If you are afraid of being fired or lay-off, don't try to be right

Don't agree with your direct reports but agree twice as fast with the one you report to
Or Ms Right!
Agreed. If you do fear this, start taking action right NOW. Do not let a job be the master of your existence. Yes, easier said then done. Consider a career change, especially with this company pushing the rank and file to learn how to code.
There is no right or wrong at BNY Mellon, there is only the perception of reality and actual reality. My advise is that if you are unhappy, leave BNY Mellon and find something better someplace else. Don't stick around and wait to be laid off just so you can get your severance package and unemployment benefits. Its not worth it. The severance doesn't compensate you for the years and years of BS that you've had to endure while waiting for it. Unemployment is a nightmare right now because of COVID. Avoid the unemployment system entirely if you can help it. Your best bet is if you are an employee working from home full time. Use that time to multi task and put some resumes out while you are working. The one good thing about COVID is that now you can do job interviews via ZOOM. Hell you could log off BNY Mellon and do a job interview while you are on your lunch break. Take advantage of that! Its to your benefit to do so. You could resign from BNY Mellon and have a new position lined up somewhere else so that you don't have to miss a day of work if you play your cards right.
Particularly when you are surrounded by along of Mr. Wrongs.
