I worked at State Street full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good place to start out of college. You will gain the corporate experience and work young colleagues. There is opportunity for growth depending on your group. Good place for stable work

Cons

Poor work and life balance. Salary is low unless you keep climbing the ladder. In most case, you need to go internal interview for promotion. Very busy due to high turn over rate.

    I have been working at State Street as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    No pros, good for 18-21 year olds

    Cons

    longs hours, managers yell and scream, they don't want to pay over time, keep changing the over time rules so they don't have to pay no, you barely get to eat lunch or take coffee breaks. they train their friends and who they want to promote. They are outsourcing big time sending everything to Syntel and HCL in India.

    Advice to Management

    Reviews on here are written by people who work in public relations, they are writing fake good reviews to make up for all the bad ones.

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

    Pros

    The training is really good and you can learn a lot in Finance and Accounting. The benefits are really good as well, paid for all of my son's medical issues.

    Cons

    The pay is the lowest in the industry and its not a good company to move up the latter. It is great for just out of school college students who want to get there feet wet. They lay off people almost every year and loose some really talented people there.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better wages for employees and don't get ride of the people who have so much product knowledge.
