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

    Pros

    Strong team environment. Supportive and flexible management support. Variety of responsibilities. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Chop and change easily on processes... Whilst change is good, there was a period when there was too much change.

    Advice to Management

    Remain flexible, approachable and consider consistency.

    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.

    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...
