Fair Job Work/Life Balance
Data Analyst (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 October 2017
There is a positive job work/life balance but poor management and job culture. For example, there is segregation among cultures, languages, and there is no unity.

A good place to start your career
Junior Trade Processor (3 months Contract) (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 June 2017
State Street is a big company, which is a good choice for new graduates to start their career. However, the company is a good place to grow your career since it is cutting down its team size and cares little about its tempory workers
