Good for experience, hard to build career here.
Fund Accountant (Former Employee) – County Louth – 9 April 2018
I worked with a brilliant team of people at State Street, for the most part I really enjoyed my time there. Current freeze-hire in place for those working in the IFS branch of State Street - those who left were not being replaced and job advancement seemed to be out of the question. This made the job very stressful at times and despite taking on more work as each day went by, this was not rewarded financially or otherwise. Promotion only mentioned when I decided to hand in my notice but I had already felt undervalued at this time and I had made up my mind. Salary also lower than competing companies.
On the other hand, the work experience was great; I met some fantastic people and I learned a lot over the 2 years I worked there.
I can't think of any.
Long hours, underpaid and undervalued.
