    Pros

    Company at one time had a purpose and culture that fostered growth and development for its employees and the business.

    Cons

    Total mismanagement and employee loyalty is a thing of the past. Hard work, effort and innovation are not rewarded. Company management does not listen to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Open up to employee ideas and innovation. De-silo the company.

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

    Decent pay. Short hours. Encouragement to leave work early some Friday's though their reasoning wasn't particularly positive: "if you have to stay late to do your work, you aren't working effectively and efficiently"

    Cons

    Redundant work, hierarchical power structure limiting potential, Workplace bullying, void of interesting, inspiring and creative projects, gossip, mundane conversations, mundane work, simpleton work made very complicated

    Advice to Management

    Take things less seriously

    Strong Balance Sheet, vacation policy is good, offers flexible work schedules, technology has been a priority over the last few years.

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

    Pros

    BNY Mellon Trust Company is an extremely stable environment that accepts almost all majors as long as you're willing to learn on the job.

    Cons

    No job training or on boarding process. The company is full of B and C team players who want to grind it out for the rest of their career with a below industry standard salary.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to weed out the people who play politics but get nothing done all day. The CYA atmosphere needs to be replaced with one that rewards innovation and progress.
