    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong investment in their employees with training for security licenses to management principals and everything in between.

    Cons

    Hours can be long and if something goes wrong at the branch you cannot leave until it is resolved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in employee welfare and improve the software.

    I worked at M&T Bank

    Pros

    I had a great office experience. My co workers were very friendly and helpful. We worked together as a team and made it easy to come to work. They had good benefits along with paid time off.

    Cons

    The raises are scarce, and not many options to rise inside the company unless you want to relocate to Buffalo. Sometimes I felt that they were more worried about the fee income on the accounts than how the changes would effect the consumer. Upper management seemed to get the bulk of the bonuses and raises while the general population would not even get a cost of living raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees more as they are the face of the bank on a daily basis. Spread the bonuses and raises across the board as having disgruntled employees talking to customers everyday is not a profitable way of doing business.

    I worked at M&T Bank

    Pros

    Great manager who went to bat for her staff and who made me feel like a valuable employee. Company benefits could have been better but could also have been far worse.

    Cons

    Bank begrudges every dollar spent on or for a non-income producing cost centers. Management is not interested in employee feed back unless it is full of glowing praise for the bank. Unless you are one of the "chosen ones", it is impossible to move up the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to listen to all employee feedback and not write off the negative as just disgruntled individuals.

    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    M&T is great at promoting within. If you do your job and you can sell there is plenty of room for advancement.

    Cons

    The systems are very out of date, this results in time consuming maintenance. There is a huge focus on the number of appointments made instead of the quality. M&T also loves to micromanage....there is a report for every report!! This is frustrating for employees who do there job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees need more of an incentive to sell. The compensation does not seem worth the effort.

    It is a very flexible job. Good for students or people who need to have flexible.

    The bank is kind of outdated. The things you could do in five seconds at another bank takes 10 years.

    Pros

    You get the work life balance and in certain cities a lot of people know about M&t

    Cons

    Depending on the personalities at your Branch they don't empower you to do work on your own they migh micromanage you. With people who are internal they offer them a good wage or good promotional pay. Way too much micromanaging. Poor accountability with other co-workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In training for new hires they should make sure that when there are problems with Staff snaching money out of each other's hand or being rude to one another, they need to have team building meetings

    Former Employee - Senior Teller in Linthicum, MD

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are really good, work schedule is consistent, coworkers are decent depending on branch, stable, small referral goals compared to other banks.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than other banks, no communication between upper management and branches, depending on your branch manager you will not move up. Little room for advancement. Managers play favorites. POLITICS!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within and CROSS TRAIN your employees. Your employee shouldn't have to beg to get training for their position or to do a better job. Stop advancing people based on who they know or whose behind they kissed!

    Pros

    Fast paced growing position in commercial real estate loan administration. Good team to be apart of at the bank.

    Cons

    Poor Management in place at the time. Needed supervisory training in order to effectively coach staff. More training would have been beneficial. Appreciation and Recognition would have been appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key with your employees. Positive feedback is better received then constant negative feedback.
