Pros

Very stable work environment. They are an excellent company that will certainly be around a long time and only continue to grow. Good work recognition programs are pretty good. I loved working in downtown Buffalo. That probably sounds like a joke, but it was great during the summer to finish work on Thursdays and just walk over to LaFayette Sq (and more recently) to the harbor for the free concert series.

Cons

They're pretty cheap. They don't pay much and they definitely have some business structural issues to improve efficiency.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay people more. Offer more career self-improvement and your employees will be worth more to you in the long run

    Pros

    Good vacation time based on tenure, but 6 months in you get 2 weeks.

    Cons

    Where do i start....

    1)They're cheap- I started out making about $11. Now I make $13 Not for a job well done, but because we merged with another bank who paid better.(they had to even out the salaries across the footprint) This has happened twice since 'Ive been there. The last time a raise was given in our office was a laughable quarter of a percent; which turned out to be about penny. There is always a reason your not getting a raise! So sad

    2)Management- If you have a problem with your manager, you can call human resources. But they wont show, instead you have a meeting with your boss and a higher up who basically suggests that you either deal with it or find another job(Also happened twice)

    3)Only concerned with their bottom line. Not concerned enough with employee morale. It affects the environment and the quality of the work

    Bottom Line- You CAN do better!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care a little more about who you put in charge of your people. Unhappy employees make for an unhappy bottom line

    Pros

    Most of the people you work with are very nice people.
    Good if you want to learn the banking industry

    Cons

    Upper management is only concerned with making sure their region meets their goals and not the development of each branch and its employees.
    They refuse to hire from within
    Pay is below average

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop your current employees and they will be more likely to stick around. Stop hiring from the outside and hire within. With little opporunity for advancement nobody wants to stick around.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
