I worked at State Street as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Teamwork is good, and it works in a team managed environment. It is laid back, you can go to lunch or breaks whenever you want.

Cons

The training was AWFUL!! The people are snotty if you don't know as much as them. It is a hurry up and wait type rollercoaster all day, as there were hours with nothing to do, then all the work comes in 30 minutes before you have to leave. You cannot leave until all of your files have been checked, so if the people checking them are behind or just not doing their job, you are stuck late at work.

Advice to Management

Get better trainers! The manager needs to be a little more involved, and higher ups and even HR had no idea what we do. They couldn't even explain what the job was in any of the interviews!
