Very good at first, but as they grew they lost that employee friendlyness.

    The company is a good company as long as you have the right management which I didn't.

    I worked at First Niagara Financial

    Pros

    They allow you to balance your work with your daily live, have a great benefit package, provide overtime at the time of merger which means extra money in our pockets.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work load is too little for everyone to go thru the day, however when someone quits or gets fired they take a long time to get replaces and one time from 7 in a department we went down to 3 & the work load increased excessively as you may immagine, however they did nothing to hire someone to help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is important to treat everyone equally, even when you have differences with one or two employees, because it is greatly noticeable.

    I have been working at First Niagara Financial

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Lunch is often provided at no cost. Recently acquired HSBC branches throughout north east. Cool logo.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up or even laterally. Some lazy people have found their way to the top. May be expanding to quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to some of the youner employees during expansion. Some of the old guard still can't scan and e-mail a document in less than 5 minutes.
