    Pros

    Laid back environment and good coworkers. Communication is good and hours are great. Very flexible. Even work from home opportunity

    Cons

    Very low pay. No good benefits. Jobs seam to be flying overseas to India and a lot of people will probably be let go soon.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people better and production and employee moral will improve and there will be less turnover

    Pros

    Benefits are second to none, seriously great health and 401k benefits
    Name recognition, everyone knows State Street
    Being able to work for a respectable name

    Cons

    Punishment for anyone who takes initiative
    Zero communication between management and the rest of us
    Atmosphere and work culture is quite harmful
    You are seen as an asset, not a living person, and once they have no clear use for you, they get rid of you.

    Advice to Management

    It might work very well for you to make money, but no amount of money can make up for if your company makes people hate themselves as much as I eventually did, you might need to change the way that you deal with the people who's shoulders that you stand on.

    Pros

    The subject the matter expertise is excellent. Great place to learn. Flexible work arrangements. Good work life balance. Great locations for potential transfer.

    Cons

    Salary scale for market is mid to low. The benchmark survey must include some disparate cost of living locations. There has also been some offshore get over past few years, but that seems to be over.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, the only thing that could be better are salary and mobility. Seems like there should be more formal mobility both ways between locations. Salary is needs to be high market. If you have the best people, then pay them as such.

    Pros

    work from home benefit is great as it saves me alot of commuting time and allows flexibility in handling commitments at home

    Cons

    alot of overtime, employee morale is real low, management is committed to offshoring jobs, salary is on lower end of industry

    Advice to Management

    find a way to improve employee morale. As a client service organization, your employees are your life line, if they are not engaged then it will reflect in the service they provide

    Pros

    Great people and a relaxed atmosphere for the most part. The work day gets crazy after 4pm when the U.S. markets close. Work from home and the work life balance is aimed to please employees. Casual attire, jeans days every Friday.

    Cons

    Late work hours can be good or bad. Not much time to spend with friends or family after the work day is over. Relatively low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in employees who deserve more recognition than they are given. Pay those who earn the pay. Too much focus on seniority and not enough on productivity.
