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

    Pros

    Good commute. Able to work at home. Realistic deadlines. Enough parking places. Never had to see my boss. Co workers were easy to work with.

    Cons

    Poor management creating hostile working place. Horrible computer infrastructure. Poor technical support. Too much red tape. Targets older workers for layoffs resulting in many lawsuits. Layoffs continue without end.

    Advice to Management

    Your continuing unfair layoffs are creating ill will and will blowback to people refusing to work for your company. Focus on treating people well and people will flock to you.

    I have been working at BNY Mellon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working for one of the major banks and brokerage custody shops brings with it a great name reputation when in the sales environment or even to have on your resume. Most employees work well with each other and are helpful.

    Cons

    Working for a bank they don’t like to compensate well the benefits are also costly. Being in such a large organization it takes forever to get things done with all the red tape and inner bureaucracy and it also makes it difficult to locate certain subject matter experts.

    Advice to Management

    Better salary and promotional structure. Need better ways to incentivize workers who are driven and want more.

    I worked at BNY Mellon (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    benefits, compensation, career opportunities, free coffee

    Cons

    atmosphere was toxic. Played favorites. It was who you knew and who liked you rather than how hard you work. They laid off a lot of workers who were 55 and older and promoted those that are in their 30's and 40's
