Interesting place as opportunities to learn and gain experience exist but advancement is limited.

Pros

Very good benefits and good work life balance. The corporate culture and coworkers make it easy to come into the office everyday.

Cons

Promotions are for title only with little or no increase in pay. The company is run too lean and puts a tremendous amount of pressure on the staff. No career advancement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The firm's ability to manage more accounts and funds is limited with the current systems and the lack of continuity across portfolio management systems will only make worse.

    Pros

    Other employers will respect the name on your resume. Better than most asset managers.

    Cons

    Only the most senior get promoted. They are really cheap. BNY Mellon corporate is really running the show. Overly obsessed with academic and professional credentials, especially in cases where relevance to job is debatable. Not a true meritocracy because most managers are too chicken to show leadership to senior management. Senior management is very aloof and hardly make their presence felt. Never knew most of them, never saw them. What do they do exactly?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the mid level people doing the heavy lifting. If you can't afford a raise, give a title promotion. There are smart people, good workers, with lots of talent, try harder to identify these people or that "giant sucking sound" you hear is the exodus of talent to better firms.
