I have been working at State Street full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at State Street full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ability to learn and take on new tasks is really up to you.
    Can transfer to new departments so other opportunities are available.

    Cons

    High stress
    Management is helpless to change
    Very low entry-level salaries so if you were to make a career at SS, you would need to leave and come back to get the pay you desire

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be nice to have a stock option program that is offered at other companies
    Discord when company performs well but jobs are still cut

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
