    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    A 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make 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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Very 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 ManagementAdvice

    Update 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.

    Pros

    Strong bank. Great people. Strong credit culture. Substantial investment in training programs. Large amount of community involvement, from both the bank and individual employee level.

    Cons

    IT processes and services could use improvement. Sales folks are required to do too much; business development, credit underwriting, portfolio management, etc. Could use additional resources around portfolio management and more streamlined onboarding process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great engagement, support and leadership throughout the local community. Strong local leadership. Improvement in IT services both internally and for end clients needs to be improved.

    Excellent Career Start

    Current Employee - MDP  in  Baltimore, MD
    Current Employee - MDP in Baltimore, MD

    Pros

    The MDP gives a fresh college graduate the opportunity to rub elbows with senior management in ALL areas of the bank. There is immense training on sales, management, communication, and leadership skills. If you are in the retail side, you will be provided with a foundation of skills that will allow you to venture into all aspects of banking. If you start in retail, you will be given the opportuntiy to manage much sooner then your peers. You cannot be afraid of sales and having an outgoing personality is a must!

    Cons

    Pay raises can be somewhat limited, but given the current state of the economy this seems to be the trend in all banks. The incentive program could use some tweaking as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. Management is very, very good. Access to management is easy and there is constant dialogue.
