Not a bad company to work for. Probably the best company to learn mutual fund.

Senior Accountant (Former Employee)
Princeton, NJ (US)

I worked at State Street full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood colleagues, reasonably good benefits, very friendly work atmosphere. A very good place to learn all the basics of mutual fund accounting.

ConsVery tight work schedules. Salary on the low side. Closure of business and layoff several hundred accountants when company is very profitable.

Advice to Senior ManagementAverage management only knows layoff employees during bad times. Great management can turn redundant employees into an asset, not a liability.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
