    Current Employee - Senior Associate in Wilmington, DE (US)

    I have been working at BNY Mellon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It’s a large corporation so there are avenues for people to branch out. There is support for employees to enhance knowledge and learn different skills, and has a good work-life balance. It's a good place to get your foot in the door in the industry if you're just getting started.

    Cons

    Low salaries, lack of transparency from management, easy to get lost in the shuffle. Depending on your point-of-view there aren't high standards for performance. It seems people get rewarded for providing the bare minimum and it seems cultural. Working with other service groups is a nightmare as that culture seems pervasive. The company has a poor reputation as having under-skilled employees when going for higher level positions at other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company doesn't seem to value talented employees at least not in Asset Servicing as much as they should. Talented people should be developed and efforts made to retain them.

    Pros

    Great people and very respectful place to work , enough work and overtime available.

    Cons

    You will get lost in the shuffle, very hard to advance . Keep your head down and do the work, do not speak up or put in the spotlight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more incentives for employees to stay and look forward to coming in on a daily basis. Too many chiefs and very little Indians.

    I have been working at BNY Mellon

    Pros

    Management is personable. Easy to concentrate on the work at hand while not getting pulled in many directions.

    Cons

    Limited career growth due to constant hiring freezes. More responsibilities get piled on without proper compensation. Coworkers tend to make mistakes and refuse to correct what is being done wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more competent employees. Treat employees that are vital to daily operations like they are key members of the team.
