Especially if you are a young person just finishing up college. Don't waste your time being an intern or getting a job at BNY Mellon. You will regret that decision in less than 6 months I promise you that. You would not believe the dysfunction and the level of hostility that exists in the corporate culture here. All the veteran folks here come to work gripped with fear about loosing their job, which has now become obsolete and meaningless. The managers operate in fear, so they try to micro manage absolutely everything, just so they can give the impression that THEY are in charge. Managers here are so gutless and clueless. I interned for a coding job and the manager I reported to didn't know the first thing about coding. She wouldn't make eye contact with anyone, she was just on the phone all day. I quickly learned that if I ever see a message on my computer that says "hello world," I can promise you that message didn't come from my manager. Managers can't make a decision about ANYTHING at this company. All they know how to do is to take all the credit for everyone else's meaningless work. Heaven forbid that you are a new hire. You wont get treated with a single ounce of respect. They will bog you down with all this meaningless busy work, so they can keep you out of the way. The culture is very hostile to new hires because they are afraid that you will actually care about your job and do a lot of work, which in turn makes someone else out there look bad. You are punished for working and rewarded for making new friends in all the right places.
Its such a hot mess. There is no attempt by anyone to streamline processes, improve efficiencies, or to work smart instead of hard. Everyone is afraid of everything. Your coworkers will deliberately make things as inefficient and as difficult as possible. They will work hours on meaningless mundane tasks, because they think they'll have more job security if they never run out of work, and so they just make up work out of the thin blue sky.
yeah don't work here.
