      Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Pros

      -WFH full time. -4 weeks vacation + 3 personal days + 5 sick days + birthday day off Decent place to start your career and get your foot in the door if you’re looking to gain some product exposure. I got good enough work experience to now work at a hedge fund. Coworkers were mostly good people to work with and supported each other (this is excusing upper management)

      Cons

      Little to 0 room for growth after your first year or 2. Yearly bonuses and raises are minimal and they had a freeze on promotions for 2.5 years out of my 3 years working there. They make it clear that they aren’t hiring replacements in New York. If people leave and are looking to Indian resources to replace the production. I don’t know who I’m writing this review for because they made it very clear they are not hiring in New York. The atmosphere is toxic at this point as most of my group as left and grew frustrated with the lack of appreciation of our work.

      Poor place to begin career

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Relaxed environment outside of tax season/estimate season. Plenty of WFH and flex time.

      Cons

      Training is abysmal. Reviews are overly harsh. This is not a place to come before gaining more meaningful experience in public accounting. They will expect you to know how to do things with the smallest amount of informal training, then grill you for not knowing how to do it, and suggest maybe you should sit for your CPA to learn (yet the company provides little to no support for CPA candidate classes/exams sponsorship). There is a core group that has been with the company for years, and advancement from the lower level is damn near impossible. There are accountants there with little knowledge themselves, but merely got in when things were better.

      A Generic Office Job

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Option to work from home. 401k immediately vested. Generally young middle management. The locations in Boston are very close to public transport and food. There will always be something to do so extreme boredom at work is actually not a worry.

      Cons

      Functional silos. Multiple old technology platforms used for daily work. The workplace itself is relatively quiet and dull. Trying to use State Street's internal social network platform is extremely difficult.

      Company culture is toxic. Pros do not come close to outweigh the cons.

      Pros

      There is a pretty good work life balance, lots of vacation, WFH and very good benefits. OT available for certain situations.

      Cons

      Pay and culture. Mid-level management does not care about their employees. If you want to come in, punch the time clock and not speak to anyone, this is your job. If you want to have friendly colleagues and management who will at the very least say good morning and good night as they come and go, this is not the place for you. Whether that is a pro or con, is up to you. I regularly have gone days where my mangers who sit within arms reach do not even say a word to me when he/she arrives/leaves. Extremely depressing work environment.

      Pros

      4 Weeks + Birthday + 3 Personal days off! New CIO is starting the shake things up in what seems like a positive disruption.

      Cons

      Work is not very interesting. ESP our new internal data mart is intended to dumb down the work even further. Very political environment No sense of job security, we are just numbers. 99% of IT work force are out and in sourced are from India. 0 diversity. $/person is most important attribute for work force.
