I worked at State Street full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good entry level place to get experience. Good place to retire if you have no ambition and don't care about career growth.

Cons

Salary increases are pathetic. No opportunities for growth. Management is always looking to give you a rating of 3 or less so they can avoid paying you a decent compensation increase. If you are liked by your manager, you get flexible work at home. If you not liked by management, you have to come to work.
Like to outsource to India, then hire the FTE's back as temp assignments at lower pay and no benefits when outsourcing fails! Pathetic...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

How's outsourcing to India going? Guess you got your fat bonuses eh? Can't believe PIMCO is paying for this pathetic mess.

    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.

    Managment can channelize the energies of people with different skill sets and optimize it .
