I have been working at First Niagara Financial

Pros

Good people to work with. Lunch is often provided at no cost. Recently acquired HSBC branches throughout north east. Cool logo.

Cons

Difficult to move up or even laterally. Some lazy people have found their way to the top. May be expanding to quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look to some of the youner employees during expansion. Some of the old guard still can't scan and e-mail a document in less than 5 minutes.

No opinion of CEO
