Topics regarding layoffs at Bank of New York Mellon Corp.


Heard from a good source we will not be going back to the office until May or June. If Omicron is subsiding, they want to make sure there isn't a resurgence.

Astronomical stress

Sometimes I really wonder why I need all this, why I don't accept any other offer just to get rid of so much stress. Our manager only knows how to set unrealistic goals and create stress. It's getting worse day by day. Is it even possible to... —  read more

Akash the Bully

Was listening today to another story of him being vicious and underhanded (including toward his peers and boss). How is he still employed?

Friend quit for lower pay

We both have been considering quitting for months and looking at what's available, but he decided that he'd had enough and he just wanted out. The first offer he got, he accepted. Nearly a 20 percent cut in pay but he was willing to take it. I envy... —  read more 

Layoffs will always be happening

It's on you to be prepared when that happens. Worrying about layoffs all the time makes no sense. If you prepare yourself for the worst-case scenario, you can forget about the threat of layoffs because you know you're going to be okay no matter what... —  read more

Ireland Shortages

The shortage of employees in Ireland is devastating at the moment. Nothing is being done to resolve the issue. This leads us to think one of the offices could be closed in 2022. Dublin will always be protected so Cork v Wexford? The lack of... —  read more 

Pay is too low

Actually, pay is low if you look at the amount of work that needs to be done and the stress that needs to be endured. Every colleague I talked to who's left here, has received a much higher pay in their new companies. I think BNYM will have to give... —  read more 

Interview in TSG

I have an upcoming interview in TSG - I see a bunch of negative stuff about that team here. Can anyone tell me if it’s a good place to work? Good leadership? Good technologists working there? Thanks in advance.

Ask for a raise if

If your team is understaffed due to people leaving and you have been left for more work, I suggest you ask for a raise or low key threat to leave. 20k bumps have been give to people for staying and still getting overtime…


Since this site is about layoffs… what’s happening? Last year there were layoffs the 2nd week of January. Any rumors, whisperings odd meetings scheduled for tomorrow?

Will BNYM follow Citi?

Citigroup will terminate unvaccinated workers by Jan. 31, a first among Wall Street banks


This is new to me. I have been working here for a long time and I have never been under so much pressure as now. Why so much micromanagement? Control and monitoring everything only reduces productivity. Or perhaps that's their goal? To have employees... —  read more 

No need to work hard

If you expect to see your skills and work ethics appreciated here, think again. BNY Mellon only rewards yes-men and yes-women who do nothing but are experts in brownnosing. If you have no issues with that, you'll do great here. But if you have... —  read more 

Crowley is done

Crowley has lost his entire firm. So many resignations these past 6 months and even more coming as soon as bonuses hit. If he was a coach they would have cut him by game 2. The fact this has gotten as bad as it is is scary.


Since layoffs is the main topic if this site what’s the word on current layofffs? It’s been very quiet in that regard. Just been a lot of posting here about vaccine etc that are getting really off tooic

Learn to deal with it

So many here really have to develop a thicker skin ASAP. The things some of you are complaining about are nothing but a fact of life. This is a job. You do this in exchange for money that helps you survive. Nobody loves their job, other than a... —  read more 

Secretly working abroad

Since we all have been working from home for months and the company isn’t flexible with remotely working from a foreign country, I was wondering if any of you pushed their luck and moved abroad without letting anyone know.
