      Started off great, however in the past 18 months the company/team has gone rapidly downhill due to the cons below.

      Pros

      - Friendly and hardworking people across the board - Everyone is approachable - Full time work from home option during covid

      Cons

      - Staffing (5 people have left my team in 5 months and not one replacement has been brought in despite a noticeable increase in workload over the past 12 months) - Automation expectations by senior management are unrealistic due to sensitivity of job/client demands - Issues aren’t being escalated properly across the board - Morale of staff as a whole is low due to excess long hours, people logging in at weekends/annual leave days without compensation - Pay is substantially lower than the market average

      Pros

      Good benefits, salary and bonus can be good too.

      Cons

      Long hours, little/no training (all on the job), very difficult to progress due to the "lifers," strategy seems to be driven purely by the share price.

      State Street Response

      Brand Manager

      Thank you for your review! It is great to receive positive feedback on our company’s culture. The management has worked hard to build a great workplace culture that helps our colleagues thrive. I can also attest to your comments on the great career opportunities our company offers. I have been with State Street for more than eight years and have worked my way up from an Associate level to an Assistant Vice President. It is clear that our organization encourages and promotes internal mobility and cares for its employees’ development. With regard to work-life balance, details can vary between roles; however, at a company level, we have been offering flexible ways of working to help our colleagues manage their workload and well-being. Most recently with the COVID pandemic, senior management have recognized even more how efficient remote working has been and are continuing to encourage this trend going forward. Daniel, State Street Alpha, AVP
