I have been working at M&T Bank

Pros

Large Corporation with great operations but outsiders will not be considered as change agents.

Cons

Department leaders are feeding off ideas from new comers to boost their career while keeping them from getting the credit they deserve: As a result, new comers are seen as outsiders and cannot really grow salary and/or position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

M&T Bank is an exciting place to work and it's managed with great professionalism. However, if someone has just 2-3 years experience with the bank, he/she will be seen as an outsider and will not be able to progress normally. If you don't have 13 years and more with the bank, forget about salary increases and/or growing: you'll be waiting while dept directors (insiders) are getting credit from your ideas and efforts.

    I worked at M&T Bank

    Pros

    - Conservative banking culture, very stable
    - Senior Management very dedicated to the Buffalo area
    - Realistic benefits package, decent paid time off

    Cons

    - Departmental management is very threatened by skillful employees
    - After 10 years of service you are still one of the "newbies"
    - Limited career advancement potential
    - "Employee Engagement" is used as a tool to determine management performance, therefore it is wielded as a weapon against employees if departmental ratings are poor
    - Very little chance at decent salary increases, unless you are a "favorite"
    - Middle management unresponsive or oblivious to the problems within departmental management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company has the potential to be so much more than it currently is. I was once incredibly proud to say that I was an employee of M&T Bank. There are problems within your departmental management that are pandemic throughout the organization. The divisive nature of their relationships and the adversarial tone between departments makes it harder to return each day. There are current employees at the bank afraid to speak their mind and quietly biding time until they leave for fear of the retribution against them if they speak out. Something needs to change or you will continue to lose the talent that you invest so heavily to attract.
