    I worked at State Street full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Do not work here, for real. You get benefits from day one tho.

    Cons

    Salary is in the low end of market, you don't get tools to do the work, extended meetings with no deliverables. In general it's a mess. No on boarding process, tons of tons of small quizzes and corporative stuff that's useless

    Advice to Management

    Plan better, use proper tools to track what's happening.
