Not what it was made out to be
Relationship Banker II (Current Employee) –  Dover, DEApril 19, 2018
I was hired for a job description with certain hours. Ended up being a whole different type of position. Working more hours and more days than what I was told. Turn around rare is high. Management shows favouritism.
Cons
Healthcare coverage, income, hours, management

Excellent work in Buffalo
Business & Planning Manager II (Current Employee) –  Lancaster, PAApril 17, 2018
If you are willing to live in Buffalo, the sky is the limit with M&T Bank. There are endless opportunities, fantastic benefits and flexible accommodations.
M&T offers a lot for being a Fortune 500 company. They care a lot about their employees and seek constant feedback.
They strive to do right by all and are highly communicative of all of their efforts to make life at M&T better.
Pros
A lot of opportunity
Cons
must live in Buffalo to reap all benefits of being employed at M&T

"You don't pay me enough to work here"
Relationship Banker (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYApril 16, 2018
The amount of money you make, some of the employees, doesn't offset the stress you endure in retail banking. Poor reviews from back office employees as well

Very stressful
Relationship Banker I (Current Employee) –  Lewes and Rehoboth Hundred, DEApril 8, 2018
A lot of training (webinars) and very little hands on training. They expect a lot for a very low salary as compared to other companies. Most managers are very supportive but as with any company there are a few who are not. I have found this more in the branch.
Pros
hours
Cons
demands

Branch Manager/Banking Officer (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYApril 6, 2018
Company is very invested in professional development if you would like to further your career. Employees are prideful in what they do, strong culture of community.

Great company
Banking Officer, Supervisor III (Current Employee) –  Amherst, NYApril 5, 2018
M&T is a great company that provides the opportunity for anyone to start an entry level position and have the opportunity to grow. The benefits and salary can be better especially for those with additional skill sets. I would continue to grow my career with M&T Bank but at this point I am in the process of looking to move out of state.

Mid-Stage Credit Counselor II (Current Employee) –  Millsboro, DEApril 5, 2018
It's a good place to work. Everyone gets along and do their work. The hardest part about this job would be for someone who doesn't have prior banking knowledge. There is training classes that will help you learn what you need to for the job.

Hostile Work Environment
Relationship Banker I (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDApril 3, 2018
Great Co-workers but very Poor Management
They want you to do their jobs with little to no pay increase. Also, if u work in a more urban area, they’ll leave you high and dry.
Pros
Decent Pay
Cons
Mentally and physically Stressful

An OK place to get career started
Legal Liaison (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 3, 2018
This is a perfect place to gain experience in the banking industry. They offer plenty of workshops and trainings to help further your career. Downside to company is lack of competitive pay. They give small raises each year. They are also known for letting people go and bring them back with higher compensation instead of keeping their employees around at that higher rate. If you ask for the raise you want they won't give it to you unless you leave the company they want to bring you back

Great co-workers but, life/work balance could use some work
Licensed Relationship Banker II (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MD 21201April 2, 2018
We work very odd hours. Pay isn't that great, even with incentive. Management is GREAT and want you to succeed in the workplace. Very hard to move up unless you are in the MDP program.

Walking on egg shells
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Amherst, NYMarch 28, 2018
I would admit that the work environment was great. Colleagues made it worth while. My only huge concern would be not knowing what your manager is thinking. If you aren't in constant communication, you might find yourself in troubled waters. Just watch it!!!
Pros
Yay payday and friends
Cons
Management and lack of proof

Consumer Lending Associate II (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYMarch 28, 2018
Everybody did their job very well and worked as a team-you could always count on any co-worker to assist you if you were in a crunch or needed help-the benefits were the very best also and the bank promoted those people who really worked hard to exceed the banks' goals.
Pros
good benefits, lots of hard-working friendly good people there
Cons
very strict, no talking, laughing w/ co-workers-not very flexible

Vice President, Credit Risk Manager (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYMarch 27, 2018
senior managers lose touch with people on ground floor; technology is antiquated, making daily job cumbersome; history of terminating LT employees for new younger employees with less experience, with less pay
Pros
great benefits
Cons
low salaries, negligible increases

Long Way to Go to Being a Fair Employer
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYMarch 26, 2018
Hiring practices may follow legal practices, however, most management is unethical in hiring individuals they want without letting their teams know about positions.

Outsiders are hired based on lowest salary rather than merit. HR staff is incompetent.

Performance develpment plans, if existant, are superficial.

Only senior executives are given opportunities to grow in areas where they have no or little experience inc.

Not impressed
Bank Teller (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NY 14203March 26, 2018
The company doesn't pay much and also doesn't allow for much movement up. They were dishonest about hours and very disorganized. My co-workers were great though.

Working for M&T Bank
Teller Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Reisterstown, MDMarch 22, 2018
Working for M&T Bank was a very fun experience. Living in Baltimore and being a Raven's fan, this was the place to work. Everyone within the company is very friendly and they take their time to train new employees.

Credit Analyst
Credit Analyst (Current Employee) –  Northeast USMarch 21, 2018
Loan Analysis is a great department to work in. The credit training is exemplary and the managers are renowned for their dedication to their employees. It is a truly collaborative atmosphere and the compensation is fair provided that you negotiate aggressively to start as raises are minuscule. If you want a great work/life balance and engaging work assignments then Loan Analysis is a great place to be. If you want to move up and eventually work sales and be compensated at nearly double the rate of an analyst then you're out of luck because...

Loan Analysis is the kiss of death for career advancement (heard this from several people in the development program). The bank only promotes from either their development program or outside hires. Once you are credit trained it becomes a waste of money to put you through the development program but they don't hire analysts as RMs (this is a direct quote from a regional president) so... move on or get comfortable.
Pros
401k, Pto, credit training, credit dept management
Cons
lack of career advancement, benefits are terrible
