      Low salay, Long hours, bonus is a joke, no leadership

      Pros

      Nice office in downtown montreal with easy access to metro and bus + REM in the future. Free coffee and tea and paid food and taxi for long OT. Colleagues are fun and can joke around. Good benefit 3 weeks paid vacation + health and dental + paid for your continuing study like CPA or CFA

      Cons

      Low salary. A1 salary around 38K, A2 43K, A3 50K, Manager 55K. Bonus is a joke which is around 1200$ per year and 300$ of increased in yearly salary. HR will lie to you that every position level has same salary but in fact everyone is different (I found out by asking a close co worker) so when you get a promotion, there is no negotiation. You are just a number. There is no feelings attached and they don't care about you since all the big dudes are in Boston.

      State Street Response

      Brand Manager

      Thank you for sharing your feedback about your experience at State Street. As an employee of almost a year now, I can attest to the tremendous work-life balance State Street offers and the incredible teams I have worked with. Outside of the day-to-day job, they have provided many opportunities to participate in varying areas of interests such as the Professional Women's network, Environmental Sustainability Employee Network and the BeWell community. State Street also rolled out a new digital learning platform where teams encourage each other to take courses in their areas of interest to advance their skillset and become more well-rounded individuals., As a large organization, we understand that navigating one's career may pose some challenges given the diverse set of options. We would encourage you to speak with your manager to take advantage of our newly rolled out in-house initiatives to advance your current skillset, personal development, and any aspiring career goals through this initiative. Thank you once again for your valuable feedback. — Nicole, Professional Development Program
