No opinion of CEO

I worked at First Niagara Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great Salary! I enjoyed working with people who had been in the business for a very long time. I was always learning something new.

Cons

Constant movements in management caused negativity with employees and unwelcome changes. The overall atmosphere of the job after some of these changes was negative. All employees in my office were VERY unhappy when I left.

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to changes, peoples entire lives are affected by these changes. One person in the wrong position can cause serious loss of talent.

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Lunch is often provided at no cost. Recently acquired HSBC branches throughout north east. Cool logo.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up or even laterally. Some lazy people have found their way to the top. May be expanding to quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Look to some of the youner employees during expansion. Some of the old guard still can't scan and e-mail a document in less than 5 minutes.
