I have been working at M&T Bank full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Very stable work environment. They are an excellent company that will certainly be around a long time and only continue to grow. Good work recognition programs are pretty good. I loved working in downtown Buffalo. That probably sounds like a joke, but it was great during the summer to finish work on Thursdays and just walk over to LaFayette Sq (and more recently) to the harbor for the free concert series.

Cons

They're pretty cheap. They don't pay much and they definitely have some business structural issues to improve efficiency.

Advice to Management

Pay people more. Offer more career self-improvement and your employees will be worth more to you in the long run

    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company has had over 135 quarters of straight profits. Stable-does not look to merge with larger banks.

    Cons

    Certain employees with many years and experience are not promoted to Officers of the bank (extra perks such as bonuses) when other people with purely generous managers are promote (title/pay) with a yr or 2 tenure. Luck of the draw!

    Advice to Management

    Make sure HR works to ensure each person has a career path. Not everyone does. For someone who likes the culture of the bank, they may leave because of immobility.


  2. "Very average bank that is unwilling to develop their employees"

    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the people you work with are very nice people.
    Good if you want to learn the banking industry

    Cons

    Upper management is only concerned with making sure their region meets their goals and not the development of each branch and its employees.
    They refuse to hire from within
    Pay is below average

    Advice to Management

    Develop your current employees and they will be more likely to stick around. Stop hiring from the outside and hire within. With little opporunity for advancement nobody wants to stick around.
