I have been working at State Street full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

- very involved in the community
- opportunities are endless if you're willing to word hard and not be afraid to seek them out
- global corporation provides a global network

Cons

- economy has limited pay increases over the past few years

Advice to ManagementAdvice

With less people doing the same/more work, doing away with pay increases is not sending the right message to staff (especially when we see senior executives making millions in salaries and bonuses). It is sending the wrong message.

    Former Employee - Client Services Associate I in Boston, MA

    I worked at State Street full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Room for advancement within SSGA, Friendly work environment, Facilties were good, Some members of the team would go out of their way to help teach new things. If you are liked you will get fast tracked to a senior position if not you have to work a lot harder for promotions.

    Cons

    Pay was on the low side of the industry, Management lacked the ability to deal with team conflicts, definitely some favoritism amoung employees. Very little movement between the broker and bank sides - no sponsorships given for professional designations on the bank side. Hard time to get moved over to the brokerage side even with managements help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all people on a team equally - give everyone a shot at promotions and make sure there is enough team building/team morale
