    I worked at BNY Mellon (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had a pretty great mentor who referred me and encouraged me to reach out to anybody who can help me understand how the old code base worked.

    Cons

    Very limited in selection of projects.

    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They had good health insurance back in 2007

    Cons

    I worked for BNY for 6 months in 2007, so my comment may not apply now, but back then they used the most antiquated systems that were at least 20-25 years old at that time. Additionally, I worked on deals that they had no formal training developed for, so I was in training for a month learning about deals and systems I never used.

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

    Pros

    Good for newer employees but bad for older higher skilled workers as they slowly reduce an aging workforce by saying job has been eliminated only to fill it again.

    Cons

    No trust and honest behavior. Heavy silo between pershing, CT, csd and Asset serving, as well as Europe vs America. Each group doing their own thing ......example regulatory issues and changes especially in UK. Org chart is a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders with firm handle on a silo world. Too manual despite all talk of automation and innovation. Treat people correct and offer a buy out like Fidelity instead of saying jobs are eliminated.
