    Management needs to be streamlined and better coordinated so that employees have a clear sense of direction and what is expected of them.

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

    Pros

    The people I work with at all levels are great. Sadly I have nothing else positive to add.

    Cons

    Incessant drive to reduce headcount. Those left are over worked and undervalued. Nonstop change in systems, processes and management that never allows one to be truly productive. My line of business was acquired. Before the acquisition we all enjoyed our jobs and had exceptional benefits, now work is painful and benefits are only average. I have had 7 managers in as many years. The current management team has no idea how much the employee experience has deteriorated. I've also noticed the phrase 'Work/Life Balance' being replaced with 'Work Flexibility'. They are flexible all right but the balance is gone.

    Advice to Management

    Without employees you have no service to provide. Without a service you have no clients. Without clients you have no revenue. If you want to increase revenue in the United States, you might want to stop focusing on decreasing employees in the United States. Make sure you have enough and the right employees to provide an excellent service that clients are very willing to pay top dollar for.
