“Interim Todd”

He comes off as a bit of a milksop when he speaks. He’s the kind of guy who belongs in a corner with a spreadsheet— and he’s undoubtedly good at counting beans and being on time. He’s just not CEO material — no charisma at all (and not to be mean... —  read more

Cause for concern??

So the other day, I learned my department VP needed access to my performance profile as they needed to see my forms in my profile. Could this be a sign I may be one of the 2500 that may be getting shown the door on December 2 or is what they did... —  read more

I’ll be laid off on Dec 2

My managers manager informed me that I won’t be needed after December. I didn’t know what to say except to be really honest and say how excited I was to leave and do something new. The manager took this more poorly that I expected. Evidently the... —  read more

Special project does not mean safety

If you think because you are working on a special project that you won’t get let go, I have a bridge to sell you. They don’t care what you are working on, if your time is up, you are done. They will just drop that project of someone who has no... —  read more

Town hall today with Todd and Mike. Question from the audience about the severance package, and how there is no lump sum payment and how it disappears once the laid off employee gets a job. Todd and Mike dodged the question, saying they didn’t have... —  read more

Remuneration

The organisation is in the bottom 8% when it comes to remuneration / benefits in the financial services sector. This cannot be papered over by false sentiment and statistics at a townhall. Pretty shocking really how employees are treated. Very poot... —  read more

The joy of working for BNY Mellon

Feels a lot like the joy of driving a high mileage Saturn Ion. You just keep driving down the road listening to all these bizarre sounds coming from under the hood. Not much you can do about it but keep on driving, and wait for the end to come when... —  read more

There is zero HR oversight

Our team struggled with our manager. A young, c—y first-timer he didn't support us at all, and was often "working from home" but not logged on for days at end. He played favouritism to one guy, and the two of them belittled and bullied the rest of... —  read more
