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

    Pros

    Work life balance is good, very little overtime.

    Cons

    No progression, too much automation so you learn nothing. Employee relationships are not cared about, feel very undervalued working there. Management only look after themselves - they don't really care about you as long as they're alright. Salaries are also far below industry average

    I have been working at BNY Mellon full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Get to work with some highly flexible and adaptable staff. Nice culture within the team. Local management allow flexibility, depending on your reporting line. Opportunities to work abroad. Lots of involvement in local charities. Benefits are of very good standard. More awareness and focus on work life balance.

    Cons

    Pressure from shareholders, leads to constant battle to reduce costs is draining and extremely frustrating on staff. Not sure if there is a long term future for the company in Ireland. What senior management circulate cannot not realistically be implemented in the ops environment. Too much unnecessary red tape to get anything signed off. Compensation and pay seems lower than competitors. Pay scales mean we... constantly loose staff, which makes it difficult to build experienced teams.

    Advice to Management

    Allow teams to operate as a business with a budget, rather than to headcount cost figures. Would allow a lot more flexibility for local management and to streamline teams to focus on pressure points throughout the ops working day.

    Pros

    Good Work Life Balance Friendly Environment Low Stress

    Cons

    Unfair Workload Poor Senior Management Little or No Salary Increase for Promotion

    Advice to Management

    Cut out middle management, Assess workload of all teams and adjust workload so they are fair in departments. Reduce Townhall Senior Management Meetings as they are pointless currently Increase Pay rises for Internal Promotions is key to success the best staff are promoted and they leave shorty after due poor salary increases. Management at all levels needs to be more transparent, at times the left hand doesn't... know what the right is doing.

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

    Pros

    Health Insurance, Pension, death in service benefit, salary levels ok for the local area

    Cons

    work life balance - expectation that you stay at work until the job is done regardless of whether you have kids to collect or places to be. Very unreasonable about that. No paid overtime. Promotions made on length of service not management skills

    Advice to Management

    Value staff, promote on merit, understand that staff work to live and not vice versa.

    Pros

    Little Overtime required which allows a good work life balance. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Salary uncompetitive when compared with competitor offerings. Starting salary (for similar role with experience) in rival company largely in excess of what I am earning presently after years of working with this company. Difficult to gain promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the work of loyal and hardworking staff.
