Bank of New York Mellon (BNY Mellon)

Summer Analyst Program

June - August 2018 • Oriskany, NY

What I liked

I was able to greatly expand upon my network during the 10 short weeks of my internship. I had an amazing manager who served as both a mentor and a teacher.

What I wish was different

I wish that I was located in a bigger city, so that I would've been surrounded by more interns.

Securities Shared Services Summer Analyst

June - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

Allowed for a fantastic amount of networking, which was important because I was hoping to change divisions upon returning. Also allowed for me to learn quite a bit about custody banking, which is rarely taught in school.

What I wish was different

Was not the original division that I had hoped for, nor interviewed for. I took the opportunity that was presented because it was new and I really liked BNYM, though I did not end up loving the area I was in. However, I was able to pivot out of that division and into one that was more suited for me.

Advice

Always look to network both within and outside of your group. This can be especially important in large organizations because it affords you the opportunity to learn about other areas, as well has the flexibility to pivot your career path into other parts of the same organization should you want to do so.

Full-Stack Software Engineer

May - August 2018 • Pittsburgh, PA

What I liked

I learned many industry technologies that are not explicitly taught in most University courses. The environment was similar to how Google is viewed, many perks and relatively laid back.

What I wish was different

Although I learned many new technologies, I wish there had been more work pertaining to inventing new solutions to problems using custom data structures and algorithms.

Advice

Prepare to develop code in a completely different way from what you are used to. Most requirements for industry projects are much different than what you would expect from an assignment in a University course.

Application Developer

March 2017 • Pittsburgh, PA

What I liked

The exposal to the corporate industry and how it functions at a daily level.

What I wish was different

More modernization. Very traditional in terms of professional atmosphere.

Advice

Do it. You won't know what you like until you try it and if it's not to you're liking, that in itself is a silver lining = you know what you don't like.

Human Resource Summer Analyst

June - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

The independence I was given in completing my project. My manager made herself available if I needed any help with my regular deadlines, but gave me space and trusted that I would be able to complete them.

What I wish was different

Advice

Networking is seriously a huge part of success in the business world. I made it a goal to set up meetings with at least three new people a week so I could expand my network and learn as much as I could about the bank. I firmly believe that doing this was an instrumental step in receiving my return offer for after I graduate. Forcing myself out of my comfort zone and meeting new people ended up really paying off.

Accounting Analyst Intern

June - August 2015 • Pittsburgh, PA

What I liked

I like the job mentorship, being available for the next project, and the fun activities with interns (volunteering and Pittsburgh Pirates ball game)

What I wish was different

I was doing mostly the same tasks every day, so I was hoping to work in more than 1 department, though my supervisor allowed me to work in another division for a day.

Advice

Take notes on the first day. At the end of your internship, develop those notes into a final edition and pass it on to the next intern in the department.
