Pros: always on the move and a lot of chances to learn something new every day
Cons: not having all the time i want to take some trainings
The daily management of a support team on a trading floor is something exciting. Always on the move and working under pressure and tight deadline.

Moving to that position and at that same time changing country has been challenging but rewarding.

Moving to another country is something I'm not afraid of, it's giving me a chance to enhance my knowledge – more... and challenge my skills. – less

Merged company still seems separated
Systems Software Specialist II (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJuly 7, 2014
Pros: talented people
Cons: too many layoffs
There's a lot of goals that depend on others helping you achieve them. Performance goals seem unattainable with too much emphasis put on metrics.

They days are busy with emails coming from all different parts of the organization. The hardest part of the job is being able to refocus after so many interruptions.
The people are the most enjoyable part – more... of the job. There are a lot of talented people in the organization. – less

Not great.
Trust Department (Current Employee), USJuly 2, 2014
Terrible senior management and terrible technology. Very focused on the short term. For the most part, the company is run for the benefit of management, not for the share holders or clients or for the long term interest of the corporation. As a result, many poor decisions are made to protect each department's senior management. This is starting to change, – more... but much damage has already been done. Also, the merger was executed to protect NY executive's fiefdom's, at tremendous expense to shareholders. For example, when the merger occurred, the target platform used was BNY's, not Mellon's, even though BNY was many versions behind Mellon. This decision alone would have been very, very costly. Also, software was developed with little input from people in the field, resulting in virtually unusable applications that turned out to be very expensive to support. Raises and pay are both far behind industry standards and the company is now laying off large numbers of employees. This is in part because they have been losing so many clients. So they are in a downward spiral which will be difficult to reverse. Had they made good management decisions and invested in their products, they would not be in such a difficult spot today. – less
