    Behind market on salaries Staff favouritism - opportunities for those favoured by management

    Advice to Management

    MD should consider reviewing marketing team with a view to restructure or remove one individual which would increase Staff morale Senior management should step up when they are aware of unethical behaviour by other senior members not ignore it

    Former Employee - Internal Auditor in London, England
    Recommends

    I worked at State Street full-time

    Pros

    At the time, the team I worked on was great. Staff training to facilitate continuous professional development was excellent. SS promoted culture very well despite being headquartered in Boston, London staff felt engaged as participation in town Halls was encouraged.

    Cons

    At the time the work life balance was not favourable due to travel requirements and an ambitious Audit plan. Also some management (not all) favoured external recruitment over internal development and promotion. Even at the expense of losing talent and experienced staff.
