Good place to build a career once you get past the lower levels.

I worked at State Street full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

True meritocracy. If you add value to the company you will be rewarded and advance. Most Vice Presidents and above are good, but obviously not all. If you are good with people and managing internal relationships you can be very successful.

Cons

Difficult to advance from the very lower levels. Fairly stressful work especially as cost cutting hits the industry. Fair amount of politics as with any large organization.

    I have been working at State Street full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    State Street has excellent health and welfare benefits, flex work arrangements, and competitive 401 (k) programs.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem interested in what employees who are doing the work have to say about improvements or increased efficiency. Compensation is very low compared to other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use the employee engagement survey's wisely.
