Pros

- Conservative banking culture, very stable
- Senior Management very dedicated to the Buffalo area
- Realistic benefits package, decent paid time off

Cons

- Departmental management is very threatened by skillful employees
- After 10 years of service you are still one of the "newbies"
- Limited career advancement potential
- "Employee Engagement" is used as a tool to determine management performance, therefore it is wielded as a weapon against employees if departmental ratings are poor
- Very little chance at decent salary increases, unless you are a "favorite"
- Middle management unresponsive or oblivious to the problems within departmental management

Advice to Management

This company has the potential to be so much more than it currently is. I was once incredibly proud to say that I was an employee of M&T Bank. There are problems within your departmental management that are pandemic throughout the organization. The divisive nature of their relationships and the adversarial tone between departments makes it harder to return each day. There are current employees at the bank afraid to speak their mind and quietly biding time until they leave for fear of the retribution against them if they speak out. Something needs to change or you will continue to lose the talent that you invest so heavily to attract.

    Older systems, inefficient business processes, slow to change.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage "customer service" mentality both toward external and internal customers. Conduct performance management; there are a lot of people who are in their jobs just because they've been there for 20 years. Encourage efficiency and reward employees for improving efficiencies.
