    BNY Mellon Corporate Trust Dept. I really liked my job but it did get stressful at times

    Senior Trust Administrator (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsGood people to work with; people got along well with each other...

    ConsWorkload can be heavy & stressful at times; expected to do two people's workload; not everyone pulls their own weight; management may not communicate fully about things.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more fully when changing things especially when it affects people's jobs

    It's all about timing with this company, being a team player, showing enthusiasm, and some luck

    Senior Associate (Current Employee) Everett, MA

    ProsRelaxed atmosphere, free parking, casual work environment, friendly people, easy access to highways.

    ConsGrowth is tough, salary increases are meager. Stock price is slowly going up after being embarrassingly low for years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompany direction is rarely discussed. I seldom hear the direction many departments are going in and see more empty cubicles each month.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide greater compensation so good employees can be motivated to stay in the company.

    BNY Mellon 2013 versus 2005 - Changes would help hiring and working there

    Vice President/Consultant (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsExcellent at creating a team environment (unless you are in a temporary role, then somewhat exclusionary, and no mentor if you are a temp); fair and good in lateral moves, and likes to promote within, but also open to qualified external hires to promote their business goals.

    ConsNeed to have better group / management organizational skills; internal communication can be improved to improve the performance of client facing roles

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore team orientation towards groups is necessary; inclusionary policy towards temporary/contract employees is good for the overall bottomline, and long-term retention, return employees, and achieving overall revenue at lower-cost is beneficial from an organizational perspective

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
