BNY Mellon tries to entice women with their "WIN" program, but consistently tampers program suggestions/topics to conform to the opinions of the c-suite audince largely comprised of cisgendered males. The consistent shut downs of all discussions regarding and surrounding gender-gap disparity are highly discouraging.
HR at this company is about 80% female so it is quite empowering to be surrounded by so many strong women in executive leadership roles (within HR). It is a great company to work for with tremendous growth opportunity. However, outside of HR, the rest of the company is male-dominated, particularly in executive leadership and it is not very diverse. Maternity leave is generous compared to other companies nearby and other work-life balance options (such as onsite childcare, telecommuting, etc) are above average compared to other companies of similar size nearby.
Opportunities are more apt to be given to men over women. Women are in senior roles typically associated with females. Women are now also competing for sr positions with global resources available to work in the Us.
I started here after I had my first child and stayed through my second. Family leave and vacation here is great, there are some groups that are very supportive of a flexible work schedule. I support a male dominated business line and while individually I feel respected and valued I see underlying old boy's club mentalities, more so as I get closer to Senior Management. I think things are changing for the better but its a slow process.
