Pros

Great work environment, conservative well managed bank. The Bank recently announced its plans to acquire Provident Banc in Maryland, which will enhance the company's reach and growth prospects in the mid-Atlantic region. Layoffs tend to be rare and are almost always related to mergers with other banks so job security is a plus.

Cons

Lack of career advancement options if you're not part of the few selective development programs. Also, it may be difficult to meet senior management without spending at least sometimes in the headquarters in Buffalo.

Advice to Management

Compensation, whie not bad, could be more competitive.

    Pros

    Some great smart people but too many levels of management. If you had relatives or a friend above you could go places.

    Cons

    Technology wise they liked to try and build their own systems rather than buy something that was off the shelf. Not smart paying tons of IT people to write software that took 3 years to build, when for 20K they could have bought it and better? Consider them 5y or so behind tech wise compared to most banks.

    There are a number dealings with M&T that I can't really talk about.
    In a nut shell, Sr. Management handled a known problem very badly.
    I left after repeated issues escalated.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better "people" and those who have a better mind for innovation.

    Market share is not huge in my area a lot of cold calling.

    Advice to Management

    Great job, keep up the good work.
