I have been working at First Niagara Financial full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Jeans Day, lovely teller system, fun work environment, make your own branch signage

Cons

goals are very high and there is a lot of pressure when it comes to making them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop giving unreasonable goals and get a better incentive program for the tellers

    I worked at First Niagara Financial full-time

    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

    I have been working at First Niagara Financial

    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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
