I have been working at State Street full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good health insurance Parking (except it is not free).

Cons

I went from having a completely uninvolved manager to a micromanager. This place is a joke. It is data entry at best. I understand so many are desperate, and will take any job with the current economic conditions, but please, don't make the same mistake as me. The work is boring, repetitive, and most departments are the same - except for managers, that is. My current manager is suffocating and she wants to constantly communicate and be the best of friends. In fact, one manager considered us all "family." No! The entire department gives me little room to breathe.

Advice to Management

Quit suffocating your employees. We don't need babysitters.

    I have been working at State Street full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a big corporation, looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than at any other bank/financial corporation. Bonus is a joke. High turnover, smart people leave fast. Worked in many different groups, most of the time promotions are earned by getting an offer from a different place, or being buddy-buddy with management.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to create revenue, you cannot reduce expenses infinitely.
