    I have been working at BNY Mellon full-time (More than 8 years)


    BNY is a company you have to earn trust to make a truly enjoyable place to work. I have been with the company for 8 years and this last year has been the first time I've ever truly been happy. The other 7; I was stuck in the grind thinking that was all I was worth. The job market was so hard and I was finishing my masters that I just got into the rhythm of dealing with a chaotic and unhealthy work place.

    My job now is much better as I was hired because of what I was bringing to the table. My manager and their manager both wanted to see what impact I could have to a large scale project; I was hired to do a single job within this project but allowed to work with implementing changes to make the project flow more efficiently. I finally feel good about my job but its because I was finally hired to do something more than fill a chair.


    Long story short: getting justified merit increases/bonuses/promotions/raises is not possible within realistic time frames for true out-performers.

    Far too often you become a paper pusher just doing your job to get through each day. You post out to new jobs to get a 10% raise on a yearly basis; the company has trouble keeping it's best employees because the promotions and raises are impossible for managers to get for their employees even when they deserve it.

    I say the latter statement as its a reality that most managers will admit to. The people who decide who gets promoted don't actually manage you; it all comes down to how much your manager is willing to go to bat for you and in all honestly, that sometimes doesn't matter.
