Micromanaged at every turn
Relationship Banker I (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – November 2, 2018
I work at M&T bank currently as a relationship banker I. I am micromanaged at every single opportunity and when I make a small mistake I am brought to the office wherein I am condescended and berated and threatened. I know of other people that work for the bank at different branches and LOVE it, so maybe I just got shafted with a bad branch. My manager has a wildly inappropriate relationship with one of his employees and many people think so. Employees who aren’t technically management will get you in trouble by telling on you. Since I started working here I’ve been approached several times to be reprimanded for my feelings towards the bank which shows me that they really don’t care if it’s “the best place their employees ever work,” they only care about whether or not you’re spreading rumors about the bank. They’ve expressed to me outright that the bank “hates corporate climbers,” meaning they’d rather stick you in one position for life than bother to help you with career advancement. I wouldn’t recommend M&T to anyone who isn’t a brown-noser.
Co-workers are helpful and friendly.
Managers are very fake.
