I worked at State Street full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Opportunity for growth
Commitment to work life balance

Cons

Not the bank it used to be that cared about the employees and if you excelled you were rewarded. Too much outsourcing has gone on and valuable people were lost through no fault of their own

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at State Street full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Simple job functions, don't need to think much after learning processes
    Relatively little job stress
    Friendly work environment
    Solid resume builder
    Will hire people with little work experience
    CEO and Senior Vice President conduct quarterly "Town Hall" style meetings where various issues within the company at the corporate and office levels are discussed

    Cons

    Job is very repetitive
    Very low salary for the industry, even up to the Officer level
    Relatively easy to get complacent within the company

    Advice to Management

    I don't blame direct management for low salary. Knowledge is power, management should focus more on explaining what the processes are doing, rather than just simply forcing you to memorize the proper steps.
