    I have been working at State Street full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A lot can be said about this company that is good.

    Collaboration and Values and creating the future is the order of the day... "Perhaps the decade..." In fact it is a literal minefield of change... but this could be considered a positive thing, and for those who which to success they must embrace it. it can still be a fantastic place to acquire knowledge and skills. (Still...!)

    Work-Life Balance is good and perhaps getting better for those where the opportunity fits.. (Flexible work arrangements are possible, and a level of telecommuting can be optimised for certain roles but this is somewhat rare.)

    State Street has been known for technology in the past, but lots has been going on and especially for employee, the presences of new technologies has never been more obvious. The double edge sword of newer technology here is that employee are expected or assumed to adapt to it. (Well they better.) IT support is self-service, iLearn training is self-service, even social networks are growing dubbed Collaborate aka SharePoint for work and social networking, you better get clicking. So to get the most out of your career, you "must" become savvy to these technologies.

    Cons

    Transformation is rampant, sometimes it means job changes, sometimes outsourcing, but again the attitude here is key... (Anyone who is not aware of Who Moved My Cheese, better read it...)

    There are many different departments and products so it is certainly possible to be locked in areas that are either down-siizng, offshoring, restructuring (transforming) and that can be stressful... Those that do not adapt well may feel can feel marginalised...

    Many managers do not take the time that they could to spread their knowledge.
      - Not to their own teams, and certainly not across other teams...
      - so collaboration in name sounds very cool, looking better and flashier at the top levels.
             (not so much at the middle levels. but creating the future is a work in progress.)

    IT support has been transitioning for years from a full service approach to a self-service approach..
      Those that do not adapt will suffer...

    (But for the people that adapt, IT support is fine, and expertise and documentation is out there for all)
        If IT spend is reduced by millions and millions, employees need to work smarter : Jury is out on this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are not just looking for a pay check, some want good old fashioned, face-to-face inspiration. The top-down flashiness for management to share their values experiences is good in a way. Strengthening daily manager behaviour is better...

    If managers do not possess or exhibit the skills to mentor their staff, we are creating a class system rather than a community... managers in the new State Street need to be given tools to do their job better.

    Whether acquiring basic IT support, or job mentoring, or computer based and classroom based training, middle managers have not been trained or given the guidance to steer their staff better. Some will adapt because of their personal style, others will not unless they are told how.

    But most outside joiners find our support model a horrific change... probably due to managers not knowing what they should know. (a good model with good tools that is not trained well is perceived by newcomers as a bad model...)

    So either weed out managers who do not lead in the new regime, or train / prepare them appropriately to do so... the tools are definitely there but many managers do not care or know...

    Staff On-Boarding needs a major re-write... and the HR folks that institute a short welcome session is not appropriate to the task. (Day one should be about sorting out all incidentals from IT set-up to phone set-up to site tour to access to product info to culture and governance to assigning a big brother type mentor... And it should be by design.)

    There are so much on-line resources but most people cannot navigate it... so get a job aid in hand on day one... Instil values on day one, as your managers may or may not be doing that.
