    I worked at State Street full-time (more than 3 years)

    The initial learning was intense and interesting.
    Had a great team at that time who worked well and supported each other.

    Cons

    Long hours
    Low base pay
    Reward programs was a joke
    Lack of appreciation shown by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your staff better and show more appreciation, especially when they go above and beyond their job description.
    Provide more transparency in regards to the rewards program and provide feedback on how and why that particular grading was given and this relates to the rewards.

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

    Pros

    learning opportunity, if you apply yourself you can move laterally or upwards, decent benefits, pension, vacation,

    Cons

    few people are professional, majority need to go to business school and learn how to conduct themselves in an office, very political climate, consistent and persistent layoffs every 2 years, hire and fire or layoffs, working to know that any day you could be next, constant lean and restructuring going on, management can't make up its mind if they are expanding or reducing staff, pathetic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get some serious professional education in how to conduct business, this practice of hiring and laying off people like we were paper supply is disgusting.. it happened in 2003 and it continuously happens and no pay increase, longer hours, no bonuses, but the executive get their fat checks

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
