    Pros

    my department offered plenty of telecommute days, and a flexible schedule

    Cons

    poor compensation, culture in the office was very negative, limited career development opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    stop living in the past, and look toward the future. Encourage employees to speak their mind without fear of blowback to their teams.

    Pros

    State Street's 401k match is strong relative to other banks, and travel accomodations are unparalleled in the industry.

    Cons

    Employees generally work 9-5, with few exceptions. If you want to work with a more highly-motivated and driven core instead of individuals who work to just take home a paycheck, this might not be the place for you. This is most likely a function of the type of audit work.

    Advice to Management

    Advance employees more based on merit than because of internal office politics.

    Cons

    Tedious boring and repetitive work

    Many people doing the the training did not completely know what they were doing

    There needs to be a more formalized training program for people starting during the semester as not everyone can get training during breaks.
