    I have been working at State Street full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's extremely easy and doesn't take much skill. You can quickly learn how to do most things and there are no real decisions made on your part.

    Cons

    Doing the same monotonous tasks everyday is a drag and is an insult to your education experience. Anyone can do this job who has the most basic of computer knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your employees and make the work atmosphere less robotic.

    I have been working at State Street full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance is addequate. It seems to depend on the group/function however. Some groups are very flexible while others are very rigid.

    Cons

    The size and the lack of consideration for the employees. Constant fear of the potential for offshoring functions. The employee rating system is political and not truly based on performance.
