While BNYM is a good place to work, there needs to be a strategy to retain young talent and really teach them to grow.

I worked at BNY Mellon

Pros

Good hours, more laid-bank atmosphere for a bank, good location. There aren't too many young people working there so if you do a good job you can really get noticed. If you are a high performer you can rotate to other areas of the business but i'm not sure how easy it is to do that.

Cons

Not much room for growth, people do not share their knowledge and really train and grow people. Management is ultra conservative so while the atmosphere is laid-back, it feels like personality is compromised at the same time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

That sharing knowledge and training/growing your people is essential

    Pros

    It is a good working experience if you enjoy working with foreign trade etc. There are a lot of departments and everyone should have a chance to work within or be familiar with them. It doesn't give employees a realistic perspective of what it is like to work in foreign trades and other things bank of new york is known for. They have so many worldwide locations so the chances of one ending up in a different city are rare to none, it is disappointing, they should have more cross training amongst departments and ability to go to another office if one desires

    Cons

    Too little chance of moving up the ladder and getting promoted fast. The training given is the absolute worse method. You have to sit deskside to someone who has been here for six months or more, its kind of annoying if that person is in a senior position because they have that ego booster already and they have been here for too long so its hard to get adjusted to that. Vacation time is only 2 weeks no matter what tenant position you hold, three weeks after 12 months should be given as most companies do anyways. MORE VACATION TIME!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees an opportunity of advancement after 12 months of service

    I think Bob has had a tough situation this year, and he has handled it very well.

    Pros

    They are not very strict on anything except compliance. A little bit of work goes a long way. It seems very hard for them to fire people.

    Cons

    The quality of people you work with is very low. Many people seems unmotivated and uneducated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the young blood you have int he organization by providing them opportunities to grow quickly. Perhaps have management fast tracks.
