I have only good to say about M&T Bank. Our branch in Norwich, NY, has been very helpful to us. When they first changed their name from Partners Trust, I was concerned. My concerns were groundless. Thank you M&T Bank for making banking a pleasure!
I have 3 accounts for M & T Bank in Manhattan. The college checking account has high fee's designed to drive income for the bank but not do much more for the client. The bank has been taking more money from me than my college age child. Terrible phone service, wait forever, and then most requests for consideration are denied. My branch manager is always quick to call me to complain about overdrafts etc but never calls when there are multiple fees incurred to me. Its a one way street as far as this bank is concerned. Thanks goodness my child will graduate this year, can't wait to move my accounts. Unfortunately its not easy to find a reputable institution nowadays, all about generating cash flow, not looking out for the client.
ive made 2 attempts to open an account for my 8 mos old daughter and both times ive left the hunt valley branch without being waited on. There is a complete lack of urgency to help customers. i have multiple accounts at this branch and im contemplating taking my business elsewhere. If this branch continues on this path eventually it will be shut down because people like myself will not bank here!
