    Pros

    You learn a lot if you work in marketing organization. Job security is good.

    Cons

    Management either like you or they do not. So if you are hot shot MBA, do not take a chance at this bank to build a career.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time

    Pros

    I had a good time working at my particular branch, great team dynamics and the manager was not in my face all the time. They do give you your space to do your job and provide you the important tools necessary to maintain an organized and productive place of work.

    Cons

    During my tenure, upper management decided to cut hours across the board, basically saying that the branches can get everything up and running in 15 minutes as well as close the entire branch in 15 or less. The few times I met with upper management(excluding regional manager) I had a sense they were a bit uppity and maybe a little condescending.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate more on doing the job right and not quickly. Provide better leads if you are going to insist on constant outbound calling.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time

    Pros

    You will be crossed trained to perform various jobs due to consolidation (Teller transactions, business banking loans, closing of investment and insurance business, etc.) which leads to a lot knowledge about retail banking.

    Cons

    Production and productivity is not the main focus. There are so many systems to learn and distractions just to close basic deals. They want you to perform various jobs in under staffed branches. Upper management is out of touch and do a great job stringing you along.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with team members - family friendly environment. Nice work/life balance.

    Cons

    No strategic direction from executive leadership. Average to below average raises. HQ is in Buffalo, NY. Too many acquisitions, no overall plan to leverage local expertise acquired in acquisitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your staff - do not micro manage

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

    Pros

    Co-workers were great to work with because we were all in the same mess.

    Cons

    Management did not care. Too many temps being hired. Too much turnover. Armchair managers that did not know the jobs of their employee but acted like they did. Management had their own agenda and lacked communications skills to share with their team. Upper management are out for themselves and blame there workers instead of blaming themselves. Bullying goes on under management noses and they don't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management and even corporate have been told on a yearly basis their are problems and they refuse to do anything. HR sides with management on a consistent basis. Even with providing advice they would not act.

    Pros

    Great people all around. Not an intense environment and you feel like you can be yourself. Thats about it.

    Cons

    Not many chances to move up within the company. "Gray" is a good way to describe the day to day, which can kind of drive you nuts sometimes.
