A good place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at M&T Bank as an intern for less than a year

ProsGreat location in downtown Buffalo. Fellow employees were all very nice and welcoming. Supervisors very accommodating and frequently checked in to make sure I was getting what I wanted out of the internship. Management made real efforts to focus on rewarding employees success, rather than punishing failures.

ConsIt's an 8-5 cubical desk job so that can get a little monotonous just by its nature.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up!

I made so many wonderful contacts and learned a tremendous amount from my internship... M&T changed my career prospects.

Finance Intern (Former Employee)
Buffalo, NY

I worked at M&T Bank as an intern for less than a year

ProsA lot of great networking opportunities, access to senior management, many learning opportunities. The bank is very stable and constantly growing, albeit at a slower pace than others but still growing while others may be taking losses and MTB is quite conservative.

ConsComplaints from some of the entry level workers as being stuck in their roles for too long, could pay a little more

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure to recognize the efforts of the underlings, increase pay a bit more and possibly get out of your comfort zones to continue making MTB the best

So far so good

Sales Development Program (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

I have been working at M&T Bank full-time for less than a year

ProsGood training programs for qualified individuals. Company is very stable and is always looking to grow through acquisitions.

ConsVery conservative culture. Do not have the best systems in place for employees or customers. Other banks are years ahead in offering more technology to customers and employees. Base salaries are lower than competitors.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpdate systems to make work more efficient and better for both customers and employees. Look at reducing costs through improved efficiencies and pass the savings on the employees or competitors will continue to steal the best talent.
