    Pros

    Lifestyle, great work life balance

    Cons

    Senior management not in it to win it. Very passive, lot of lifers, executive team clueless to lot of the departments day to day and value add, they look at everyone to be cost centers.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for talent

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

    Pros

    People are hard working, dedicated to the job.

    Cons

    Management is mostly detached from the reality of their employees, and the marketplace in general, especially in the SF Bay Area.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the "we're highly profitable" message when compensation lacks across the board for salaries and bonuses. No raises in 4+ years, empty promotions, and anemic bonuses when "profits are high" sends a hugely mixed message, and lowers morale greatly.

    I have been working at Mellon Capital Management full-time

    Pros

    Good people that work together for the client's needs/objectives. Can be a good place to learn depending on the team you are in. Good balance of life to work.

    Cons

    Compensation lacking compared to other investment management companies. Personal development growth has diminished in the last 3 years. Lack of strong management.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to commit, support, and appreciate their existing employees. Work to increase compensation and keep the good people that have the experience and care about the future of the company. There has been more emphasis on hiring outside then on investing within unlike when original management was there. Improve moral.

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

    Pros

    The people working here are very friendly and pleasant to be around. There is low pressure to perform and zero downside accountability when mistakes or errors are made.

    Cons

    There is zero upside accountability as well since pay/bonuses are related to how the company or parent company does. Management titles are usually inherited once their previous managers leave. Lack of employee morale related to future career prospects. Questionable long term goals related to innovation, technology, client growth/retention.
