    Pros

    I was a member of the MDP program. I specialized in Retail Banking. They give you great product training, great sales and communication training through classes, and sponsor your investment and insurance licenses. Overall, they invest in your success as a young retail banker. Will support you moving within the M&T footprint.

    Cons

    Your experience will vary greatly depending on your branch. Branch traffic is dying down, but your sales goals are not. The job is very straightforward-you are either servicing or selling, and you are doing it the M&T way. They aren't a flexible organization, be it with regulatory or HR related policies. Very little investment in technology. Simply put, you'll be in a branch with pressure to make sales, and you better strictly follow all the rules.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology. Spend some $ on employees.

    Pros

    easy going, friendly co-workers, has potential to change if they embrace technology more. career opportunities are available and there are many different avenues you can take once in.

    Cons

    Technology is still stuck in the 80's, manual processes, simple tasks are made complex for no reason. front end users voices are dismissed or unheard.

    Advice to Management

    embrace technology, allow your employees to be creative, listen to your front end users, come up with a mission or vision statement that everyone can get behind. Executives should show their face more through road shows or video conference to make connection with their staff, instead of quarterly emails.

    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 Management

    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.

    Great team work and partners on the branch level

    Little support on the mortgage side. Made you feel like they didn't want to be in mortgage buisness.

    Advice to Management

    Work with their team and not against their team.
