Our heritage dates back to 1935, when 24-year-old Harold Webster Smith founded the bank with $25,000 borrowed from family and friends. Then known as First Federal Savings and Loan of Waterbury, Connecticut, our purpose was to help make homeownership a realistic dream for people, and our values centered on putting people first.
Over the years, we have expanded to become a leading regional bank in the Northeast with over $25 billion in assets and 176 banking centers from greater New York City to Boston. Today, we offer the full range of financial services, delivered by close to 3,000 employees.
But while we have grown, our core values have remained unchanged. We still put people first -- acting with responsibility, respect, ethical behavior, citizenship and teamwork. We call these principles The Webster Way. They bring us together, set us apart, and create an unshakeable core that is unique to Webster.
By following The Webster Way, we ensure that we’re living up to our customers and each other.
The Webster Way
One of our most important core values is to respect the dignity of every individual. For our employees, it means fostering an inclusive environment that embraces the unique ideas and contributions of a diverse workforce.
We believe that diversity is critical to our growth, innovation and capabilities as a financial services institution. Being able to draw upon the diversity of perspectives, experiences, cultures, genders, and age allows us to adapt to our fast-changing environment and ensures our competitive advantage.
Being passionate about making a difference in people's lives is what working at Webster is all about. Since our founding in 1935, we've maintained a values-guided culture that goes above and beyond - for our customers, communities and each other.

I have been working at Webster Bank full-time
Great benefits, growth potential, career resources. The overall feel of Webster is one big family/community even though we are around 3000 employees.
Not great maternity leave options. They are decent but other companies have better pay while on leave.
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Webster Bank (New Bedford, MA) in September 2017.
Brief phone interview with someone from HR and then she forwarded my information to the hiring manager. The hiring manager called me same day and set up an interview for the following morning.
