    I worked at First Niagara Financial as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Intelligent and understanding management, positive work environment, great internship program, and solid work-life balance. Even as an intern, I was treated with respect and given a relevant and highly visible workload. Getting time off was usually easy (as an intern), and the work / life balance was good.

    Cons

    Given the company size, it's sometimes difficult to get much variety in the workload compared to say, a smaller consulting company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great management. Understanding, and pushes employees to excel and grow. Keep it up!

    I worked at First Niagara Financial full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get lots of free stuff. Blankets, key chains, pens, etc.

    Cons

    You have more than one job to do and getting referrals means everything in the company. They have also been laying off people randomly and demoting some as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower the teller referrals
