    I have been working at State Street full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is continuously reinventing itself, creating new opportunities.

    Cons

    Part of this reinvention also means that reorganizations have become a way of life in many divisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Culture v. earnings - both matter to companies who want to thrive for the long term.

    "Great company for benefits and work-life balance"

    I worked at State Street full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits were pretty good. This is the only company that I know of that where you get three weeks of vacation after your first year of employment. In most departments there is a great work-life balance.

    Cons

    The biggest one for me was the starting pay, it has decreased considerable over the years. Also, most of the company sponsored perks have been completely cut.

    Intern in operations.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at State Street

    Pros

    The experience was pleasant, I was in a bit of not-knowing if I would have been offered a full-time opportunity or not. The staff is very nice and I was situated in the main branch of State Street which is on Lincoln street. I ended up opting out for another opportunity that came my way.

    Cons

    I don't have any feedback to give in terms of my intern experience. I just wish that they were more up-front about whether I was considered for a full-time placement. Overall, the experience was a good learning experience and the department was going through some down-sizing at the time as well.
