I worked at First Niagara Financial

Pros

good entry-level position to obtain basic experience

Cons

Hard to take advantage of training offered due to the immediate supervisor's lack of support
Lack of support in setting/achieving career goals
Lack of communication/respect towards anyone lower on the career ladder
Lack of response to employee concerns from both the immediate supervisors and the HR

Advice to ManagementAdvice

make a greater effort to listen to front-line employes and address their concerns
assist in professional development and goal-achievement, do not simply issuing directives
be more aware of the day-to-day functioning of the offices

    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 like to work here but the salary leaves much to be desired.

    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.
