    Pros

    Dedicated, engaged employer that is invested in the professional development of their employees. Employees were always willing to spend time with interns to share their own journey and offer advice. There is also excellent exposure to senior leaders and executives. Good work-life balance / integration. It is an inclusive work environment where innovation and diverse perspectives are not only welcomed, but encouraged.

    Cons

    While pay may sometimes be less than industry average, the benefits, the flexibility, the company culture and the opportunities for development outweigh this one potential disadvantage.

    I have been working at BNY Mellon full-time

    Pros

    They have a great work environment with young and energetic employees. It is very suitable for starters that have just graduated from Uni.

    Cons

    Compensation is a little bit lower than average but you can study a lot while working for this company. Nothing else to say.

    Advice to Management

    would have to say that working for BNY Mellon will be a good opportunity for anyone that wants to study more

    I worked at BNY Mellon as an intern

    Pros

    Great internship program with weekly events and speakers, great company culture and post-grad opportunities.

    Cons

    They hire a lot of interns so you might get lost in the shuffle if you dont make an effort to be active and network

    Advice to Management

    Hire more young people and be more open to change and honesty

    I have been working at BNY Mellon full-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at BNY Mellon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    BNY Mellon is a great company to work for and I am fortunate to get a job at a fortune 200 company. I ended up getting a job at Pittsburgh and the department I worked for was an absolute nightmare. I would not recommend anyone to work for this department. VP was a fantastic person, but he got a diiferent position and left Pittsburgh IVC.

    Cons

    Pittsburgh IVC has very negativity flowing around. Two supervisors on the floor and they will make sure to let you down all the time but amazing team basically learned 99% of the work from my teammates. The supervisors won’t help you at all. No rules in this department and everything is controlled and manipulated. No lunches and every time if we happen to get one then it will be always different times at all times. These supervisors will always yell at you for no reason, because they don’t know what they are doing and will take the frustration on you. Another, thing there is this man he is the rudest person you can ever have in the team. Every time, he seems to be frustrated and takes his anger on his team. Beware of him and confront to him, he is a very mean person and he can let you down. All I will say if you are desperate in need for a job with a great company then get this job and keep looking within the company. I was a contractor and I looked around and got a full time offer, these people cannot appreciate anyone’s hard work. Too much gossiping and yelling in this place, it is definitely a stepping stone to your foot at the door and once you are in then start looking. Just do not work for Pittsburgh IVC unless you have to. Lack of management skills, leadership skills, lack of team player, lack of motivation, no rules.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate people on the team, try to be a good team player.
