    Regional Sales Manager

    Retail Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee)
    Binghamton, NY

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsIt 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 Senior Managementkeep doing what you have been doing.
