    Pros

    They take development of new professionals who are willing to work hard, seriously. A bank with a strong presence in the north east, and plenty of growth opportunity if you are willing to move to Buffalo, NY.

    Cons

    Prepare yourself for corporate level politics at a regional bank level. The Management Trainee Program and Sales Development Program graduates eclipse other hard working employees who do not come from this background. High attrition within the leadership and branch level is also an issue.

    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Good work / life balance - Standard banking holidays and standard 401K / medical benefits

    Cons

    - M&T is infamous for below market pay - Promotions get you a 2% raise (that's two percent NOT twenty) and you can't negotiate for more - HR is pitiful; always claims to revamp pay system but doesn't - Poor advancement - Outdated technology - This is the first place I've worked that doesn't provide free coffee - Managers are unqualified for their positions

    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I can't think of something to write here, besides the fact that a few friends were there and that was cool, and they let you buy lunch

    Cons

    Horrible managers that would often do some very sketchy things, many associates are beligerent and disgusting and encouraged to be so, others were just rude and ignorant

    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stable, easy, incredibly flexible (but I've designed my job to be this). Two things will survive the nuclear hollocaust: roaches and M&T Bank.

    Cons

    Systemic under-investment in IT, not enough support for your front-line sales, no proprietary access to databases or systems that help a salesman(women) in their job....basically one has to pay for these tools out of own pocket. M&T, you're sending us to a gun fight with a hand knife.

    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Some of senior management is great, but unfortunately not many. Many employees, including management still believe in the former culture.

    Cons

    Salary is not comparable to other companies of the same size. They have dropped full health insurance coverage to a HSA for $8 less bi-weekly. Poor middle management. Prefer to cover up issues instead of fix them. High turnover in key support and functional positions. Low employee engagement. HR ignores grievances of labor law violations in addition to M&T Bank policy violations. M&T's culture has changed quite a bit since I started 8 years ago, and unfortunately not for the better. Please take the advice that us middle managers are trying to convey.

    Technology is behind its times The company is still a boys club Education is not always valued Some departments still exhibit the "It's not what you know... it's who you know" philosophy
