    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time

    Pros

    Lots of volunteering opportunities as BNY Mellon is involved in the communities

    Cons

    Lots of glass ceilings and hard to advance in jobs and pay as an insider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the people taking care of the company. Outsiders come in with better salaries than if posting internally. Does not make sense as the insider knows the culture and in-house applications. Employees are also loyal until they see this company behavior over and over.

    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance, great people. Very Flexible. Great place to begin and end a career. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Management/org is constantly changing. Barely no raises, pay is low, They do not promote from within and if they do barely compensated for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better way to keep young talent. I have seen a lot of great young talent leave because they are given no incentive to stay.

    I have been working at BNY Mellon as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly laid back atmosphere, good company values and corporate vision. Great D.I.Y. training resources available. I don't know how easy it is to move within the company and across the locations, being one of the largest deposit banks in the world they have great global presence with office locations everywhere.

    Cons

    There seems to be a fairly large number of individuals who don't know what the company does beyond their own responsabilities and they are ok with that. There is little global awareness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coach front-line managers and strengthen the managers skill set and comfort level with having difficult conversions with employees on how the employee could strengthen their own knowledge level and skill sets. Treat the infection rather than continuously putting band-aides on. Could do more around employee engagement and company awareness in the workplace at the .
