    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at State Street full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    None currently, at least in IT division or what's left of it.

    Cons

    Outsourcing everything, no sense of structure and direction, people treated as bodies and get assigned to roles that they have zero competency in. Outsourcing isn't working out as well as it was sold and presents more issues than it claimed to solve.

    Advice to Management

    Take people specialties and competencies in consideration before assigning them to fill available roles.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at State Street as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Profitable, growing company. One of the biggest in its field, global presence.

    Cons

    Past several years have continued to see job cuts and outsourcing. They will do whatever they can to save money. Hiring seems to be comprised of contractors

    Advice to Management

    People, departments, and divisions spread too thin may hurt company in long run. Of course current management won't care as long as they keep getting shares and increasing their value by eliminating jobs.
