    Pros

    Great job growth opportunities, conservative culture, great coworkers. Strong company. Cares about its employees.

    Cons

    Annual raises could be improved

    Advice to Management

    Focusing less on low employee costs and more on retaining top talent will decrease costs related to recruiting & training and the loss of knowledge

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the customers. They truly appreciate great customer service. The staff was very enthusiastic and took great pride in their work.

    Cons

    Staffing sometimes caused me to feel rushed on certain days while I was doing commercial transactions and managing the vault cash simultaneously.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a great idea if everyone within the branch were able to share the workload concerning the handling of commercial deposits and managing the vault cash at least once a week.

    Pros

    M&T Bank has employed some solid managers that are willing to develop their people and help guide their career path.

    Cons

    The health benefits are quite awful, as is the industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology and your current staff; re-evaluate compensation on a regular basis and allow more than minimal raises or continue to lose valuable staff.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. I love coming to work we are like a family. Its nice working 9-5 5 days a week.

    Cons

    Salaries tend to be less than other financial institutions which means they have a high turnover . Short staffed all the time.Health insurance is sub par, high deductible and high monthly premium. I came in as an RBI with 10 years of banking experience but a newer employee came in as an RB II with less experience doesn't seem to be fair. Technology is outdated and counter proactive

    Advice to Management

    Try finding a better health care carrier or pay employees more. Be consistent when hiring staff and spend money on technology. Higher more employees to fill in key area of the bank
