I worked at State Street full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

True meritocracy. If you add value to the company you will be rewarded and advance. Most Vice Presidents and above are good, but obviously not all. If you are good with people and managing internal relationships you can be very successful.

Cons

Difficult to advance from the very lower levels. Fairly stressful work especially as cost cutting hits the industry. Fair amount of politics as with any large organization.

    I worked at State Street full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was an entry level job so co-workers are all around the same age and they are all just out of college.

    Cons

    Everything was done the same as it had been for a long time instead of upgrading with technology. The job involved the same exact steps every single day. Ideas for improvement were not heard by higher management.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace technology and make daily activities more efficient.

    Pros

    Nice people; decent benefit package

    Cons

    very bureaucratic; support areas such as IT and simple functions have been outsourced. Unfortunately, the quality of work and service provided by these offshore teams is rather low.
