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

    Pros

    Decent benefits, a lot of volunteering opportunities.

    Cons

    Extremely outdated technology; very conservative mindset, prigresdive ideas are mostly never welcome. In many areas only favorites move up, otherwise you find yourself in stagnation. Also, almost impossible to get permission to work from home- very little trust from many managers

    Advice to Management

    Please pay attention to the progress around you & listen to employees. And please update technology, like all other banks!

    I worked at M&T Bank full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers were super friendly and helpful! Most staff and trainers were available when needed.

    Cons

    M&T did not implement a plan for its employees for growth within the company. Pay rate it lower than most competitors for the request work load. Also, it's very hard to request a pay increase. Only once you've provided your resignation letter upper management can negotiate pay ( to keep you). Upper managment does not take seriously your concerns or suggestions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees! Especially your tenured employees. They have a wealth of suggestions that can help the department.

    Pros

    Great culture. Not too bad of a work life balance. Very friendly environment including management

    Pay could be a whole lot better. A little behind in times with sales process. Could improve on acknowledging the good folks with bonuses instead of a simple "High Five" email.
