      Pros

      I wish I could say there are some Pros.. but there are none. Maybe that you don't have to work weekends? ......

      Cons

      It was one of the worst experiences I've ever had in my life and I have worked with different Financial companies and businesses. There is no training and all employees and your "colleagues" hog knowledge and do not try and teach you so they can look good to management. Everyone including the management are like that ... it is a vicious cycle. There is no room for growth and no future within the company and they do not value you, they just point out the things you do wrong and how you can improve. Turn over is insane .. I worked with the company just over a half a year and saw 90% turn over rate. You work long hours and do not get compensated in any way. Management are bullies and pick on their subordinates, they do not even greet you if you are without an important title. Most decent people do not stay with the company because of how horrible it is. Stay far away if you can, you will definitely regret making the move here as I did. I was lucky to have found something better and got to leave this hole of a company. ** YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

      Pros

      1. The wealth of knowledge is there, ask the right questions. Ask at all. 2. Young staff to build good network for the future 3. The brand and experience has led to good jobs outside of State Street

      Cons

      1. Long hours - you'll become more resilient to long hours and high stress. 2. Low Work Life Balance - your value of time will increase and you'll find ways to waste less of it
