    Nice people let down by poor systems, poor communication ethos and parochial beginnings.

    I worked at State Street

    Pros

    A fair employer, good benefits. Some slightly insecure middle management threatened by talent beneath them. Good support for off site training.

    Cons

    Every minute is billable as born from a law firm - this means recording every hour per code per week.

    Mourant struggles with lateral thinkers - the majority of the workforce are not university educated and they struggle when working on transactions with London based alwyers like Linklaters/Freshfields on international deals. On the job training from Directors on complex deals is non existent. Administrators are taught clients, not skills, so don't realise their worth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Educate your staff on international finance terminology. They already know how to do it, but they don't know what it's called. A poor advertisement for your services.

    I have been working at State Street

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with. Big name company on your resume. ITs a good place to start but you will not want to stay.

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to come by. you will have to train your manager at some point which is awkward. Again its a good place to get experiance and get out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to encourage promotions internally instead of bringing people in from the outside. Need to find more ways to improve employee moral.
