Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Boston, NY – April 15, 2013
Pros: corporate discounts with various vendors
State Street is a very community conscious company that is very involved with giving Grants to our immediate communities through the Philanthropy committee which I was a member of and volunteer efforts through the Global Outreach Committee which I was also a member of and believe their employees should be giving back to their surrounding communities. – more... SST also believes in helping employees have a balanced home and work place environment. My co-workers were very friendly and I would often help them learn differnet software programs they were not familiar with. I enjoyed being part of the client relationships along with my Manager. I learned that it is important for all of us to be Globally conscious of the differences of people and that we can all work together. – less

Cons: people selling the work dont know the work.
Good place to work, wish there was more flexibility. Day to day every position has thing due and deliverables to clients. Local management is really good but some have been promoted to quickly. One of the best parts of the jobs are the co-workers are great!!

Conversion Manager (Current Employee), Princeton, NJ – March 27, 2013
Pros: work 2 days a week from home, flexible work life balance.
Cons: increasing health care cost, diminishing opportunities
I work in a team that is spread across the globe which makes it challenging to schedule meetings and develop relationships. I currently act as a key liaison to the client, a subject matter expert and a project manager. I have received a lot of valuable experience and training in my current role both in terms of project management and client services. – more... I have a great relationship with my clients and co workers but the industry has faced a lot of challenges in the past and I'm looking for a fresh start. – less
Data Entry (Former Employee), quincy mass – March 26, 2013
Even though I made 42.000 after 15 years, I was able to do the work of 2 employees, came in every day and had a less margin of being sick. I was able to meet the clients needs via telephone or placing trades on the pc. I was able to multi task to ensure all deadlines were met. When procedures changed, I had to write my own ones, as upper management – more... was to handle that procedure due to pay grade and shared it with my fellow co workers to ensure when I had days off, would process the trades to avoid a loss, trades up to millions of dollars as we reconiled and paid interest at the end of the month. The job training was nil and you had to wing it. I was one of the top notch employees who handled a heavy timeline, and set up funds inbetween never having a break. – less
Fund Administrator (Current Employee), Boston, MA – March 16, 2013
Pros: good place to start your career
Cons: pay rate is low
Even if your field of study is not related to finance / accounting, you can still easily start off your career as a fund accountant/ portfolio administrator / fund administrator / account controller, etc.
Good place to start a career, but was time to expand my horizons
Senior Associate 2 (Former Employee), North Quincy, MA – March 12, 2013
Pros: early hours
The job itself was very redundent, not a lot of room to move up. Co Workers were good people, but management didnt care too much about the people "below them". Hardest part of the job was the multiple personalities on a daily basis and the most enjoyable part was meeting new friends outside of my group. Learned a lot about the business as well a lot – more... about myself in the role that I played in the company. – less
