    I worked at M&T Bank full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Cannot think of a single good thing about working here other than that their hours are decent.

    Cons

    Management is horrid. They do not care about employees, extremely unprofessional, and basic guidelines are constantly unclear. Not to mention, the work to pay ratio is not balanced at all. No ability to work up.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Larger company with employee benefits.

    Cons

    They hire younger and cheaper people. If you are over 40, if you are hired, it is at a low rate of pay and you have less opportunity for promotion. It is sad to have experienced age discrimination here.

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Retail bankers are paid hourly, so you only work 37.5 hours a week and you get paid overtime if you go over 40 hours. Three weeks paid vacation and 11 paid holidays. For a sales position, it's not a huge amount of stress. You still have to make your numbers but they aren't breathing down your neck.

    Cons

    Career progression is essentially impossible unless you are in business banking. In three years I only saw 3 people in the entire region get promoted. Most retail bankers were there 5+ years, same with most managers. Short staffing and branches being spread out makes learning new skills or shadowing someone in another department impossible.

    I have been working at M&T Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Sales goals are reasonable, company does not aggressively push unwanted products on customers, conservative underwriting contributes to stability in down markets, management does genuinely seem to care about employees.

    Cons

    Pay is mediocre compared to rest of industry, new incentive structure has caused substantial income reduction for long tenured employees. Systems are very outdated, information and tasks are spread out over multiple different platforms that don't communicate well with each other. A lot of customer service tasks in the branch require outsourcing requests to back office, and staff in non-customer facing roles can be very slow or indifferent in responding. Simple tasks take multiple phone calls with transfers to multiple departments to find the one person who can help, and internal support line is always understaffed. A lot is still done on paper, processes are very slow - especially business underwriting. Be prepared to lose customers because M&T takes 5-10 days to approve a loan that competitors will turn around in 24 hours with a fraction of the paperwork. Work life balance is terrible. You will work 6 days a week most weeks (until 6pm on Fridays), federal holidays are only 2 day weekends instead of 3, you have a lot of vacation time, but only one person per branch can be off per day, so PTO is actually really hard to use in reality. As a manager, you will be expected to go to lots of after hours networking and charity functions evenings and weekends, and that is in addition to your normal time, which can easily be 48 hours a week on its own.

    I worked at M&T Bank

    Pros

    Monday holidays, PTO, Hours, some employees

    Cons

    Only can work 37.5 hours! Low paying job got a nickel raise in 2 years. Bored to death at this job. Many old antiquated systems to learn. Want you to do more with less people. Micro managed . Back stabbing employees. So short staffed customers have to wait and then end up leaving. Many employees leaving even tenured ones. If you go to HR with something it takes them 2 months to get back to you.
