    I worked at First Niagara Financial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    you receive a paycheck every 2 weeks

    Cons

    -no opportunity for advancement even if you are more than qualified for the job openings
    -everything operates on favoritism, even if you have the best numbers you are not promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know all employees and utilize the talent that you have, instead of promoting off of favoritism

    Former Employee - Customer Service in Harleysville, PA

    I worked at First Niagara Financial full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people I worked with daily. My vacation and flexibility since my supervisor was in Buffalo.

    Cons

    They lay people off left and right.
    They don't know the market they got into when they bought Harleysville National Bank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your market and stop putting fluff in your employees ears about the culture and how great it is. Not really that great if you're laying off employees all the time. If they would have done proper due diligence they wouldn't need to lay good people off.
