I worked at State Street as an intern

Pros

Very nice people, eager to help

Cons

Corporate culture is very complacent - processes run the place.
Almost too conservative

Advice to Management

Take some risks - you'll attract a younger crowd that can bring a dynamic to the company that it really needs.

    I have been working at State Street full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They reward employees with opportunities to give back to the community. Many departments offer a flex schedule for a better work/life balance. Vacation and paid time off helps make up for the well below average salaries.

    Cons

    Atmosphere tends to nurture and advance tenure instead of intelligence and hard work. Very corporate driven and need multiple people to get an answer.

    Advice to Management

    Don't say that your people are the company's best assets when you don't treat them that way. Actions speak louder than words. If the employees are the company's greatest asset then pay them more. Next time you walk into a State Street building or around a department floor, look around and try to count how many people are smiling. That indicator will tell you what the culture is.
