    Bny mellon has deep experience in Wealth Management that is second to none. The culture is a bit of a chanllenge in which it is not a warm inclusive environment. Senior management has more of a critical and demeaning style

    I have been working at BNY Mellon

    Pros

    The best part of working here is the depth of people as resources and experience. The caliber of talent is very high

    Cons

    Management style is more of a dictatorship that lacks true leadership and passion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to get professional executive coaches and Senior Managers who lead by example

    Pros

    Great people and very respectful place to work , enough work and overtime available.

    Cons

    You will get lost in the shuffle, very hard to advance . Keep your head down and do the work, do not speak up or put in the spotlight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more incentives for employees to stay and look forward to coming in on a daily basis. Too many chiefs and very little Indians.

    I have been working at BNY Mellon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company if you want to go someplace where you can grow and learn from really smart people. I don't know if the rest of the company is like this but Wealth Management is very successful and management has been fair about sharing rewards and promoting from within.

    Cons

    People don't recognize the name of the company. People recognize Mellon but not BNY Mellon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    $5000 of tuition reimbursement doesn't go very far these days.

    Pros

    Their wide range of products can provide exposure to a variety of industries. They have very flexible work options and fringe benefits that smaller companies don't.

    Cons

    The merger, even six years later, still shows signs of growing pains. Advancement is nearly stagnant and so are the salaries. Communication between the various departments is a struggle and they're constantly shuffling and consolidating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better compensation and employee recognition is needed in order to retain your most valuable resources.

    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.

    Pros

    First job out of college, happy to be employed. Supervisors were helpful and supportive. Patient with training a new grad. Good place to wet your feet with 9-5 work.
