    Pros

    Surrounded by talented and well educated professionals. Strong access to LOBs. Access to senior management of fortune 500 companies. Nice mix of analysis, strategy, and client facing. Ability to take initiative and fill in gaps that exist within your respective role.

    Cons

    Senior management is stale. Old school and very hierarchical. Definite silos. Client first in words but not in action. Hard to move up. Lack of cultural identity.

    Advice to Management

    The world is much bigger than the top 50 clients. Executive management needs to be more involved with clients. Adapt to changing landscape - cost reduction can only get you so far.

    Pros

    People tend to stay at BNY Mellon for a long time which creates business expertise and deep comraderie amongst employees.

    Cons

    They are very very risk averse and it takes the successes of their competitors to encourage them to try new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Try leading the market instead of being a perpetual follower.
