I worked at State Street full-time (More than a year)

Pros

great corporate learning and development, great place to learn and gain experience

Cons

worked so many hours @ such LOWEST pay EVER in the industry.
My team: because they are over-worked and really under paid... everyone is not happy at state street and they don't treat each other nicely. kinda sad.

    Pros

    It's a good place to start your career, easy to get into straight after studies. If you want, you can learn quite a bit of practical basics of finance. If you don't want, you can click F11 all day and still get paid. Company offers quite ok internal trainings, some opportunities of advancement and stability.

    Cons

    Rather old fashioned and not used anywhere outside the company accounting system. If you don't want to be a small gear in a huge machine - stay clear. If you want opportunities to exercise your creativity and find your true self at work - stay clear. If you want a CV position that will help you reach executive levels - stay clear. In short - you are not an unique snowflake here.

    Advice to Management

    If it ain't broken - don't fix it. And it doesn't seem to be broken.
