    I have been working at BNY Mellon full-time (more than a year)

    The work environment is relaxed. No two days are ever the same. Lots of learning opportunities available to expand one's understanding of the financial industry. Work in interesting and most days go by very quickly.

    Cons

    Management takes a very long time to make personnel decisions. Volume of work can be intense at times and employee needs to know how to juggle. No clear cut promotion process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time listening to staff to better understand their needs and concerns. Open up more opportunities for promotion.
