Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 October 2016
Intense environment with a lot of opportunity for overtime and learning new things. Flexible work arrangements may make work/life balance possible. Amazing co-workers but clique management style limits opportunities if not overtly holding back progressive staff wanting to contribute more and/or challenge stagnant ideas. There is lack of communication potentially due to structure of organization. Most challenging part of job is rapidly changing demands and reactive culture. Most enjoyable part of the job is the network of colleagues and opportunities to learn.
Senior Financial Administrator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 July 2016
The fund management company with global presence, badly management when it come to staff, unjust culture and managers are force to get unpaid overtime from staff. Long hours with out recognition and reward.
Equity/Fixed Income Operations Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 May 2016
Overall the department I'm in is a good first job stepping out of school to build your 1 or 2 years of work experience. However, if you are ambitious and want more I feel you can quickly grow out of your role. Therefore, since I want to grow more I need to look for other opportunities.
This is an American company and when I apply to their firm I can't seem to get their pages to translate to English. Everything is in French, never seen anything like it and I have been applying for months. I was so frustrated trying to simply submit an application that I had to come leave a review, it's absolutely crazy. How terrible is this company if simply submitting an application through their god awful website is this difficult.

State Street preaches work life balance however that is not the case. They work you like a dog with no added compensation. There is no true management structure as such the teams are left to fend for themselves.
