What a crooked organization (Whistleblower Results).

I really hope they go bankrupt and all the horrible so called leaders experience the pain they have caused so many devoted workers who were shown the door. Bonus Watch ’20: BNY Mellon Whistleblower Gets His $5 Million—Plus $45 Million

Volunteer Layoffs?

So the bank is not laying anyone off supposedly this year. I wonder if they’ll offer buyouts or volunteer layoffs. If so, I’d sign up. A lot of people are fearful of being laid off and I totally get that, but I bet people would volunteer to be... —  read more 

New work space design vs social distancing

Not much opportunity to socially distance with the new and expensive floor designs at Greenwich St. Those designs so tight with no privacy on floors like 4, and 19 didn’t really encourage or support a true work environment. Now they’re probably... —  read more 

ER Discretionary Discretionary Contribution?

I checked my 401k balance today and I have a $2345.76 “ER Discretionary Contribution” in by balance. It isn’t vested, though. Does anyone have an idea of what this is? Also why isn’t it vested?

Are managers necessary now?

New BNYM lawsuit filed.

Trader sues BNYM for ageism. We all know it’s the truth. Wish him much luck. Hope he gets every penny of that $16million.

Remote working !

Other financial/non financial institutions have started adopting the remote working culture .I am sure BNY would take a longer time to adapt to this new normal . Are they going to break the 220+year old legacy and start working remotely to... —  read more 

awfully quiet on here lately

Not a peep ever since "no more layoffs" was announced. It just goes to show you that BNY Mellon's culture is driven by the constant fear and threat of layoffs. Every day the average BNY Mellon employee fears loosing his or her job. Now with all... —  read more 

Lester Owens resignation

So is the resignation of Lester Owens as Operations Director a sign of the purging of the JP Morgan people Charlie Scharf brought over? Or is Lester just following Charlie over to Wells Fargo?

Don’t be blinded by no layoffs 2020

They’ve committed to no layoffs in 2020 but do you really think they wouldn’t seek alternative ways to get rid of people. If you sign checklists or if you done any voting type things in terms of your process, you don’t think they would resort to... —  read more

Worst technology ive ever seen at a company.

Wow! No layoffs 2020

What a welcome move by a great leader. Let’s get on with our lives and provide great service to clients in THEIR time of need!


You know what is interesting? Insight. Being home you get to listen into your partners meetings, the culture of their company beyond what you've been told. For me, it's pure validation that the culture is very poor here.

First order of business for Todd

Take the pledge not to lay anyone off during this national crisis. The government is bending over backwards to support businesses so that people don’t loose their jobs. Do the right thing and protect jobs.

Todd Gibbons Folks, Meet the new boss... Same as the old boss... Nothing has changed at BNYM and nothing will. This is not a company that wants to move forward.

The real reason BNYM will not layoff this year

As part of the economic relief package that was approved there is an opportunity for BNYM to accept the "employee retention” tax credit that's estimated to provide $50 billion to companies who retain employees on payroll and cover 50% of workers'... —  read more 

Fun fact mentioned online earlier today

Isn't it weird that people living paycheck to paycheck are supposed to have months worth of savings for emergencies while billion dollar corporations are so poorly managed that they're on the brink of bankruptcy after a week of reduced profits??
