Pros

It heavily depends on your background to determine your satisfaction with State Street. The salary is low for experienced applicants for this with recent bachelors degrees. However, for young workers without a degree or others wanting to explore the financial realm, it can be a great fit. It has a mostly laid back culture with plenty of time off (as most financial industry companies do) and adjustable schedules.

Cons

Long term, they have grown accustomed to high turnover. This could be good if you are willing to play aggressive and move up, but for those less aggressive you could be stuck in a "dead end" job as everyone around you departs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Higher pay would be nice but it isn't essential. Just focus on appreciating the employees you have and motivating them to stay.

    Pros

    ....trying to think. No one really bothers me because everyone keeps to themselves and are socially awkward.

    Cons

    First off, the starting salaries are ridiculously low. I almost thought they were joking when they told me. Secondly, the managers are all people who have literally worked here for so long they are miserable...but the fact that they stayed for so long is the reason they are promoted to management. There is no formal training, you're just expected to pick up this mindless work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A positive attitude would help.
