    I worked at M&T Bank full-time

    Pros

    Associates are amazing to work with and willing to do whatever it takes

    Cons

    Upper level management is horrible and do not care about middle management. They give you their work to do on top of yours because they cannot be bothered.

    Advice to Management

    Remember where you came from and how you want to be treated.

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

    Pros

    There is an okay 401K match, Health benefits are average, there is also a small profit share contribution based upon your years of service. The people you work with day to day are great!

    Cons

    Any type of change takes FOREVER! Communication from executive management regarding the direction or end goal of the company is hard to get. They do not appreciate the work of their employees even after they have spent a long time with the organization. Commission employees work on a draw, so if you have a slow month you can owe the company back money the following month, and the compensation plan can change at any moment. I have seen 3 compensation updates since I started working there 2 years ago. It is tough as a commission based employee to not know how the company is going to decrease your comp plan every time you turn around.

    Advice to Management

    The company should communicate with the field so that people do not flee the organization at the rates that are happening. At least give them the information on the long range plan so that they can make an educated decision as to whether to stay or leave.

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers, great leadership, great customer focus with a strong belief in understanding what really matters.

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales goals versus risk appetite. Lack luster benefit package and antiquated operating systems

    Advice to Management

    Make the goals achievable, provide low deductible or copay only health insurance, stop taking away “perks” from employees without offering something in return.

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

    Pros

    I don’t know why I joined this bank...

    Cons

    I was hired and worked as a part time employee. I enjoy working part time but hate the terrible scheduling- work on Saturdays and holiday break. I did not receive any respects from those full time coworker - they would say something not too nice to me when I leave home earlier. If you like my hours then work part time! Stop teasing people!

    Advice to Management

    I have nothing to say. I am looking for another opportunity pretty soon!

    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Remote work and like the people.

    Cons

    $10K max out of pocket medical policy really sucks with high deductible. 2% increases and increases aren't based on performance. Constantly feel like being taken advantage of. What upper management says direction for staff is and what they do are different. Business outlook is good, but feel at the cost of the employees. If you join, get all you can get out of them to start. 401K is decent, but they only contribute half of what other companies I have worked for do.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees and make them feel like they belong there. Increases should not be below inflation.
