Pros

Great company when it started out, very involved in helping you obtain licensing and learning the business

Cons

Can be disorganized as they continue to grow and buy other banks, current employee's can feel forgotten about as other employees coming on board from the bank's First Niagara bought seem to take top priority

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't forget about the employee's who helped make you who you are today

    Pros

    Somewhat collaborative culture.
    Decent salaries for W. New York.

    Cons

    Unintentional bait and switch...company needs to learn true strategy.
    People are nice, but the level of outside/large company experience at management/senior level hinders the company growth potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs to restructure itself in order to clearly understand your potential career path.
    Advancement maybe possible only if you are in the right role.

    Pros

    Not many, Benefits are pretty good for now but word of insurance being cut some next year is circulating.

    Cons

    company does not care about employees at all. Raises are measly if you are lucky to get one. Most locations are short staffed at all times so you end up not being able to take break while customers yell at you for making them wait.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give up and sell. Most employees here have given up and are looking elsewhere.
