Can be great at times.
Too much invested in DEI. Claim to respect work live balance, but that is not lived experience.1

Good vacation/PTO. 4 weeks total including personal days, 5 sick days, Work from home/life balance was good prior to September 2023.
Low pay, lack of growth, very corporate environment. Commuting to office 4 days per week makes no sense.

I only worked there for about 10 months before being part of a lay-off thus my experience with State Street is limited. The peers I worked with while there we nice. Awarded vacation time was good - 4 weeks (but see cons)
No vacation rollover. Use it or lose it by year-end. This lead to a lot of people out a lot of the month of December trying to use vacation time they really were too pressed to use earlier in the year. Started with 4 days in a single week once a month on-site and the remaining remote. Then it changed to 3 days on-site every week with badge swipe monitoring. To then change to 4 days on-site every week, All this despite that almost my entire team worked off-shore. There were no skip-level one on ones. Very old-school mentality.1

This company has cutting edge technology.
I find it difficult to navigate within the company when it comes to getting access to certain items. For example, just to request for a distribution list, you would have to jump through hoops.

If you can work your way up in management, then you'll be compensated well
Company constantly looking to cut costs - jobs moved to India regularly
