A fine large bank with a small town atmosphere
Assistant Treasurer, Officer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 23, 2017
A great firm to get to the nuts and bolts of trust administration from a corporate perspective. It has a very deep bench of clients, a highly educated and motivated staff, and a firm commitment to providing the very best service to its clients. The culture was fairly warm and encouraging, and communications were given from the top to the most junior employee fairly regularly.
Pros
Reasonable benefits.
Cons
Odd vacation rules.

Accounting and Reporting Specialist (Former Employee) –  Everett, MASeptember 21, 2017
Typically go in and open all accounts, complete daily checklists, and then various other tasks. Management does not micro-manage, allows you to get your work done and have fun while doing it.

Analyst, Client Onboarding, Transitions/KYC (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 21, 2017
I enjoyed working at BNY Mellon, my department was like family away from home. A typical work day is balanced may start slow then end up busy or vice versa. I have learned much more skills than expected and pleased with my accomplishments. Management are always available to listen and assist.

Decent place to work.
Centralized Production Support (CPS) Senior Lead (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PA 15219September 19, 2017
Having come from a company that was aggressively unfriendly to the employees, BNY Mellon was a good change. There is a bit too much implied you will work constantly off hours for salaried people. Conversely if you are hourly overtime has to be approved, making it rare. Benefits were vast improvement from previous employer, but slightly below industry standards.
Pros
Downtown locations are convenient, Possibility of travel and relocation exist, Decent ability to move between departments and positions
Cons
Lots of expected off shift work. Support teams are understaffed.

Huge Corp with Management issues
Risk Analyst (Current Employee) –  Syracuse, NYSeptember 19, 2017
There is a clear lack of work disbursement between groups within the company. A group of 10 to 15 people perform all the work in a unit of 200+ meanwhile the senior management team understands very little of who performs what functions.

Cultural Changes
Trust Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 17, 2017
BNY Mellon use to be the best company to work for in the nineties. it was best in minority hiring and women training compensations. Since the name change it has become a place you just want to work but not want to stay. the culture has changed. Its all about nepotism. The qualified applications are not hired its all about who knows who. The management is very inconsiderate and employees are treated like cattle on a feeding line.
Pros
Prestigious Company name
Cons
Vastly ignored no advancement for minorities much less hiring them

Great Work Life Balance
Senior Engagement Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 11, 2017
BNY Is second to none when it comes to work life balance. Great people! Advancement is slow, and bureaucracy does exist. Flexible work arrangements is a great perk at the company.

Fed Reg = US consulting; Perm offshore
Consultant - Senior Program Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 11, 2017
Overall good experience. Executives could be better served by actually walking around their departments to see what is going on vs. relying upon politics. The new CEO will clean-up shop and bring in his own people. In my opinion, the Feds should have put a stop to regulation that only created/creates temp jobs in the USA...with business as usual jobs going offshore (Poland in BNYM's case).
Pros
Overall people seem to care about the bank
Cons
Putting inexperienced yet smart 30 year olds in key jobs created risk mess, phobia about hiring folks >40, need fewer meeting with only key folks

VP - Control Officer (Current Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 11, 2017
BNY Mellon is a great place to work. I have been with the company for over 10 years now and enjoy working her. However it's time for me to challenge myself and look for opportunities that will further my career as well as challenge and push my capabilities to the next level.

Technical Lead/Architect (Current Employee) –  Everett, MASeptember 10, 2017
Stay away if you can.
Lots of managers, not many people to do the real work.
If the individual is not a Manager, he/she is an Architect in this company.
