    Pros

    Really good about work life balance. No fear of losing your job, generous vacation, fair pay, decent working conditions. Good banking benefits.

    Cons

    Large pay disparities as outside talent usually gets more than current employees in order to draw them in. Success is only slightly based on merit, the main focus is how well you fit into the M&T culture. The health care plan is very high deductible.

    I worked at M&T Bank part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay was fair. In my experience, the hours were flexible, and goals/quotas were obtainable.

    They also promoted a great team atmosphere within the branch.

    Cons

    Few issues which customers have were able to be dealt with in branch. It began to get old and redundant having to refer to another department within the company in order to obtain simple answers for the customer.
