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

Pros

Senior level responsibility, actively interacted with managers in other areas, had enough freedom to solve problems quickly and efficiently.

Cons

Managers are lifers, often there's nowhere to be promoted to unless you move to another unit. Long time employees are extremely integrated into the "old ways" of doing things - any upgrade on a system or move to a more efficient method was seen as a threat to their knowledge and seniority. 80% of the "best practices" have been in place for 10+ years.

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

    Pros

    Great people, great company, great services. The bank was organized, well-respected within the industry, and obviously did very well revenue wise. Roles and responsibilities were identified, communicated, and executed.

    Cons

    VERY big bank; You might get lost in the shuffle. Although it was key to utilize every team member in the group in order to prevent this.

    Advice to Management

    Quality face time is key

    The Bank of New York acquired Mellon, not the other way around. However this is not how it seemed for some reason.

    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Bank of New York had a great culture and many of them were intelligent, trustworthy, and hardworking people

    Cons

    It appeared that Mellon had a mission to decimate the former Bank of New York employees when the former CEO, HR, and other very important areas of the company were put into Mellon hands. The treatment of women was much better at The Bank of New York. Mellon had a sexist and threatening environment for them. The whole thing was vicious and watching it kind of made your jaw drop open that things like that could happen these days.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the ship. Protect the women and make sure the Mellon culture has the appropriate boundaries with female employees - Man to woman and well as Woman to woman - something I had not really witnessed seen before in the corporate world.
