I have been working at State Street full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

flexible work hours, laid back office atmosphere, good vacation benefits, entry level jobs aren't challenging

Cons

poor compensation and talent development, minimal recognition for quality work, hard to understand why certain employees got promoted (very political), almost no formal training or additional learning, very poor communication between management and employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

too much turnover, do a better job recognizing and compensating valuable employees and invest in the long term

    I have been working at State Street full-time

    Pros

    Option to work from home if your team/managers allow it. Industry Experience, good downtown location, ability to move up the ladder quickly

    Cons

    Low Pay, High turnover rates, will lay off people every year in order to replace the "expensive" employees with cheaper ones

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start valuing the hard workers you have and maybe there would not be so much turnover

    Practice what you preach and stop to listen to all
    If you really want an engaged workforce.
