I have been working at State Street full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

This place is very relaxed, depending on your department. Usually work is a little slow, so leaving you time to browse the internet for a while, however when its busy, you are SWAMPED! Work is not very challenging but fun.

Cons

Pay is very low compared to competitors such as Keybank, JP Morgan Chase, Commerce Bank etc. most of those companies are starting off at 40k where as Statestreet is starting 28K in KC. Most of my co-workers have two jobs

Advice to Management

Please stay relaxed and weed out those managers that we complain about.

    Pros

    I worked at State Street for six years and built my resume with them. I learned a lot of job skills and much of what I know about investment banking.

    Cons

    I did not like the lack of respect given to non-officer positions. There is really a divide between your supervisor and you. It is a very arrogant divide where people you come to face to face everyday will not look at you or treat you as if you exist because your salary/position is not at a level to impress him/her.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the arrogance. Really. Oh... and pay market rate too. Turnover is very high because PA's and FA's are not paid what your competitors are.
