    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoyed working within the team, it was a very friendly, open atmosphere. The work was enjoyable and I was able to work on numerous projects whilst in my role.

    I worked closely with the managers of various teams, who were based around the world and because my role was quite niche (for the team I was in) I had a fair amount of autonomy with my work and I was able to just get on with it without being micromanaged etc.

    Great work/life balance. I never worked a weekend and the one night where I did work two hours overtime I got half a day back in Lieu which was great.

    Cons

    There's no real progression structure in place at the firm so it was very hard. To envision a long term career where by I'd be able to work my way up the hierarchy. Whilst I enjoyed my role very much I couldn't help but think I'm going to have to leave or switch teams if I ever want to progress to manager/VP level.

    This was a concern for some of my colleagues and those in other teams also.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps introducing a progression structure. Outlining the goals/qualities that employees need to demonstrate in order for them to progress further through the company structure.

    Perhaps offer more internal secondments to employees so they can see different sides to the business.

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

    Pros

    Good pension, bonus potential, sick pay.

    Cons

    Communication on a 'need to know' basis. Very clicky, high staff turnover on the processing teams. Minimal resourcing, too much box ticking and not enough client value delivery. Salarys are locked down for most after your fifty.

    Advice to Management

    Dont treat your staff as idiots, numbers or children. Your people really are who you are.

    Pros

    Exposure to management and possibility to network in all business channels

    Cons

    Work can get very repetitive and a little dull if the managers aren't busy. this gives you time to do more networking.

    I worked at BNY Mellon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone around me (my desk) was lovely. Great location - centre of Manchester!

    Cons

    I couldn't always see how my work was benefiting the company. Some of the team leaders/management didn't always know what was going on, that may have something to do with team potentially moving around but they still didn't know what it was going to be like in a week let alone a month.
