    Pros

    M&T is a caring organization; there are great opportunities for those who work hard; the pay is better than average.

    Cons

    The workplace culture is heavily dependent on the department you work in (and the head of said department); things can be very political.

    Pay attention to engagement scores. You had/have departments where management is poisoning the well.

    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time

    Pros

    All depends on the department you get in. Some are flexible with scheduling and others are not at all.

    Cons

    The health insurance is terrible for such a large company. The raises are a joke and it's known if you want and deserve a decent raise you have to leave and get rehired six months later.

    Pros

    Employees, Rewarding finding beneficial solutions to customers, Easy job, Company values, Employee discounts

    Cons

    Pay, Working most saturdays, Opportunities for advancement- most good opportunities require relocation to Buffalo, NY, Some management, Technology- Lack of Tech increases customer interaction times, to an extreme, when customers are already in a hurry. Also, working in any retail you can see a tough audience. (Drunks, body fluids, substance abusers, liars, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in employees and technology. Upper management will listen and give advice but nothing comes from it. Also, invest in more corporate offices/back office jobs throughout the footprint instead of just upstate, NY.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time

    Pros

    Long term stability, Good Benefits
    Strongest bank in Western New York

    Cons

    Compensation was lackluster. Typically a decent starting salary, but 2% each year beyond if you're lucky. Bonus was hit and miss, and zero my last year, despite exceeding performance metrics.

    Advice to Management

    Desk plaques celebrating milestones are nice but they don't pay the mortgage. Reward good employees and maintain a positive productive workforce with appropriate raises and bonuses.
