I worked at State Street full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There were lots of good people working there who were always willing to help.

Cons

Much of the IT organization was incredibly siloed. For example, the team that applied patches was in a different group entirely from the team that determined which patches needed to be applied which was different from the security team.

I've left since everything started outsourcing which I've heard has been quite problematic.

    Too many layoffs of the people who have the most knowledge, not enough people left behind to do the work, everything is being outsourced to other countries, no stability.

    Put more money into IT and supporting the applications that are your bread and butter
