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

    Pros

    So much support from colleagues and senior managers. MDP training builds good professional skills and helps the adjustment from college to workforce. Great culture! The bank is really supportive of moving positions and encourages employees to challenge themselves in a new role.

    Cons

    Almost all upward progression is in Buffalo which can be limiting.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time

    Pros

    Long term stability, Good Benefits
    Strongest bank in Western New York

    Cons

    Compensation was lackluster. Typically a decent starting salary, but 2% each year beyond if you're lucky. Bonus was hit and miss, and zero my last year, despite exceeding performance metrics.

    Advice to Management

    Desk plaques celebrating milestones are nice but they don't pay the mortgage. Reward good employees and maintain a positive productive workforce with appropriate raises and bonuses.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many of the people are very nice. The environment is not cut-throat, and the projects are engaging. There is plenty of opportunity to develop strategies and be heard.

    Cons

    If you find yourself with a poor manager, you will not have a great time. It is a culture that values people, and it may be a result of that that even poor managers are able to stick around.

    Advice to Management

    As a people focused company, it may be even more important to make the effort to seek out and weed out poor managers. They have a very detrimental impact on the company and on the employees (even those that leave as a result).
