    I worked at State Street full-time

    Pros

    Some great people. Good office location. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Very slow to promote. Not sure promotion was done by merit, more longevity based.

    Advice to Management

    There was always a lot of talent in the ranks. Managements needs to pay attention to that, foster it, and make that they get the compensation that keeps them around.

    Pros

    flexible working arrangements depend on your team. work from home if you like.

    Cons

    Senior management gets paid very well, anything below officer level is the worst. I suggest not applying for any position below officer level.

    I worked at State Street (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A solid company with many good Mgrs and Staff .. Short time - contract but was people friendly - but strict still

    Cons

    Many rookie contractors / IT Staff ( off-shore / on-shore) interactions are not always clean / clear and generational gaps help hurt the mature staff / professionals . Envy is human - but HR and Mgmt should strongly make it a point not to discuss rates / compare and envy others higher rates. The new comers don't realize that others have been here for a while and worked in full professional jobs before FSI fall out and had to take these jobs ..

    Advice to Management

    Keep the effective people oriented management. However, do advise the temps / off-shore on-folks not to run over staff from USA who have made this homeland and work for your company loyally.. Envy is human --but let them keep it in themselves not show on Seniors in the USA -- who worked their life-long in this country for the betterment of the USA..

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

    Pros

    Compensation is relatively decent and the benefits are excellent. Absolutely take advantage of the 401K matching - very generous.

    Cons

    You may get laid off out of the blue...or you may not. There's also a lot of "not my job" attitude and minimal praise for good work. Friends nominate friends for the "above and beyond" award.

    Advice to Management

    Employees aren't just numbers on a spreadsheet. Also, there's no harm in cultivating a little office culture for morale boosting.
