A great starting place
Senior Investment Accountant (Current Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 28, 2012
State Street is a good place to start a career and an excellent opportunity to learn more about the financial service industry. The managers are helpful and great mentors. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to meet and interact with great people.

Operations Processing Analyst Trainee (Current Employee), Boston, MAJanuary 22, 2015
Pros: location
Cons: healthcare and benefits
Overall a typical work day is not too bad. Management can improve. You do learn a lot through this company that are transferable skills you can carry on to other jobs or for your career. Hardest part of the job would be the end of the day the last two hours of work. Heavy on emails and communication. You have to be good with customer service skills. A lot of office skills are developed here.

Good Company Out of College to Get Your Feet Wet In the Financial Services Industry
Account Manager/Client Service Manager (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJanuary 21, 2015
Pros: lots of training available, promotions were always within your grasp, light atmosphere, good entry-level place to start
Cons: poor starting pay
When I started, the company seemed very well-run with many amenities including a gym on the fourth floor and monthly employee gatherings. The training was excellent, there was always some kind of support in case you needed it. I could reach out to a former trainer for guidance, and she would put me in a refresher course to learn the material. They were always striving for you to reach higher by encouraging you to take more advanced classes including Path to Leadership classes. Reviews were extensive and would reiterate chances where you might need to increase your knowledge of the industry. They promoted often and when appropriate.

I have been away from that company for some years so I don't know if the atmosphere is the same, but my overall impression was that it was a great stepping stone to a good career elsewhere.

Work life balance at its best
NACC1 Customer Service Associate 2 (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOJanuary 20, 2015
Pros: free lunch, work from home, family comes 1st
Cons: short breaks, pay is low
State Street is a wonderful place to work, they encourage work/life balance.

In our group you are assigned to specific desks, and work directly with the client.

The hardest part of the job is little to no breaks during the day.

Most enjoyable is the ability to work from home, and the huge amount of vacation time that is offered.

Great working experience
Pricing and Accounting Specialist Associate (Former Employee), Boston, MAJanuary 20, 2015
A lot of hard work is needed for this job and a lot of stay positive attitude. Days can get long and hectic but the experience you get is like no other. You will learn something new everyday and gain a vast knowledge of mutual fund accounting along with many other things. SSC is a great place to learn, meet people and grow your career.

Financial Reporting Analyst II (Current Employee), Boston, MAJanuary 11, 2015
Pros: education program
Cons: the work load
It is a 9 to 5 job. There will be a place that you are share experience from each other. Management level will help you to understand the work, the challenge is time management to meet the deadline.

Good for Entry Level experience
Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee), Boston, MAJanuary 6, 2015
hard to advance, stiff culture in some groups, not very challenging, and terrible pay.
The turnover rate is very high. This company is good for college grads or senior level management. The folks somewhere in the middle seem to get lost in the shuffle.

It was a great learning experiance
Office Assistant (Former Employee), Boston, MADecember 22, 2014
I was an intern at state street while i was attending high school. Definitely was an experience of the financial world i had no idea about. Willing to learn more. I spent most of the day archiving files and putting away boxes full of data. It was more of a humble, but also fast pace environment.

It's horrible for management, okay for a worker
OFFICER, United States Investor Servicing (USIS) (Former Employee), Boston, MADecember 21, 2014
Cons: everything
STATE STREET CORPORATION is a world wide financial services servicing company. The days are extraordinarily long as you are dependent on world wide markets closing. Many people are recruited from sports out of college, pro's and semi-pros and run around the office all day, every day, for years. There is an extremely uncomfortable alternative feeling in the office. Honestly, I haven't wanted to step foot in an office, or anywhere for that matter once I left. Avoid, avoid, avoid.
