    Easygoing Environment, Friendly People

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros7 Hour Work days, on the IT side uses a very structured methodology standard and process moves accordingly. Projects require a considerable amount of wind up time and departments are generally small and operate in close knit groups.

    ConsPersonal experiences are largely dependent on work culture that's defined by your immediate supervisor. Your experiences may vary based on the organization and department you work with.

    I am optimistic

    Debt Service Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsWork/ life balance and potential for growth because of "pending situations in certain departments"

    ConsOffice culture and they hire way too many people who are undereducated. It should be required that people have at least a bachelors degree in some roles. Who cares if you've been there 20 years? Most people who are undereducated who have been here forever are not contributing and are over paid.

    Started my Career

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) Nashville, TN

    ProsTons of opportunities all over the world. Exposure to big business strategies, cutting edge technology, education assistance, good benefits, and international experience.

    BNY Mellon was my school so to speak. I broke into the management game here, learned tons, was given opportunities to challenge mindsets, and introduce new ideas.

    I was lucky enough to find a company that brought me on board with almost virtually no experience. I worked hard, smart, and networked smart. I was able to excel and grow as a professional.

    ConsThe dollar rules all. There isn't as much investment in staff as I think is appropriate, and the executive management teams are very much old school New York. During my tenure, I saw years where raises and bonuses were frozen. In some of the firm's low cost markets, pay was exceptionally low, it was very difficult for me to hire High Caliber employees at the pay ranges we offered.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRe-Think how much you want to invest in your work force in low cost markets. It was the driving factor in why I left, and I know others have left for similar reasons. Re-Evaluate the return on investments when it comes to your employees. Happy employees will always outperform their unhappy peers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
