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

Pros

Great starting point, you can learn the back office business very quickly. Retirement benefits are good and colleagues are pleasant.

Cons

Pay is pathetic, bonuses and yearly reviews are HIGHLY politicized based on executive management. General training level and knowledge levels are low in USIS.

    Current Employee - Funds Accountant II in Boston, MA

    I have been working at State Street full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is good. I work from home so that is great especially with a young family. Downfall I am losing all my communication skills. Work with some good people at my level.

    Cons

    Just a job and pays the bills. Common theme among coworkers. Yearly layoffs which means additional work loads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lacks communication. I didn't get a merit raise. End of year communication stated how well we have been doing. So much for that.

    I worked at State Street

    Pros

    I worked at State Street for six years and built my resume with them. I learned a lot of job skills and much of what I know about investment banking.

    Cons

    I did not like the lack of respect given to non-officer positions. There is really a divide between your supervisor and you. It is a very arrogant divide where people you come to face to face everyday will not look at you or treat you as if you exist because your salary/position is not at a level to impress him/her.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the arrogance. Really. Oh... and pay market rate too. Turnover is very high because PA's and FA's are not paid what your competitors are.
