I worked at BNY Mellon as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

You're at the hub of the financial world. A lot going on around you. If you're a main-framer, this is the place for you!

Cons

They seriously lag behind in the technology world. The client machines use OS's that are two generations behind. Everything is locked down, which makes it harder to move ahead.

Advice to Management

I can only suggest things as far as IT goes. It is time to hire more technical folks and start at redoing the infrastructure. Not only will it create jobs, but also help the bank move into the 21st century.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Flexible work / home balance with ops to work from home. Nice benefits. There are some people who care but they are hard to find.

    Cons

    Management is full of people who are more concerned with protecting their own silo than doing anything innovative. They are so risk averse that development drags to a standstill. There are no career opportunities, none. Any training is done merely to say that there was some training. Bonuses are not distributed to those who deserve them but to managements favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the middle managers with people who can drive with passion and innovation and are willing to go out on a limb to back their convictions.
