    Current Employee - Client Accounting and Reporting Supervisor  in  Everett, MA
    Current Employee - Client Accounting and Reporting Supervisor in Everett, MA

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

    Pros

    The corporate culture is good at BNYMellon. Also, the extensive training is unique and detailed. Upper management is very smart and well versed. Also, the outside work corporate events were usually a good time.

    Cons

    It is very hard to move up the ladder at Mellon. Once you get to a certain level, you can idle there for years. Also, the lack of recognition gets frustrating. They reward the people who work on easy clients and take for granted the employees that are really blowing away the client. Also, the training comes pretty late in the process. Finally, the quality of entry level staff is usually very poor as their starting salaries are not competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to work on a work/life balance plan. Also, need to come up with a better promotional system, and pay more in order to bring in better quality employees.

    Pros

    Nice People to work with, most of the benefits are very good. This company is trying to get as much of itself as possible over to India.

    Cons

    Constant Outsourcing, Health Insurance Benefit has become poor, all other benefits are are actually quite good. I find it uncomfortible to work in a place that is constantly laying people off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benefits and compensation are fine. Extremely unstable environment to work in. Just seems like everyone is waiting to get laid off.

    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good compensation, great co-workers, excellent benefits. Opportunities for advancement. Friendly atmosphere. A feeling like we're all on the same team. Supervisors were encouraging and supportive.

    Cons

    Not as good a work-life balance as I would have thought; more weekend work/special projects than I anticipated. Difficult bureaucracy to navigate. Sometimes the directions of upper management were less than clear. Bonuses when available were on the low side. Things went downhill after the merger with Mellon Bank.
