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

    Pros

    The bank is growing and on a recent acquisition binge which doesn't show signs if letting up in the near future. That means there's is room for growth and expansion depending on the department you're in, but likely most of them. Pay is higher than average for comparable jobs, at least in the Western New York area. This is a bank that cares about it's bottom line, obviously, but it also cares about the communities it operates in and it's employees, in as much as you would expect from a bank.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better but are roughly on par with most regional and large banks. The 401(k) match could be more generous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time. Opportunity is plentiful.

    Pros

    The culture of people first is evident throughout the organization. M&T Bank values its customers and employees, they demonstrate this with every decision made at the senior management level. It's not by luck that it stock price is amongst the highest in the industry, and has remained at that level for the past 10 years.

    Cons

    It is a very fast paced organization. If you are not willing to work hard, focus and be a leader; this is not the organization for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep doing what you have been doing.
