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

Pros

Good introduction to the investment industry if you can not get right into trading or research

Cons

Stay to long and you get labeled a back office employee for life. Have to push yourself to make the next move if you don't see yourself in back office for the rest of your life.

    I have been working at State Street full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great for people who want a career change or new grads- both to gain experience

    Cons

    horrible managers bring moral down, and provide nothing but stressful work atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Management is not excused from doing work. it's required that everybody in the group do their share of work and stop complaint. How is it that a senior associate manager has nobody under them to manage? that a waste of money.

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

    Pros

    Room for advancement within SSGA, Friendly work environment, Facilties were good, Some members of the team would go out of their way to help teach new things. If you are liked you will get fast tracked to a senior position if not you have to work a lot harder for promotions.

    Cons

    Pay was on the low side of the industry, Management lacked the ability to deal with team conflicts, definitely some favoritism amoung employees. Very little movement between the broker and bank sides - no sponsorships given for professional designations on the bank side. Hard time to get moved over to the brokerage side even with managements help.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all people on a team equally - give everyone a shot at promotions and make sure there is enough team building/team morale
