Not a bad company to work for. Probably the best company to learn mutual fund.

Pros

Good colleagues, reasonably good benefits, very friendly work atmosphere. A very good place to learn all the basics of mutual fund accounting.

Cons

Very tight work schedules. Salary on the low side. Closure of business and layoff several hundred accountants when company is very profitable.

Advice to Management

Average management only knows layoff employees during bad times. Great management can turn redundant employees into an asset, not a liability.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, and decent worklife balance. If you work in Boston, its unusual to be in a group where teams don't go out after work together once a week.

    Cons

    Minimal ability to move around company. If you start in the back office, you're most likely going to stay there. State Street also appears to be investing less in employees in recent years.

    Advice to Management

    Better reward high performing employees
