    I have been working at State Street full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Salary - only 2500 zloty - around 600 euro. It is less but it is money :)

    Cons

    A few notes about fund accounting. I do not recommend to anyone. This is a waste of time. Your superiors won't say they lie to you but they do. If you don't like them, they'll fire you sooner or later. The work is on time, it consists of clicking at the right time and jumping to the next customer. Mechanical work, without any creativity, thought, only patting and patting the same buttons every day for 8 hours. You cannot be late because you need to send information to the client that the fund has been valued. The rotation is high, people come and go. Only officer and senior associate remain. There are a lot of young people. The worst thing is that supervisors do not respect employees and do not count with them. Not this one, it will be next, another graduate will come after graduation. You have to arrange access to programs yourself, this is a path of torture. If you have no orientation, you can't handle it. Training is very poor, you have to read and train yourself, at least there is an interesting "collaborate" page - where you can find information on fund accounting. An interesting program is "belt" - karate belts. You pass the exam and get a white belt, then yellow, blue, green, etc. Collaboration is very difficult with a senior. If you have any "break" or "crue" - these are daily reports, in which there are incorrect postings or unknown postings, know that you are waiting for help. Either you solve the problem yourself or you have to wait 40 days or longer. Work is a headache, the officer will tell you that he has a lot of work, other clients and cannot just think about your client. However, if you make a mistake, it is your fault or how many "errors" there are - "break". It is an endless circle of negative experiences. The worst is rush, work on time, you have only 30 minutes to complete the task, and here the computer is slow, people are talking around, you have to train another person on the way, someone writes something to you in chat, you can get split. Nobody cares that you have a family, your own life, only the results count. I hit it bad, there are bands where it's better, however, there is time pressure in each team. It is better not to talk too much about open space, because it is a flea market of gossip, they talk about each other, it is very sad. Even superiors laugh at subordinates and their behavior. Plus every Tuesday apples and bananas that disappear in 1 hour. :)
