    I worked at BNY Mellon

    Pros

    Good benefits, room for growth, decent pay and good people

    Cons

    After becoming BNY Mellon it went down hill,, way too much PC with all of its discriminating Diversity BS. They hired and promoted way too many people based on their sex or color of skin than on merit. This has caused lost of resentment among many employees. Work is supposed to be about the job not indoctrination gay life styles etc.

    Very petty place concerning cell phones, or using the phone, email etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to being fair by hiring and promoting on merit with No discrimination of anyone. That works for all. Its about the work, nothing else.

    I worked at BNY Mellon

    Pros

    Built solid relationships with platinum level client

    Cons

    Was sold as a "growth center" not one new client added. Low pay, far too many incompetent senior level employees. BNY Mellon is a great company although custody operations is not the ideal section of the company to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to sit in your office and measure rubber bands with a ruler, might be a good idea to close your door so your employees can't see you.
