A good place to gain experience.
Investment Accountant (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJanuary 27, 2013
Pros: good place to gain experience
Cons: long hours, lack of work life balance, poor salary
I began my career at State Street, coming straight out of college, I had no idea of what to expect.

State Street was a great way to gain experience within the Mutual Fund industry. It was a stepping stone to me getting into my next place of employment.

There were some serious concerns, such as lack of work life balance, and the fact that we were required – more... to work overnight on new years eve. – less

Dynamic and challenging work enviornment with constant change
Mutual Fund Accounting Manager, AVP (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOApril 15, 2014
Pros: challenging work
Cons: change to a specific task oriented culture
State Street provides a work environment with multiple challenges throughout the day and is constantly evolving with changes in the business, regulatory and client environments. Recent changes have taken away the self pride of ones work and broken it into specific tasks for that is all you are asked to complete. My position ensures all those tasks completed – more... by other individuals are done properly, timely and accurately before our end of day deadlines. – less

In this role
SENIOR FUND ACCOUNTANT (Current Employee), Edinburgh, SCTMarch 26, 2014
The main duties are to prepare interim and final accounts based on the Investment Management Association (IMA) SORP. At the start of the month funds are allocated to every associate member of the team. Each team working on an OEIC consisting of many funds is led by an AM. It's in this role that I learnt all the basis of fund accounting. I learnt a lot – more... being close to many of the senior members of the team as I can walk up to anyone to ask any question or resolve any issues.
The hardest part of the job is the pressure it puts on the team when two or more members of the team move jobs (to other organisations) about the same time. The time it takes to bring new people in and train them up puts an immense amount of pressure on the team.
The most enjoyable part of the job is its sheer size, diversity of its people and views and the culture within the organisation that blend the diversities together for common goal of customer satisfaction. – less
