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

    Pros

    Get a start in a financial services career

    Cons

    low pay, non-existent bonuses, benefits getting worse

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Syntel (off-shoring) and put Americans back to work! I was laid off in January of this year (this is how STT cuts expenses, even though they are profitable).

    I have been working at State Street full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay and decent work/life balance

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic and political
    Many senior managers and groups work in silos protecting their interest rather than looking for the common good of the company
    Very audit centric culture which makes the employees not ready to make any decisions afraid of making any mistakes however small the impact is.

    Advice to Management

    Please bring in some fresh blood to the management team with people who can make decisions. Focus on changing the company culture which is overly bureaucratic.
