Corporate Actions Specialist (Former Employee) – Manchester – 14 March 2018
The pay was just over minimum wage yet you are often expected to stay until 9pm. I asked for training on the company's computer system which my manager said 'we look for self starter's in this company' and didn't give any training. Management will talk down to you in front of other colleagues. Awful company and I left without having another job. Very big cliques and bullying. HR didn't care when told. The only week I enjoyed working with BNY Mellon was the training week at the beginning where I learnt a lot. When I joined my department it was all downhill. Very high turn over of staff, unsurprisingly.
Long hours, poor salary, no training, awful management
Senior Associate (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 25 February 2018
Excellent company to work for forward thinking, Pro active and will to invest in staff and their future. BNY Mellon has a great culture of assisting staff in working in different parts of the business to help future their careers
Pensions, Free health check and support, plenty more than I can list
Manager (Former Employee) – Fund accountinmanageg – 29 January 2018
only reason I left was because the role became redundant and went to manchester. The hours were long but the people and culture were excellent. the pension was finally salary which was very competitive
Director of Operations (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 3 January 2018
Too many average people in the Sr. Management. Mindset is very narrow. Lack of equal opportunity culture; discrimination and racism are present in certain areas of the bank. HR is not influential or not effective.
Everyday is different depending on the workload. When training, it is hard to learn as information is not explained thoroughly. Better training needs to be provided. Fun and energetic workplace. Friendly team and colleagues.
Free fruit, social events
High workload, fast paced, poor training, poor salary
Very good work-life balance, great environment to work
EMEA Corporate Trust Financial Reporting Analyst (Former Employee) – Canary Wharf, Greater London – 21 October 2017
I was working at the EMEA Corporate Trust Analytics group for 19 months. The job was demanding with few quiet periods. The team culture was like a family with great collaboration across the team members. The manager was not constantly checking your work which shows that he trusts your judgement.
Global Vice President & Team Leader (Former Employee) – London – 2 October 2017
My manager was frequently asking me to help her to perform her role and I felt she was in over her head most of the time. She also kept hiring her friends from outside of the bank who were inexperienced or unsuitable for the roles which caused bad feeling within the wider team.
N/A (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 25 September 2017
The company has a friendly and challenging working environment with plenty of opportunities to develop and progress. Working hours can vary depending on the role and department but generally offers a balance between work and personal life
Trade Capture Administrator (Current Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 7 September 2017
A typical day at work would consist of turning up in the morning, and going to the kitchen to make a hot drink and get your breakfast. You would then go to a desk of your choice and log on to begin your days work. The management are not your typical management, they would express their assertiveness if required, but they have a very relaxed approach to work and treat you more like a friend, rather than an employee. The culture in the workplace is very laid back, and everyone there is friendly, and willing to help you with any problems that you may have. One of the hardest parts about the job only applies if you are not able to handle yourself under pressure. If you are able to handle yourself under pressure and multitask, working at BNY Mellon is the place for you. In my opinion, working for BNY Mellon is enjoyable itself, there isn't really a specific aspect of the job that is most enjoyable. As long as you get along with everyone else there, you will never have a bad day, and you find that the days seem to fly past, as there is always something to do, and you will never be bored. If the occasion ever rises, that you have no work to do, you always have the option to be able to go and "shadow" an alternate department, so that you can have exposure to what they do, and should the position ever arise, and you wish to apply, you can always say that you have some experience in the field.
