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

Pros

There are many smart people working here who care about doing a good/great job.

Cons

Responsibilities of those who left or was laid off were been reassigned to remaining staff. More pressure to work/life balance. Generally little senior mgr and manager support when requested. Mgt only care about getting the job done.

Advice to Management

Burning out staff. Need to revisit structure and not just bringing in your people from old company.

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

    Pros

    Entry level position of a mutual fund accountant is fairly easy to get and provides a good foundation for experience in the industry

    Cons

    It is completely luck whether you get a disgruntled manager or not. I have had 3 different ones within the company and only 1 was good, the other 2 made the job unbearable. It's not somewhere where people care that they work, it's somewhere where you end up realizing you should move on from. I can tell you, you will print out about a forest worth of paper over your career and consequentially set it aside in a box where it will sit. They will climb the walls of the office and storage rooms and eventually be taken away. Most days I often thought I was making someone a good chunk of money with all the derivatives and options I would book, but it was merely at my own expense.

    Advice to Management

    Do not pretend to be a manager until you know how to do every fund in the group that you are managing.
