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

    Pros

    Collaborative work environment, supportive management, smart and committed co-workers, flexible work arrangements, decent work life balance...

    When you join a new firm, you hope the opportunity will be as good as the recruiter told you it would be. My experience at BNY Mellon has been better.

    Cons

    Long commute, 2 weeks of vacation

    Pros

    Lots of vacation days, a decent 401k match

    Cons

    Lots of unintended overtime, always getting handed work beyond your scope of ability, if you can do it they add more. Essentially a glorified assistant.

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

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Diverse at the bottom, but not at the top. Not a meritocracy, they prefer to bring in people from the outside to fill roles their current employees can fill. Tremendous cost cutting affecting how clients are serviced. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Learn about the products your team is selling and servicing . It's embarrassing when senior management goes into a meeting without knowing the intricacies of their own business. Stop promoting people based on what they look like or who their mommy or daddy was.

    Pros

    yearly incentive pay is deplorable.

    Cons

    they don't pay what is due to you. yearly incentive payments will not encourage you to do anything more than you have to. Don't go the extra mile. You will not get recognized.
