A good place to gain experience.
Investment Accountant (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 January 2013
I began my career at State Street, coming straight out of college, I had no idea of what to expect.

State Street was a great way to gain experience within the Mutual Fund industry. It was a stepping stone to me getting into my next place of employment.

There were some serious concerns, such as lack of work life balance, and the fact that we were required to work overnight on new years eve.
Pros
good place to gain experience
Cons
long hours, lack of work life balance, poor salary
