Client Services Representative (Former Employee), Kansas City, MissouriOctober 8, 2014
There was always something new with State Street each and every day. The hardest part of the job was not being trained properly. It was a hands on learn as you go process so I experienced ups and downs with the job. I met many good people and became close to clients all around the country. I learned much about the financial system, and the ins and outs – more... of investment management and accounting for many firms. – less

Senior Project Manager/Business Continuity Lead (Current Employee), Boston, MAOctober 2, 2014
Pros: flexible with work time and work from home option

I love working for this team! All my managers so far has helped me in my career growth by giving me the knowledge and push i need to choose the right path. Our Sr MD treats everyone in my team as family. We have team in China, India (Bangalore) and London that i communicate on daily basis. we have fun team in China but the hardest part here is time – more... difference. Most days i have to take calls at 9pm till 10pm and if we are having a project release or some other issues i will be on call with China team till 11pm...

I love working with my team!! we are one big family!! we have Internationl potlucks, regular outings with team members and families.... – less

Stay away if you need job security!!!
Assistant Vice President (Former Employee), Quincy, MASeptember 8, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, free parking in quincy locations
Cons: poor morale with everyone waiitng to be laid off.
Used to be a good place to work...now I would not recommend. State Street is sending more and more functions off-shore. Current employees must train their replacements off-shore in order to qualify for their severance package. They are also targeting senior managers for lay off to cut costs. Problem with both is that the less knowledge people are running – more... the show!!! All this for the stockholders. Attitude from upper management is that you can either adapt or leave. This is the way of the financial services industry. – less
