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

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

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at State Street full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Worked on a very big client, Blackrock, which has a large mutual fund mix and got great exposure to municipal bond funds, mortgage backed funds, international equity funds, forex, and a large array of derivatives. Pay was ok.

    Cons

    Work was a bit mundane, not much flexibility at all to do anything, even excel spreadsheets were locked by IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much to say since State Street closed the office and laid off everyone.
