Cons

-Pay is ridiculously low, with essentially no raises this year.

    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.
