    No Communication

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company values helping the client.

    Cons

    Was not warned that my salaried status was changing to hourly pay until a month after it happened. IT system is from the stone age and creates customer frustration when employees cannot access information in a timely manner. Consesus-based decision making creates for a long waiting period for anything to change.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced growing position in commercial real estate loan administration. Good team to be apart of at the bank.

    Cons

    Poor Management in place at the time. Needed supervisory training in order to effectively coach staff. More training would have been beneficial. Appreciation and Recognition would have been appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key with your employees. Positive feedback is better received then constant negative feedback.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Above average pay in the industry. Benefit are ok not the best. Paid holidays. Company discounts.

    Cons

    No room to advance. Typically hire outside the company for promotions. Try to make you push products and not give customers the full details. Call nights calling on the same people over and over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Their your ticket to hit goals. If someone comes to you with ethical issues do something don't bush it off.

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

    Pros

    M&T is conservative. While that is not a bad thing, it is one of the few companies where all the employees recognize that the bank is conservative and the culture is built around that. Everyone is extremely friendly and willing to lend a hand or mentor. The work-life balance is also perfect. That, however, does not work for everyone and can drive particularly ambitious people away.

    Cons

    People are always asking for feedback before things are pushed through. It is great that the bank cares about its employees' opinions, but it also means change takes a long time to occur.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like where the bank is going and where it stands. It has maintain a solid foundation and continues to do so, but it might also be okay to allow a little ambition to seep through so that there's faster progress.

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

    Pros

    Lots of growth potential as CT is expanding
    Recognition of a job well done by many levels of management
    Interesting work to be done
    Almost every co worker is friendly and genuinely cares about others.
    I like what I do and management seems to care that you like your job.
    They attempt to comp time when lots of overtime hours have to be put in
    There are plenty of people willing to jump in and help where they can.

    Cons

    Management staff should spend more time helping grow young, talented, and ambitious individuals instead of programs like mdp that are almost all reserved for external candidates.

    Pay a more competitive wage. There is a wide variance in pay practices in different areas. You should not promote people into the lowest $ in the range for that job grade. It is a slap in the face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Within the next 10 years, a lot of the bench strength in CT will be retiring. Please be more interested in developing those who want to fill those positions. Mdp program should be more than a feel-good and should be half internal candidates. Take a little less notice of people's titles when considering opinions.

    Pros

    Great Company to work for. They pay you great, work hours are wonderful and my co workers were also good people.

    Cons

    High turnover rate due to issues with money such as overages or shortages, fraudulent checks or cash. Very sales driven.

    Pros

    Hours are 9-5 and they won't play any overtime. The work is easy enough once you get the hang of it. My co workers are friendly and have been very helpful.

    Cons

    The work is inconsistent, some days I am really busy and then I will go days without doing more than an hour of work. The computers are extremely old and they need to update their software.
