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

    Pros

    you will learn a lot, company follows a strict methodology since there are quarterly internal audits and possible annual federal audits. Some groups encourage leadership development and have a great culture. Company allows you to switch positions between different organizations so you can try different things to see what you like.

    Cons

    Most of the leadership has been with the company their entire careers so they are still used to getting the work done themselves, so you will be micromanaged with everything you do. Pay is ok, but raises are minimal at best and you do not receive a bonus unless you are a certain level or higher. Project timelines and costs are usually out of control because requirements are vague and several change requests are needed for each project. Leadership is also easy to throw you under the bus to save face with their colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Less micromanagement and more encouraging professional growth and leadership development
