      Pros

      My colleagues are what make State Street.

      Cons

      Senior management need to start recognising the staff financially. There's been too much of 'it's been a tough year' at salary review time, but the executives walk out with a nice package in the last few years.

      Pros

      Not much other than gaining some valuable industry experience that should help you secure a move to a better bank.

      Cons

      Overworked and Underpaid. Management generally uninterested in what employees have to say, often implementing systems & processes to the detriment of employees work life balance. Compensation is relatively poor compared to the rest of the industry and there isn't much room for progression. Would avoid at all costs.
