    Pros

    M&T provides great benefits and as a large company tries hard to treat their employees well.

    Cons

    As a large regional bank, they're technology is archaic and very inefficient. The bank is also so cost conscious they will make decisions the bank thinks are cost effective but in the end make your daily work life miserable which is especially frustrating when your income as a mortgage loan officer is commission based. If you are considering a mortage career at M&T do not expect good processing or any kind of administrative support. M&T's mortgage division is very "old school" for a mortgage company.

    Advice to Management

    Finally, you're beginning to recognize your technology needs to improve in order to compete in the 21st century mortgage industry. However, your New York state community lending archaic culture is a killing your reputation in the mid-atlantic region.

    Pros

    Management Development Program and Sales Development Program provides great training and traveling out of town. Get to make some amazing connections. Discount accommodations.

    Cons

    Very old systems and values. Ineffective on the job training for your specific role and goals. Management not always helpful with training you to make important decisions. Pay is lower than most other banks.

    Advice to Management

    Be on the same page as your bosses and know what your employees need to do in order for them to have a successful retail banking career. Show that you want the retention rate to lessen in percentage.
