    I worked at Mellon Capital Management full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The folks at Mellon Capital were some of the most clever, dedicated colleagues I have ever worked with. Teams worked together for a common goal, streamlined processes efficiently because they had to- post 2008- and though there were always market challenges, we were always creating new products and custom solutions and marketing them efficiently.

    Cons

    Post 2008, departments were skimmed and new hires were scarce. Raises were scarce in all departments. At times there were too many custom solutions and product, and teams were spinning plates to catch up. There was some back and forth with centralizing sales and roles from corporate, which led to streamlining and company merger. Some archaic client service solutions, but client service was updating software and coming up to speed.
