I’m curious, what qualifies as harassment by your boss? I’m not talking about s-xual Harassment, more harassment in the form of subtle bullying by your boss? Has anyone experienced this here? Further any thoughts on voluntary layoffs by the bank in 2020? This situation is miserable, it seems like it wold be a win win move for many people. Anyone want to join me if there was a voluntary layoff?

I endured eight long years of being bullied, lied to and about by an insecure bnym manager before being "displaced" in 2018. This manager who is now a "director" is infamous for deleting incriminating emails and meeting invites as well as his selective memory. As a micro manager he made it clear that he was not pleased that I was able to identify solutions for clients and other areas of the bank without his assistance. However, my biggest "crime" was that I developed numerous positive relationships with both of those groups and was afforded multiple awards and accolades for those efforts. Whereas his reputation was and remains as someone who just loves to hear himself talk.
Guys, if the problem started with your co-workers and managers or lead, it's time to says goodbye. I was also taught losing a job at BNY would be dire, Iike everyone would think. However, when I landed in a bigger company with a better environment, in nutshell, everything was bigger and better. What happened at BNY was a blessing.
I thank you, everyone, who went against me and supported my exist. In life everything happens for a reason! Take the challenge and move on! God loves you and trust you that you can take this challenge. Slowly people who went against you will start seeing their karma changed, karma will hunt them differently. Trust me ’karma is a b–ch’ they will see things are changing soon in their life. You do not have to do anything, if you are lucky, you will get to see bad things happening in these people life, just wait and see!
don't trust HR. Contact the Ethics hotline if you really believe you have an issue.
My managers were always good to me. They expected a lot, and rewarded me accordingly. Others may have had a different experience. My complaints about management really have nothing to do with their treatment of me, but more about the general mismanagement, disorganization, and overall toxic environment that permeated BNY, from the top all the way down. Good luck with THAT.
I’m trying to “engineer” my lay-off, but man it’s tough. A battle of patience.
Systematic dismantling is the way to go because this way they get rid of the burden of severance package. If they put you in enormous pressure on you and everyone wants you to take responsibility for it, then this is the red flag, time to reckon.
It is called Systematic dismantling of a fragile mind . They manipulate you to the point so that you fail and leave the place .If that is the case I want to fail and get laid off . It is high time BNY Mellon starts looking at the role of these manager's in the organisation year 2021 onwards. I do not see BNY Mellon doing any analysis on the number of attrition in the team .They are just focussed on hiring .I bet it would be a tough time for these manager's to continue in the current WFH model as they are losing control over a resource . The current model should only look at the ground level employees capable of performing and delivering to the Clients .
that's right. we might not have any layoffs in 2020. But you can be sure they will make you want to quit if they want to.
You are the one that determines if you are being bullied by your boss. There’s no written guidelines on bullying or harassment at bny Mellon. Even if you are told that there are guidelines, there really isn’t because everyone just does what they want at this company. So you make the call, not them. If you are being bullied then it needs to be reported to hr. If you have solid proof that you are being bullied, such as an email from your boss that can prove you are being bullied, then that would be terrific.
There’s really no such thing as voluntary lay-off at bny. Nothing is volunteered, everything is voluntold.
Something that does exist at bny Mellon is the ability to “engineer your lay-off.” I was able to successfully do that and it’s been an absolute Godsend.
