    I have been working at BNY Mellon full-time (More than a year)

    BNY is an amazing company to work for. There are many opportunities to grow and really build a solid career.

    Staffing seems to always be an issue.

    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time

    I have been working at BNY Mellon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very stable hours. At 5 o'clock people are leaving the door like it's a fire alarm.

    Cons

    Everything moves pretty slowly. Most stress comes from feeling like you should be doing more.


  4. "Depends on the area of the company"

    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Work/life balance. I only worked overtime a few times in 5 years.
    - Once you're in, there are a lot of different types of jobs to move around in.

    Cons

    - Resistance to change. Like in any big company, I felt like my ideas had very little chance of being implemented.
    - Complacent employees. Again, a big company side effect. Managers didn't expect very much, and even my very smart coworkers didn't find much motivation to do their best.
    - Review process. Several employees were there completely on seniority; they were inefficient and limited, if not a liability.

    Advice to Management

    Identify your top talent and work to keep them.

    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you have a love of learning you will enjoy BNY Mellon. A once sleepy giant has morphed into a forward thinking, dynamic firm. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    The most frustrating thing is rolling out something new and then abandoning it two years later. Once a decision is made - go all in.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the path. Improve employee engagement for older, more experienced employees.
