I have been working at BNY Mellon full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The best part of my job are the people I work with. My team members are extremely dedicated and talented in their job. I also get to work from home when needed, making the work life balance easier to handle.

Cons

Time and money are wasted on initiatives that are not fully vetted. Upper Senior management does not listen to the people on the ground, doing the actual work. In the IT world, this is painfully evident. Lately there seems to also be a culture shift in the IT world from one of collaboration with senior management towards intimidation/fear. Rule by the numbers is now the exclusive measure. A blend of metrics along with proven business insight should be the norm instead. Also, there is very little career advancement in the IT world.

Advice to Management

In the IT world, management should stop relying so heavily on intimidation and metrics. There should be a collaboration and direct responsibility between IT and the business in order to tie the two lines together.
