    I worked at M&T Bank part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Strong presence in both Buffalo and Baltimore. They care about the community, the benefits are good and for the most part their employees are happy.

    Cons

    They try to recruit top talent from elsewhere instead of developing that talent in the city they are located, often leads to high turnover. Undercut a lot of the other banks on starting salary, must come to M&T with experience to move up faster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cannot speak to Baltimore, but should focus more on recruiting top talent within Buffalo. We have plenty of intelligent people here in Buffalo that would be a lot less likely to leave your company after a couple years than these "top-tier" programs you recruit from.

    I worked at M&T Bank

    Pros

    The people who work here are funny, kind, considerate and truly one of the best groups of people you'll ever meet. They care about doing what's right and they care about the community.

    Cons

    They started as a small bank that's starting to really grow in size and complexity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose the heart of who you are. You are great at community and understanding the needs of your employees and the communities that you operate in. Trust your employees - let them help drive the strategies that will take you forward in to the future.

    I worked at M&T Bank

    Pros

    M&T Bank is a great company to work for! The staff are always friendly and engaging. You never feel "left" out or unappreciated! It has such a "hometown" feeling- where everybody knows everybody! Excellent benefits, such as medical, dental, vision, 401(k) and more (even for PT employees)!

    Cons

    If you are part-time, then the hours can be somewhat unpredictable since you are scheduled based on business needs. Also, the pay could be better...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please know that those working at the Branch level are doing the best we can! Being the "face" of a company can be both demanding and rewarding.

    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid, stable bank. Offers good time off policies to employees, particularly when you are an officer.

    Cons

    Training is weak and there is little commitment to employee growth and development. Compensation must be had at time of hire or at promotion because it will not come otherwise. Work-life balance is weak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow-through with the core values and the commitment we all pretend is there. Stop asking for more with less all the time without rewarding and compensating people fairly.
