    It was a good learning experience but the management doesnt really help you along. You need to be a self starter.

    I worked at State Street full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good colleagues, reasonably good benefits, very friendly work atmosphere. A very good place to learn all the basics of mutual fund accounting.

    Cons

    Very tight work schedules. Salary on the low side. Closure of business and layoff several hundred accountants when company is very profitable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Average management only knows layoff employees during bad times. Great management can turn redundant employees into an asset, not a liability.
