    Pros

    It heavily depends on your background to determine your satisfaction with State Street. The salary is low for experienced applicants for this with recent bachelors degrees. However, for young workers without a degree or others wanting to explore the financial realm, it can be a great fit. It has a mostly laid back culture with plenty of time off (as most financial industry companies do) and adjustable schedules.

    Cons

    Long term, they have grown accustomed to high turnover. This could be good if you are willing to play aggressive and move up, but for those less aggressive you could be stuck in a "dead end" job as everyone around you departs.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay would be nice but it isn't essential. Just focus on appreciating the employees you have and motivating them to stay.

    I have been working at State Street full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good health insurance
    Parking (except it is not free).

    Cons

    I went from having a completely uninvolved manager to a micromanager. This place is a joke. It is data entry at best. I understand so many are desperate, and will take any job with the current economic conditions, but please, don't make the same mistake as me. The work is boring, repetitive, and most departments are the same - except for managers, that is. My current manager is suffocating and she wants to constantly communicate and be the best of friends. In fact, one manager considered us all "family." No! The entire department gives me little room to breathe.

    Advice to Management

    Quit suffocating your employees. We don't need babysitters.
