Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Making money when so many other firms are not. Several divisions are doing well (and holding up the entire company) and they are much better to work for.

Cons

Almost no investment in people or technology despite lip service. Does not share rewards. Little humanity. Blatant disregard for workers. Each division is divided off from the others with no chance to move from one to the other.

Advice to Management

Stop pretending of running a technology company and start acting like one. Invest. Challenge and reward. Be more transparent. Stop acting like the old BNY days, we are supposed to be new and innovative.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    relaxed...will gain knowledge in clearing industry

    Cons

    unprofessional, less transparency, biased toward favorites

    Advice to Management

    Need to be transparent. Management favors their favorites only. Procedures are not followed while doing performance review. They terminate some people for no reason

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The team that I work in is very communicative and very receptive to ideas. We work well together and are able to get large projects done because of how cooperative environment.

    Cons

    The company is very new and there are some pitfalls in how fast the company is expanding. There are a lot of moving parts in the company and sometimes problems arise because of this.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to say that BNY ConvergEx is definitely heading in the right direction. There are some many good characteristics of the firm that it will only get better as time passes. It continues to win awards for its management and products, so I would just want them to stay on the same track.
