    Pros

    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

    Pros

    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    The bank is kind of outdated.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.

    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.

    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I have never worked at a company where there wasn't atleast one pro until I worked at M&T Bank

    Cons

    First l I was hired as a Senior Teller but they had no proper training for that position. Then when I was going back to my branch that had no assistant manager as was the branch manager leaving before I got out of training which was horrible in itself. Then I find out that I have to take on the responsiblities of branch manager as well as senior teller but getting paid the same amount as tellers on my line with no experience as I already had several years experience in a financial setting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better training program with qualified trainers and pay people what their worth.

    Pros

    Steady Work. Pay is decent but not great.

    Cons

    Lots of non value added meeting time. Too many supervisors and not enough lower level people that actually do the work. Supervision spend their entire day in meetings "talking about what should get done".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to seriously review employee surveys when they come out you may learn what needs attention and you might be able to make it a better place for all to work at.

    Pros

    Company is focused on work life balance, working enviornement and co-workers are great and like family.

    Cons

    Raises are not that common, and upper management focuses on micro management and not the overall revenue to the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Positive feedback is better than always saying your work in not good enough.
