    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time

    Pros

    - great culture - great work/life balance - great springboard for other careers - the cost of living is extremely cheap - great mentorship

    Cons

    - compensation could be better - air of complacency that comes from employees that have been with the bank for decades - it shouldn't be as hard to fire people as it is - bank relies so much on consensus that it stunts its own growth

    Advice to Management

    Work on trying to retain young talent. There are just not enough things in Buffalo for Generation X to stay.

    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Job security -Paid vacation time & sporadic/sick time -Benefits 401k matching 100% up to 3% 50% up to 6% -healthcare, dental, etc.

    Cons

    -Low wage/salary rate vs. the area average (15 percentile) -health insurance coverage isn't the best -Rx's are still very expensive

    Advice to Management

    To provide a more competitive wage/salary considering the average occupational rate. Very difficult for employees to meet their financial needs especially for recent college graduates with student loans and a family to support. Would increase the workforce quality, employee morale, engagement and decrease employee turnover.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was part of the sales development program, it was a fantastic program. Lots of traveling and training for the first 6 months. There is a lot of networking with people throughout the states. The program prepared you to get licensed in health and life insurance. If you don't get license during those month you are in the program I suggest get out. Your position will change down to a teller if you don't take the program serious. If you do pass, great your on to a new adventure and pay increase.

    Cons

    There is really nothing bad I have to say about this except be great to your customers if you don't you will get a bad review and the manager will bring it to your attention.

    Advice to Management

    The manager was there but really not there if you know what I mean. The manager would always keep to herself without directing us what to do. She would go into the office and not even interact with us. I felt there were plenty of times I was on my own.
