    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This was my first company. BNY was my dream. My experience in this company was good.

    Cons

    Work pressure was there but for me it was good because I love working hard.

    Advice to Management

    They should give preference to BNY employees if they moved to any other countries. Ex. I was working in BNY Pune I left my job because I got married and my husband is in Belgium. I never thought of leaving this company. I am trying hard to get job in BNY again. Please give some preference atleast to those employees who left job due to such reason and without working anywhere else they want to join BNY.

    I have been working at BNY Mellon full-time

    Pros

    - Decent salary and flexible benefits package.
    - Great exposure to EMEA financial services regardless of what area of business you go into.

    Cons

    - Increasing micromanagement - you're expected to collect stats on a daily basis for every task that comes in. Team leaders will at times listen in on conversations or email your manager because you've looked at your phone for more than a few minutes.
    - Managers pick and choose application of policy to suit them.
    - Managers not confidently managing expectations. Having everything marked as urgent sometimes makes it harder to manage an already large workload.
    - This is a good place to start a career in financial services but just know if you are a junior/administrative member of staff, you will be thrown under the bus for senior staff mistakes.
    - High turnover of staff means you will often be doing 2-3 people's jobs.

    Advice to Management

    - Be more present and actually support your staff.

    Pros

    Great team, varied work, central location, impressive work-life balance.

    Cons

    Vast organisation which can be overwhelming at the beginning. Once through this, it's great- dedicated staff who collaborate well.
    More Project and Programme managers required for the sheer size of business change being undertaken. It works at the moment, but would be more efficient with more specialist PMs.

    Advice to Management

    Focus even more on technology transformation.

    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time

    Pros

    salary for what you can find in the area, good to gain some experience and than leave

    Cons

    the most unprofessional work environment I have ever seen. Managers without personality or charisma, unsure of what they actually know about their jobs. Bullying culture and very rubbish training. Managers dont look at performance but at how much they personally like you.

    Advice to Management

    be professional and fair
