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

Pros

Great company atmosphere. Everyone is extremely nice.

Cons

Very low pay for entry level positions. Work load is too much for such little pay.

    I have been working at State Street full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ok benefits, organized, a job, open for change

    Cons

    No or minimal raises, cut bonuses even if company is doing good, killing motivation

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees, just focusing on outsourcing will get you cheap work but kill creativity that you need in changing environment.
    Why do you have performance review if managers tell employees that they are told to rate everyone at 3?
    Buying back shares means you do not focus on growth but on increasing share value with minimal work.

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

    Pros

    Easy to get in the door, lots of time off, not salaried so overtime is nice

    Cons

    Technology is lacking; I make less here than I did when i worked at Starbucks; no one seems to know what anyone else does which leads to slow response times and other business units getting annoyed with you; management doesn't know anything about day to day processes so the ground floor employees are pretty much on their own to learn how to fix any problems they encounter; I don't know anyone else that works in my office outside of my team; people just don't show up and the rest of the team is expected to pick up their slack; every time you think the incompetence has floored out someone finds a way to push your expectations lower; office looks like a call center; you can't listen to music or even have a conversation without a manager either giving you grief; all of the after hours career building activities take place in Boston/Quincy so if you're in Hadley, MA you're out of luck for any of the professional benefits State Street offers; consistent weekend work but the same few people are volunteered to come in time after time; little to no room for growth unless you've got a few years; jobs are being moved overseas for obvious reasons but it's just not working with the poor training and communication

    Advice to Management

    create some intangible benefits for the office if you aren't going to give the pay to make the work worth it
