        I worked at State Street part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        The benefits are great. The working hours are great. The environment was very inclusive, with lots of events. Great place to kick start you career. Very professional environment with many great people to get to know.

        Cons

        Unfortunately my manager was known by VP's in her department and employees around the office as not having great management skills. She was quick to let go of employees suddenly and for no real reason, and was very skilled at backstabbing. Aside from that i'd say the company is a great place to start a career, but dependent on the nature of your work, it's not ideal for long-term career prospects.

        Advice to Management

        My advice goes straight to HR: before letting an employee go please try to look through the records of the manager they had and see all sides. My manager had a known history of not having the best management skills in her department and by high level VP's, and was letting employees go suddenly. This should be looked into and resolved.

        Great place to start, foot in the door into the financial industry. Please are always willing to help you out. Benefits are great!

        Upper Management doesn't really understand associates needs, long hours and high stress environment.

        Advice to Management

        Client to worker ratio is really imbalanced - please reconsider all the hiring freezes.
