      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at State Street full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Benefits are good Okay-ish Salary Flexible working

      Cons

      Get treated like you’re worthless by management No employees want to collaborate with you - it is a very instructive culture Management constantly lie to you and push you from pillar to post No pay rises and bonuses (they are a rarity)

      Advice to Management

      For a company trying to make headcount and budget saves - why are you employing people to do nothing? There are so many individuals in London who do literally no work. Invest in your employees more there is no development or training available in London - terrible career progression

      I have been working at State Street full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Right now none too speak of. Used to be a place of collaboration and integration nobody has a clue which part of the outsourcing arrangement does what.

      Cons

      No direction, no communication, offshoring functions too many too quickly

      Advice to Management

      Work with the experience you have left to make them feel valued and provide an end goal and some clear direction.
