    It's all about timing with this company, being a team player, showing enthusiasm, and some luck

    Senior Associate (Current Employee) Everett, MA

    ProsRelaxed atmosphere, free parking, casual work environment, friendly people, easy access to highways.

    ConsGrowth is tough, salary increases are meager. Stock price is slowly going up after being embarrassingly low for years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompany direction is rarely discussed. I seldom hear the direction many departments are going in and see more empty cubicles each month.

    Good company to work as entry-level

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are lots of learning experience. They provide great training for employees. Managements are knowledgeable and are not afraid to help when it's busy. They have good benefits such as tuition reimbursement, 401K, and time-off

    ConsLack of advancement and low compensation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide greater compensation so good employees can be motivated to stay in the company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I have done OK at BNYM, but not a place I want to finish my career.

    Financial Services (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsSince the merger with Mellon Bank, there have been improvements to the organization. They are trying to provide the employees with a better working environment through the use of feedback, opinions, and training. Despite being in Pittsburg, the HR department is one noticeable area of improvement.

    ConsYou can work many extra hours of overtime when busy, and not be properly taken care of. In other words, dinners are not provided and bonuses are very minimal.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good experience, hard to advance and kept at low pay for too long

    Quality Control Analyst (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsYou build a great base of professional contacts. So many people start out here that you always have a good pool of references when job searching due to the turnover.
    Pension plan is frozen now but 401k with match still exists
    business casual dress code, jeans allowed on fridays
    Your work does not come home with you, overtime for non-exempt is available at times and worth it in my opinion
    Very good about sick days and emergencies

    ConsDifficult to move up or transfer out of department
    Low pay
    water cooler and coffee not free
    training lacked an formality or frame of reference

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more selective with who gets promoted, a lot of people become apathetic quickly

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
