I have been working at BNY Mellon

ProsFriendly down to earth group of employees.

ConsSalary is low and there's no negotiating on whether it should be revalued for individuals, regardless of skill set. Systems are poor.

Culturally & Strategically Fractured

ConsCripplingly risk-averse
Low salary and bonus
Immature IT strategy
Like stopping and turning an oil tanker
Confused finance division
Inept HR division
Multiple acquisitions and mergers over years were not ever finished properly

Advice to Senior ManagementFinish integrating the company, its been 7 years!

Not my cup of tea

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Manchester, England

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

ProsNice offices and decent vending machines

ConsFull of people who have no clue what they are doing
If you don't know ''somebody'' or a manager then you are likely to be ignored
Poor decision making
Absolutely rubbish pay
Top level managers have no clue what is going on in the day to day running

Advice to Senior ManagementStop giving opportunities to the same old people and look at what each individual can bring. A lot of people feel left out as those who have been with the company for ages are deemed important or valuable.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
