    I worked at M&T Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for! Very stable, especially considering that the banking industry has been very rocky with mergers and take overs, and even scams. M&T has not only weathered that storm but has continuously grown. Couldn't ask for better people to work with.

    Cons

    They can be very stingy when it comes to salary and raises. You're best bet is to negotiate the salary you want upfront.

    Flexible environment with multiple opportunities within bank to move around to different positions. Pay and benefits are very competitive compatibly
