    I have been working at State Street full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary & Benefits
    State Street offers above average salaries and benefits at the Senior Level that is unbeatable.

    Work Environment
    Everyone in the Atlanta office has a great attitude! It all trickles down from management all the way to the youngest intern. That positive demeanor around the office promotes quality work and comradery. The Atlanta Real Assets Fund Services group as a whole niche is volunteering and giving back. On a quarterly basis you will find some type of event being coordinated by the office to better our communities, outside of work.

    Volume of Work
    Depending on the demand of the client volume can be high to moderate. I have worked on several funds within the last year and I can say that the client enjoys driving efficiency. The perk at the senior level when there is a high volume of work or the time spent for process improvement, overtime pay is offered.

    Flexibility (Life/Work Balance)
    State Street is a big advocate delivering timely deliverables but also ensures you are taking care of you as an individual. One of the appealing items that were shared with me during my screening process is the ability to work remotely when needed. I can attest that perk is official depending on team setup.

    Opportunities

    When I was hired by State Street I was brought on to be a part of a new sub business line of the PE/Real Assets group; Infrastructure Accounting. Within in my first year I have witnessed how expansive and promising this role is. At the Senior Level in Industry you would not be expected to be involved in some many processes end to end. That includes on-boarding new clients, on-boarding existing clients with new funds, day to day fund accounting and administration, and consulting with the client on complex task.

    Cons

    Rest assured, State Street Atlanta has done a great job bringing in new candidates that are competent, who has well-rounded characteristics and is willing and able to move along the team for the better without disturbing a strong foundation that has been set.

    Account Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sydney
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at State Street (Sydney) in November 2016.

    Interview

    One round of 2-to-1 interview only. The interviewers were slightly late though. Had the interview on Thursday and was given an offer the next Monday. No hard questions asked during the interview. HR was very friendly and helpful in terms of onboarding. Everything went quite smoothly during the whole process.
