Pros

Strong track record of success, with hard working employees.

Cons

Culture strongly discourages innovation, relying on past success to help them into the future. Company is very slow to adopt new ideas, requiring everyone around the table to agree before anything can move forward. Culture is hardworking, and everyone is looking for others to mess up, and when that happens, the vultures circle around.

    Pros

    M&T is a solid financial institution that is managed well. The company is a large regional bank within the northeast part of the US, and has name recognition in some markets like Buffalo, NY and Baltimore, MD. The company strives to excel in customer service and really treats its customers well.

    Cons

    The company does not promote from within. The areas with smaller marketshare have a severe disadvantage when trying to compete with much larger regional banks. The pay is on the lower end of the scale as far as banks go. There isn't much room for advancement unless you want to move to Buffalo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to promote from within, you have lost several great employees over the last few years to larger banks who were willing to promote with titles (i.e. Officer, AVP, VP, etc) and also job roles (Banker to ASM, ASM to Manager). No employee will be happy in a stagnant work environment. Some branch managers even seem to try to prevent their employees from moving up in the company for fear of losing the employee themselves through a transfer to another branch or department.
