    Pros

    Challenging work (occasionally). Decent hours.

    Cons

    The constant theat of layoffs are always present. Doesn't matter how good you are or how long you've been there. If they can dump you, they will.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending that you care about the employees. Put your money where you mouth is. Reward us for our hard work.

    Pros

    Offices all over the world; very big company and a leader in the financial industry.

    Cons

    They are too obsessed with cost cutting. They fail to understand that if you invest enough in people, technology, and infrastructure, that investment will result in greater profitability. Instead, they prefer to lay people off, provide insufficient funding to get things done, and expect client officers to figure out how to spin this to the clients without revealing the truth that BNY is cheap. Raises are minimal every year. My raises have been about 1% / $1,000 a year since my company became part of BNY Mellon. Thankfully I got really good raises before we were acquired, so now I'm at an affordable income level.

    Advice to Management

    If BNY really is a world leader for investments, please act like it, and invest in the company the way it's truly needed.

    Pros

    People and the environment. A lot of places to pick up new skills and they offer education reimbursement. There are also a number of ways to learn while on the job.

    Cons

    Not much in the way of advancement. You may have to change departments to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Hire younger people who are more involved

    Pros

    Commities to host events for your department/floor. Can keep moving up job grades after a year in your current job. So many jobs you can apply for. Every person I have met through interviews to move up in this company, and every person on my team and in my department have been amazing and friendly. Can see where the recession is getting better from when I worked her 6 years ago.

    Cons

    Seems like there could be some manipulation you may be to naive to notice. I am sure there are still departments where no one talks to each other.

    Advice to Management

    Be impressed with process improvement, and not annoyed.
