    Strong employer who cares about its employees and the communities that it operates in.

    Vice President (Current Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    ProsThe organization truly tries to do what's best for its employees and its shareholders. Employees are friendly making for a good working environment.

    ConsDue to the industry, the roles can be very structured. For me this is a "con" but for others it may be a "pro", it depends on your personal working style.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to consider multiple perspectives when determining their employee development, engagement, and retention strategy. Today's workforce is not "one size fits all".

    Marketing EA

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou learn a lot if you work in marketing organization. Job security is good.

    ConsManagement either like you or they do not. So if you are hot shot MBA, do not take a chance at this bank to build a career.

    Manager

    Operations Manager (Former Employee)
    Wilmington, DE

    ProsI enjoyed working with team members - family friendly environment. Nice work/life balance.

    ConsNo strategic direction from executive leadership. Average to below average raises. HQ is in Buffalo, NY. Too many acquisitions, no overall plan to leverage local expertise acquired in acquisitions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower your staff - do not micro manage

    Boys Club

    Financial Analyst III (Former Employee)
    Wilmington, DE

    ProsCo-workers were great to work with because we were all in the same mess.

    ConsManagement did not care. Too many temps being hired. Too much turnover. Armchair managers that did not know the jobs of their employee but acted like they did. Management had their own agenda and lacked communications skills to share with their team. Upper management are out for themselves and blame there workers instead of blaming themselves. Bullying goes on under management noses and they don't care.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement and even corporate have been told on a yearly basis their are problems and they refuse to do anything. HR sides with management on a consistent basis. Even with providing advice they would not act.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Old School Bank

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsM&T Bank is a nice alternative to the bigger banks. Managment seems to genuinely care about employees and offers OK benefits and competitive salaries.

    ConsWill do anything for employees as long as it doesn't interfere with returns to shareholders.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees like adults by communicating about the company's direction, opportunities and challenges.

    Nice environment

    Business & Planning Analyst (Current Employee)
    Lake Oswego, OR

    ProsGreat people all around. Not an intense environment and you feel like you can be yourself. Thats about it.

    ConsNot many chances to move up within the company. "Gray" is a good way to describe the day to day, which can kind of drive you nuts sometimes.
