    I have been working at State Street full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    State Street's 401k match is strong relative to other banks, and travel accomodations are unparalleled in the industry.

    Cons

    Employees generally work 9-5, with few exceptions. If you want to work with a more highly-motivated and driven core instead of individuals who work to just take home a paycheck, this might not be the place for you. This is most likely a function of the type of audit work.

    Advice to Management

    Advance employees more based on merit than because of internal office politics.
