    I have been working at M&T Bank as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was always busy and very rarely had to ask for work.

    Cons

    The company culture is a little cold and very serious (not a lot of room to have fun with the work).

    Advice to Management

    Engage other interns with one another.

    I worked at M&T Bank as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was definitely a good first internship and a good way to get experience. I met a lot of great people and if the financial industry was a long term goal of mine it would be a great company to work for.

    Cons

    I did no real work during the summer. I was labeled a technology intern and the hardest piece of technology I worked with was Microsoft Excel. I felt extremely undervalued at $12 per hour, gained no real world technological experience. My job was boring and tedious and was basically glorified data entry.

    Advice to Management

    Be more up front about actual responsibilities and compensate your interns at a competitive rate. $12 an hour in the tech industry is laughable and embarrassing. M&T Bank is now my fallback plan for this summer if for some reason I can't get a more reasonable offer.

    Pros

    Decent Pay
    Nice Intern program
    Everyone is very nice and willing to help you learn about their side of the business

    Cons

    Most of the members are older so many of them are not up to date with many of the newer technologies. Makes working with them difficult if they can barely navigate their own computer

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to recruit young people you will be in trouble soon if you don't bring in some new fresh ideas.

    I worked at M&T Bank (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful people, all very helpful and nice and wanting to see you succeed. Very flexible work hours. Tons of networking and learning opportunities for interns.

    Cons

    Some red tape due to being a bigger company and a bank. Interns get almost no privileges on work computers so installing necessary programs to work on projects was difficult.

    I have been working at M&T Bank as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is really friendly, the work area is nice, work life balance is perfect, flexible schedule, lots of parking spots, good cafeteria food

    Cons

    The work there becomes monotonous and it can get quite boring. There isn't a lot of opportunities and the work you do doesn't seem to be paid attention to
