    I worked at M&T Bank as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    My manager was very easy to talk to and always willing to help. She provided excellent feedback and was ready to back you up when you were right. My teammates and other coworkers were friendly and always willing to answer questions. The atmosphere was very comfortable as my position did not require micromanaging.

    Cons

    I was under a 12-month contract. When a position opened on my team for a permanent position, I was told I would not be granted an interview because I was not a "true" employee of M&T and only internal employees would be considered. Internal employees included term and temp employees who worked directly for the bank. It turns out that other internal employees were also excluded because they knew how to do their jobs extremely well and were more than competent. The hiring manager obviously wanted only mediocre employees who would not be considered a threat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiding behind ridiculous ad hoc rules and hire people who are best for the bank and for the customers, not those who are yesmen.
