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

Pros

Salary was pretty reasonable and the benefits were great.
Work was not very difficult and there were several opportunities for cross-departmental training.

Cons

Constant problems with their computer systems.
The department I was in, Backoffice Corporate Actions, had people in there that were there when the department started that would try to inhibit the possibility of newer employees moving up in the company, especially if you had kids or other obligations outside of work.
Though they paid tuition reimbursement for those who furthered their education, management made very little in the way of an attempt to reward them by helping them with their career progression.

Advice to Management

Worry more about retaining and promoting high quality employees who will be able to do an exemplary job in the long-term, as opposed to those who can do the job right now

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

    Pros

    Fairly stable and ok if your ambitions are low.

    Cons

    If you are in the NYC area, they are trying to move staff to low cost areas i.e India, Florida. They won't pay relocation and really want high paid staff gone. You get what you pay for. Any new opening has to go to India.

    Advice to Management

    Stop telling staff that you can get the same work done in India cheaper and better. Losing good talent.

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

    Pros

    Ok for starters to gain some experience.

    Cons

    No opportunities for growth.
    Cost cutting created more work load for existing employees in all dept.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more ppl and value the ppl who work.
