    Pros

    Very interactive internship program. Informative presentations for all interns every week so they can learn more about the company. Freedom to explore multiple areas to find true interests.

    Cons

    Not all interns will have experience with managers as some are not as proactive as others.

    I worked at BNY Mellon

    Pros

    Finding a light-hearted and enlightening summer banking internship in New York City is quite difficult, but BNY Mellon is one of the few large banks to accomplish this uncommon mission. You work alongside intelligent professionals who give a helping hand as long as you ask nicely. Most of the employees understand that there should be a work-life balance in order to be a successful individual. Almost all of the interns have access to the senior staff members in their department that are always willing to answer any question. All interns have a final project at the end of the program that aggregates all of the aspects of their respective department. The project is judged based on creativity and understanding of the department's functions. Very enlightening! Additionally, you have field trips to Bloomberg, Lazard, and the BNY Mellon Museum.

    Cons

    There are no perks for this company and receiving over-time payment is quite hard. Depending on the department and team to which you are assigned, work varies throughout the summer.

    Pros

    Office culture was different from other investment banks I've worked at (BNY Mellon isn't technically an investment bank. My direct management were helpful and very knowledgable.

    Cons

    Cost cutting measures were felt by all. Some managers didn't keep tolls of some employees underneath them. Not able to transfer easily to another department. Compensation is a little low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation needs to be improved. Employees understand there are bigger and better opportunities at other banks in NYC.
