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

    Pros

    It's a good place to get your foot in the door and build your resume.

    Cons

    Very high turnover. Long hours and unhealthy work-life balance. Every employee is disposable and can easily be replaced. Promotions are not based on hard work but who you are friends with. Sorry, but I'm not willing to kiss up to upper management to get a raise/promotion - my hard work and skills should be the determinant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your employees and make sure they feel appreciated and are happy. Do some team building exercises.
