      Approves of CEO

      I worked at State Street Global Advisors full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      The team they bought from GE is fantastic

      Cons

      With ETFs under pressure, SSGA bought a fundamental active equity and FI group. Good strategy, VERY poor execution. Mgmt (excluding CEO) has absolutely no idea how to run fundamental active strategies, and are killing morale on a daily basis because of it.

      Advice to Management

      There are fantastic people here who could succeed if you would simply get out of the way and let them. CEO gets it, and has done an admirable job since getting in the seat of trying to fix some of the issues. RL is either purposely working against the fundamental strategies, or is incompetent.

      Pros

      Decent work life balance. A low stress environment if you can play politics.

      Pros

      There really aren't any that come to mind.
