MD

    ProsGreat hours, flexible schedule for work-life balance

    ConsManagement is getting worst by the day. The company puts too much emphasis on sales.
    They are reducing the budget by cutting hours, cutting the supplies budget to the penny. Meanwhile all of those are still needed to provide good customer service and function throughout the day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be good to actually work on your employees' development plan instead of just leaving it as a written sentence in the book. An employee in a position he/she is not suited for is not happy and will never deliver his/her best performance.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
