    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Successful business, very smart business people. More stock compensation if possible. Good place overall. Very good place to learn and build a career. I think you are doing a great job. People very engaged and nice overall. Performance oriented but not a shark tank.

    Cons

    No cafeteria...while growing regionally, nyc is not the headquarters. As such there are limited jobs outside of the client facing businesses they have in the region.

    Advice to Management

    More stock compensation if possible. Good place overall. Very good place to learn and build a career. I think you are doing a great job. People very engaged and nice overall. Performance oriented but not a shark tank.

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

    Pros

    Vacation time, flexibility with scheduling and remote work opportunities

    Cons

    Within the admin role not much growth opportunities or recognition for years of service and experience. All admins gave various roles and responsibilities but bank pays very generic even with new job titles. Bringing in all new inexperienced employees at same rate of pay or higher.

    Advice to Management

    Give more recognition to your senior admins with education and experience. Offer advancement opportunities and bank officer opportunities.
