I have been working at M&T Bank

Pros

The MDP gives a fresh college graduate the opportunity to rub elbows with senior management in ALL areas of the bank. There is immense training on sales, management, communication, and leadership skills. If you are in the retail side, you will be provided with a foundation of skills that will allow you to venture into all aspects of banking. If you start in retail, you will be given the opportuntiy to manage much sooner then your peers. You cannot be afraid of sales and having an outgoing personality is a must!

Cons

Pay raises can be somewhat limited, but given the current state of the economy this seems to be the trend in all banks. The incentive program could use some tweaking as well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No advice. Management is very, very good. Access to management is easy and there is constant dialogue.

    Pros

    It's like the federal government - once you get in, you do nothing, there isn't much competition, not much is expected of you and get a paycheck.

    Cons

    Many of the people who work here are dinosaurs. They don't like change and people are promoted based on tenure (which goes into the decades) rather than ability and previous experience (at outside firms/banks). The senior management (and I can only speak of the securities/brokerage side of the business) is intimidated by outsiders (people who have worked at higher tier brokerage firms) because they don't want anyone to "outshine" them. Many things are done a certain way because "that's the way it has always been done" and no one questions or attempts to improve - or modernize things. Much of the senior management (again, on the securities side) has no other practical experience outside of M&T, and many have floated back and forth between the bank side and the securities side - but again, most have ONLY ever worked for M&T.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit people from other brokerage firms if you want to make a go of M&T Securities. Accept knowledge and experience and don't be intimidated - I am sure the bank side will take you back.
