    I worked at M&T Bank full-time

    Pros

    Easy to get ahead, not overly political, great coworkers

    Cons

    Limited upside, work doesn't always make a difference, mission isn't always clearly articulated, feelings that sometimes your boss was the last person standing and not necessarily best for the job

    Advice to Management

    Target high performers early and break the mold in terms of salary/bonus potential.

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

    Pros

    They promote from within and do so based on merit, not an old boys system or because someone has more time.

    Their benefits are great. 401k matching up to 4.5% for a 6% individual contribution. The Employee Stock Purchase Plan allows you to purchase their steady, reliable stock at a 10% discount. They also have a retirement account and make contributions once a year after your first year with the company. The contribution is a percentage of your salary and you get to control which accounts the money goes into. I currently make 50k a year and if I never get a raise and it doesn't accrue a dollar in interest, roughly 75k will be in it when I retire. Simple math on raises and normal return rates in the market show that account will have much more than 75k waiting on me when I retire.

    The health plan through Independent Health is great. It covers regular checkups and they set you up with an easy to use HSA, as well as contribute up to $1,000 at the beginning of the year. The contribution depends on how much you make as an individual.

    Cons

    Lots of meetings. The joke around there is M&T stands for "meet and talk." Honestly though, if that's the worst thing I can say about them, then they're pretty great to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Have an employee picnic once a year so families can get to know one another.

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

    Pros

    Good hours, good pay. I get decent breaks. Everyone I work with is super nice. Management is great. There is opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    The work is slightly repetitive. The cash out cap needs to be higher for new tellers so they don't have to hold up the line to get an override every five minutes on a busy day.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any, I've only been working for two months and they've handled everything pretty alright since I've been there.
