    I have been working at State Street full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    *Great place to get some experience on your resume
    *Benefits better than average
    *On site cafeteria, coffee shop, and fitness center
    *Work from home access
    *Managers are generally flexible with work hours and personal issues (experience may very upon which team you are on)

    Cons

    *Abysmal pay (after one promotion and three merit "increases" I still qualify for food stamps)
    *Annual layoffs
    *Constant outsourcing to India
    *Employees generally unmotivated
    *Senior Management totally unaware of difficulties in the lower ranks
    *High turnover and constant short staffing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please increase the starting salary. When the economy turns around, no solid talent will be available. State Street has a terrible reputation from an employment stance. There is no reason an employee should qualify for food and housing assistance when you pull down billions of dollars in shareholder profits.
