    Pros

    Everyone has the client and customer at the heart of all of their decisions. I feel like my voice is heard and my opinions matter. The work I do makes a notable impact. During the pandemic quick action was taken to ensure safety of employees was a top of mind. Hybrid work environments are continued to be encouraged. M&T has also made Diversity a major focus this year.

    Cons

    As with most companies these days there are fewer people doing more work. Although a great vacation and time off policy is given as part of the benefits package, using it all would leave you very behind in your goals as there are no back ups in place.

    Staunch bank, don't believe the tech hype

    Pros

    PTO, nothing else to add

    Cons

    I became beyond fed up with the "tech renaissance" they flaunt, and so should you. It's a total front. There is no innovation, and new ideas are oppressed by old guard management whom remain an overwhelming presence. This bank has gone on tireless campaigns to lure in young tech talent only to assign them to old fashioned, intimidated management, who want nothing to do with change. They have scared off the majority if not all of local tech talent and are ramping up recruiting to unknowingly non-local talent, who surely have even less tolerance for old school stiffs. This bank does a great job presenting a facade of progression in tech, but behind the curtains it is exactly what you'd expect from a dinosaur company who has gone nowhere in decades. I was astounded, witnessing the rate of which talented engineers ran for the door within 1 year of tenure there. It's insane they are even trying to "transform" without first addressing the most obvious barrier, correcting the middle management regime whom are forcing engineers to jump ship and quite literally stifling progress. If you are a talented engineer, tread lightly, it's a trap. There is just something in the air there... a looming disdain and resentment for the younger generation. Oh and don't even think about career progression. They are using stack ranking to force attrition and this has compounded 10x the before mentioned problems because now the arena of employment is that of the hunger games.
