I have been working at First Niagara Financial full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The training is great,learned much about the banking industry,met some great friends

Cons

Management at local branch was opposite of the rest of company. Seemed to believe her job was to cater to every possible cause but to deal with the bank. (republican events,etc). Personal life of management (mess)

Advice to Management

STOP. Look at what you have before you start on your next conquest. You are always going to be only as strong as your weakest link or manager

    I worked at First Niagara Financial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    IT is young and vibrant at FNFG. The people are friendly and supportive. Times are tight for everyone, but if you have a good idea, they will usually find a way to fund it.

    Cons

    The other side of the "young and vibrant" coin is their inexperience. For an enterprise IT environment, it's still a pretty small organization and yet they want to be grown ups so bad, they tend to adopt unnecessary bureaucratic procedure just because that's what the big banks do.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down growing the org chart, and focus on the people you already have. Say "no" to the lines of business when they want more work done than you have the people or experience to accomplish.
