    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work schedule is laid back and flexible. There are opportunities to relocate around the globe. They offer tuition reimbursement and paid volunteer time.

    Cons

    Had to pay for parking at the downtown Syracuse location. Syracuse jobs are for the most part entry level, not much chance for progressing advancement due to the types of jobs in this location.

    Advice to Management

    Give more opportunities for promotions and show your workers that you care.

    Pros

    Great people and work atmosphere. Good employee retention within the technology departments. Flexible work schedules and strong benefits make this an enjoyable place to work each day.

    Cons

    Banks move slow to change. In a world where technology changes every day, banks are more risk averse, and within the technology space, employees don't learn or use some of the newer software being introduced in other industries.

    Advice to Management

    Partner with consulting firms and vendors with lower turnover rates. Much time was spent by our teams to train new consultants in domain knowledge, who then left and went to better paying firms.
