Good perks, but all depends on manager
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Boston, MAJuly 8, 2014
Pros: holidays & health ins.
Cons: managers can be tough & work you to bone without any thanks
Got good review, but chance to advance within company wasn't easy. Hoping that has changed by now.
Great health insurance (at the time, anyway) & annual reviews.
Great holidays off.
Everything depends on your own manager. E.g., even if others leave early the day before a holiday, your manager may not allow it.
Work/life balance needs to be more promoted – more... within the company. – less

Senior Client Service Representative (Former Employee), Quincy, MAJune 29, 2014
Pros: work from home
Cons: n/a
A typical day at work is coming in the am and following up on prior day's issues.

What I learned from management is always be accountable.

The hardest part of the job is when your peers call out sick and your workloads double.

The most enjoyable part of my job is speaking with the clients and resolving their issues

State Street Tax
Tax Manager (Current Employee), Boston, MAJune 6, 2014
Pros: great people to work with, relaxed environment
Cons: tough place for advancement
State Street Tax is a pretty good place to learn about RIC tax and to manage different types of people. They are much more automated in their tax processes then any other job I have worked at. However, advancement is tough to achieve.The major plus with working with SSB tax is the great people you work with and the relaxed environment.

Portfolio Accountant/ (Former Employee), Sacramento, CAMay 29, 2014
Pros: co-workers, good talant, smart employees
Cons: hours, shakey management, management keeps you in the dark
Great entry level job. The talent tends to leave after a few years due to job satisfaction. In the right situation the management is very good but you could get stuck in a bad group. Too much favoritism with the management team. Benefits are decent but far from good. Co-workers are the reason why most stay around longer.

A great company for recent
Portfolio Administrator/ Bank Loan Specialist (Former Employee), Boston, MAMay 18, 2014
Pros: good place to learn the business, many departments to choose from.
Cons: outsourcing, low or slow chance of advancement or raise
State Street is a great place to learn the business, there are many departments to move around which gives employees a chance to better understand how a major financial corporation works.
Maybe thats why it seems there are so many entry level workers that it becomes hard to be recognized and the chance of promotion seems slim. Outsourcing doesn't look – more... to be slowing down, and compared to other companies there is very low pay and loyalty. – less
