    Not a bad company to work for. Probably the best company to learn mutual fund.

    I worked at State Street full-time (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.
