    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.

    Pros

    Great culture. Everyone on our team is friendly, approachable, and willing to share their expertise. It's a great organization to grow your skills. Management is invested in your growth, work-life balance and ensuring that you have a positive experience in your tenure.

    Cons

    The company is extremely slow to adapt to change, especially changes in technology. Getting new software/applications is like pulling teeth. There is a general lack of innovation within the company - there are highly intelligent and innovative people working at the bank, but management seems focused on performing business as usual unless mandated otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Be more willing to embrace and adapt to change in industry and technology.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    M&T offers good hours, benefits, many locations, good vacation time, paid schooling.

    Cons

    Some management is allowed to let there authority become a power trip for them and are allowed to treat others rather poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to treating your employees as if you cared about them. Stop allowing some management to harass other employees.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    After completing the MDP program, I was given many opportunities to work on large-scale, visible projects. I had some very good managers who empowered me to do things the way I felt was necessary. If you have a lot of political savvy, you'll advance.

    Cons

    Good people are given great assignments, but you have to work a lot of extra hours to get them done. Still male-dominated leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk when it comes to work/life balance.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance in Buffalo. Fairly risk averse business strategy so company performance is stable.

    Cons

    You have to live in Buffalo! Long and dreary winters though a short summer is very pleasant. A lot of employees are locals and are likely to work there until they retire; when these individuals get into higher positions, it will reduce upward mobility for others as their spot won't open until they retire or are let go.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, if you take an initiative, do good work and can network, you have a bright future here.

    Cons

    Equity -- promotional and $$

    Advice to Management

    Create a process on how you promote people because different business lines become more or less attractive based on how quickly they promote their employees.
