    I worked at State Street as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was paid. Office was clean. Nice view out the window. Starbucks nearby. Close to the Subway, parking, and the mall. Also it was a very quiet place to do work in the morning - no one around.

    Cons

    Worst Client in 15 years.

    I have helped many clients improve IT development. I put them in three categories:

    1) The best are both aware of, and share, their past challenges. Being aware of their challenges motivates the client’s interest in learning and trying new practices. And a willingness to share opens honest collaboration to gain from a greater set of experiences and ideas.

    2) Apprehensive clients often will not openly admit past challenges. But nonetheless being mindful, these clients understand the need to adopt new practices, albeit with some debate as goals are not shared.

    3) For the most frustrating clients, it is anathema to admit or even discuss past challenges. Individual managers define and proclaim their own unquestionable success. Suggesting or discussing improvements questions this authority.

    Among all the clients I have had, only two extreme examples fall into this last category – the most recent being State Street.

    Despite the advertised position of Scrum Master and a desire "to do Agile", there was no interest to either understand nor enact Agile's values. Tools were not available. There was sniping complaints from other managers about stand-ups and our "disrupting" use of white boards. Immediate management could not relate to teams empowered to lead their own meetings without a "Boss" - to them it seemed chaotic. Work was replete with an adherence to long-held forms, reports, reviews, and internal-governance – All without review of their necessity, utility, or opportunities to improve.

    Upper management was aloof, judgmental, and detached. In addition, there is a perverse pride in the high turn-over of help – to the point where the names of previous “disappointing individuals” were posted on the manager’s office wall.

    I love a challenge and had hoped to help State Street. But, at least, I did in fact learn an important lesson - including that I should have listened to a friend when he said; “Agile? State Street? – Run! Don’t Walk.”

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My hopes for you were publicly stated in your company's mission statement:

    "We'll take the time to understand your organization and your needs. As your strategic partner, we will work to develop the best solutions for you - so you can perform better."

    How well can you help your clients "perform better" by understanding their "needs" if you are unwilling to do that for yourself?
