    I worked at State Street full-time

    Pros

    Free fruit and biscuits in pantry.

    Cons

    Undoubtedly, by far the worst company to have ever worked for. Low Pay Long Hours Horrible Management (you're just another number to them) Quiet office - no one speaks to each other. Micromanagement 0 culture! Christmas parties are self funded.. Systems and technology are ARCHAIC!!!! The list goes on and on..

    Advice to Management

    loud is not necessarily right,, far too many painpoints to list.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at State Street

    Pros

    work environment was not too competitive. employees get along with each other pretty well. the job was not too hard. quite a good start for fresh graduates. for master's students, it was way too low to start in here.

    Cons

    the system used is solely for state street, unlike jp morgan or anz who use the same system. knowledge gained from state street (system wise) are not transferable. promotion opportunities are limited.

    Advice to Management

    not too much delegation on the analysts. managers and client accountants should be aware of what is going on too. clients would not be impressed with managers or client accountants who were not competent to answer their queries.
