I worked at State Street full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Worked on a very big client, Blackrock, which has a large mutual fund mix and got great exposure to municipal bond funds, mortgage backed funds, international equity funds, forex, and a large array of derivatives. Pay was ok.

Cons

Work was a bit mundane, not much flexibility at all to do anything, even excel spreadsheets were locked by IT.

Advice to Management

Not much to say since State Street closed the office and laid off everyone.
