Current Employee - Trade Specialist in Pittsburgh, PA
Current Employee - Trade Specialist in Pittsburgh, PA

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

Pros

Good job right out of college. Once you learn the work, it's easy. Very consistent. Stable job

Cons

No room to move up as a trade specialist. Merit increase was very low. Not consistant between employees, and not based on amount of work you put in. Lack of appreciation for hard work. No motivation to continue working for the company.

Advice to Management

Notice those who work extremely hard each day, and notice those who don't. Many hard working, knowledgable people go unnoticed. Offer more incentives or promotions for those who deserve it or they will leave for a new job..

    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, plenty of bathroom with a lot of sinks for some reason, decent cafe.

    Cons

    You work your butt off all day, and the people that get your managers dunkin donuts will get promoted. Also if you smoke with the managers its beneficial too! You can also come in off the street and make more than people working there for years.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your hard working employees with better pay

    I have been working at BNY Mellon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fairly good job security, especially if you live in India or Pittsburgh Good work/life balance for most departments No/few opportunities to advance results in less pressure

    Cons

    The company takes being cheap to all levels (no room in the budget for a blackberry) Do more with less has become dogmatic It attempts to be an investment firm without investing in resources then wonders why it is not a good investment firm Conflicts of interest are significant, resulting in pushing bad product on clients Inability to consistently live up to our fiduciary duty to clients is bad on morale

    Advice to Management

    Divest the company of the investment portions of the firm. You are doing a poor job at it and will eventually be sued/prosecuted for not living up to our fiduciary duty Stick to what you know best, trusts, taxes and custody Stop sending employees emails for donations into Super PACs. It further illustrates the chasm between what is important to you and us.
