    I worked at State Street full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good, but the company recently decreased the matching compensation for retirement. When completing benefit options, the company intentionally defaults to the more expensive options for an employee, i.e. the employee smokes, thus increasing their health care costs.

    Cons

    Stagnant business model with too many consultants running the show. The compensation for different divisions creates competition and does not foster a collaborative business. Senior management is unethical and HR is just a function in name. Stay away from this place at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Quit. You are bad an unethical people ruining the lives of thousands of employees. You take advantage of economic downturn by laying people off and blaming the economy. You outsource jobs to China and India, yet senior/executive management still walks away with plush compensation. You increase the work hour and tell employees to work longer shifts, yet compensation decreases.
