I have only been here for about two months, but it seems pretty good so far
Full time employment (Current Employee) – Manchester – 20 June 2018
As a private person who is not a millionaire (or an accountant), I hadn't heard of the company before I stumbled across them during my job search, but they seem like a pretty good employer. Most everyone is very lovely and helpful, good teamwork going on, everyone is always happy to help one another out. Really you just have to read the "pros" and "cons" I mentioned to get a pretty good impression of the place, at least from the viewpoint of someone who has been here for not quite two months.
Good working hours, friendly colleagues, decent pay, very nice offices in central location, free coffee, on site caffeteria, nice benefits system, 12% pension contributions, volunteering days
Could maybe offer a few more holodays, otherwise nothing I have noticed so far
Clerk (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 21 May 2018
Its a bank and therefore the work is very repetitive. BNY Mellon is a large company there their are a number of opportunities, however to obtain these opportunities the work life balance is often sacrificed, requiring excessive hours of overtime.
Reconciliation Control Clerk (Current Employee) – Manchester – 7 May 2018
Typical day - Time would usually fly by and you're grasping at the time for it to slow down due to constant high work volumes. Learning - I have learnt to improve my Excel skills (Vlookup). It became very important that at the end of the day you need to take care of your mental health before anything else. Management - Not listening to staff, workload unfairly distributed and overall moral is very low. The hardest part of the day - Leaving the office on time. The most enjoyable part - Overtime pay.
Overtime pay increase
Long hours, low moral, management vague answers, high stress job
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
