    I worked at M&T Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with amazing people in my time at M&T Bank. They knew all of the ins and outs of the job, and had more experience in work than I had in life. We were a family. A great benefit of the job is, after working here, you will understand the world of banking and troubles you may have had in the past will be put in a new light, and you may not have those troubles again. Check clearing processes, what makes a check negotiable, and understanding business days- all things one believes they understand until they work in banking. You'd be surprised.

    Cons

    The work can be challenging if you have trouble paying close attention to details. One oversight in a check cashed could mean your job if it's fraudulent and, say, didn't notice the font on the check was different than what is on file. If you're there long enough, you might notice anyone hired under you might be paid more. Good luck fighting for that raise on the basis of having more experience, no matter how much that is. The least you might be given is a bump up to what that individual is making but not more.

    Advice to Management

    Management should offer training and advancement opportunities to senior staff, some whose experience is 15+ years. I saw qualified individuals overlooked for positions because maybe they were missing one experience, like visiting other branches, and the opportunity for doing such thing was never suggested for them. It leaves those individuals in the dark and wondering why they wasted their time working for a company that obviously does not care about the dedication they made.
