Supporting Our Military

Our military and veteran employees have demonstrated their responsibility and valuable contributions to the M&T team. We are proud to support our Reserve and National Guard employees and show that commitment through our annual renewal of the national Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve's Statement of Support Program by offering those with an obligation to serve additional time off.

“As a former Marine, the value of quality leadership and discipline were instilled in me from day one. Since joining M&T, I’ve found myself  surrounded by exceptional leadership and highly disciplined peers. This is the culture I enjoyed from the military and now thrive in as a corporate leader. We are an organization where Veterans belong!”
