    Former Employee - Personal Banker in Rockville, MD

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Offer 10 min break for every two hour work. 30 min lunch break. work location is good. Good benefits. Strong bank on east coast. strong credit culture. substantial investment in training programs. large amount of community involvement, from both the bank and individual employee level.

    Cons

    Very difficult to get promoted. Push you to meet your sales quota everyday. Limited training. Poor management. Low Salary. Hard to meet sales goals. lack of team spirits. Unprofessional colleagues. Very conservative business strategies. they run a very tight ship. that means they do more with less and specifically means that even during busy times, they are cautious to hire. Also means that there is a high amount of focus on expenses to include salary expenses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-learn how to run a good business. learn how to improve your banking products. learn how to treat your customers

    Pros

    Company is focused on work life balance, working enviornement and co-workers are great and like family.

    Cons

    Raises are not that common, and upper management focuses on micro management and not the overall revenue to the bottom line.

    Positive feedback is better than always saying your work in not good enough.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time for more than 10 years

    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.

    Keep doing what you are doing to help contractors settle into the environment.
