Org that hires good people, but doesn't retain talent
Senior Investment Accountant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 July 2017
Daily and monthly processes are pretty standard for a fund administrator. Good place to learn the ropes, and start off your career. Compensation was lacking, and a lot of the good employees leave in a short period of time.
Pros
Foosball Table
Cons
Compensation was not competitive

A good place to start your career
Junior Trade Processor (3 months Contract) (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 June 2017
State Street is a big company, which is a good choice for new graduates to start their career. However, the company is a good place to grow your career since it is cutting down its team size and cares little about its tempory workers

Fund Accountant (Current Employee) –  Krakow20 April 2017
Hours vary depending on workload. It is difficult to plan activities or join groups

There are few supervisory and management positions so advancement opportunities are limited.

Sr. Associate - team leader (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 February 2017
Day to day are very long hours, Overtime is normally not paid even if you worked more than 8 hours. Must be approved in advanced but it is never approved. I learned nothing from this company, You need to be self educated. They show you a few things but no training. Because they have too many clients and not enough employees. The most difficult part of the job was to be productive after 8 or 9 hours.
Health and dental benefits are very good. Location is good too.
HR is supportive too.
Pros
location, benefits
Cons
very very long hours. No balance for work/life.
