I have been working at First Niagara Financial

Pros

Great community environment in the branches, sales goals are important as well as audits, but there is a community feel

Cons

There are people who work there that do not fit the mold of the company and the company does not get rid of them

Advice to ManagementAdvice

keep going on the path that you are going with your personel and branches, fire people sooner when it is known there are problems.

    I have been working at First Niagara Financial

    Pros

    The best reason for me to work at First Niagara Bank is the fact that I have 5 weeks vacation

    Cons

    The management has a major problem with letting the employees know that they are appreciated.
    Except for a Chosen few.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think of everybody when there are reviews, everyone needs more money not just a small percentage.

    Pros

    The company has acceptable benefits and holidays, bonus and yearly merit.

    Cons

    Company does not seem to promote within or try to develop employees along the way so they will a chance pursue their career goals and be more satisfy with what they are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company should value its employees and use good talents. Promote continous internal development in functional as well as leadership training. This will give employees a sense of satisfaction in their jobs, a loyalty to work for the company, and a proud attitude in representing the company to promote the company's products and services to their clients. This will make make to employ work harder as this is the job they love.
