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

Pros

Great starting point, you can learn the back office business very quickly. Retirement benefits are good and colleagues are pleasant.

Cons

Pay is pathetic, bonuses and yearly reviews are HIGHLY politicized based on executive management. General training level and knowledge levels are low in USIS.

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

    Pros

    It's a 45-hour per week financial services job. When you leave the office, you don't have to think about your job until you get back the next morning. And even then, you could easily get away with calling out or coming in late. If you can find a good few friends in the office, particularly in your group, it makes the job a lot more bearable.

    An added bonus is you can definitely work this day job to support an entrepreneurial venture of your own. You can also get away with working on your own stuff during down time - which there is a lot of throughout the day. Also good to take advantage of 401K match.

    Cons

    There are a lot of routines that become mundane over time. General ledger processes aren't very exciting. A lot of times it feels like you're a glorified data entry employee. And you're not even that glorified for it. But again, you know what you're getting at State Street. It's safe.
