Heavy on management layers but stable environment and a lot of teamwork within each department - would be the perfect company to work for if they establish a clear and transparent communications and channels between the various layers
A wonderful opportunity as a "foot in the door" in the financial industry, however an absolute horrible place to work.
Workload is overwhelming, training is minimal, expectations are high with absolutely no support or communication.
I was not paid for any extra time I put in to get the job done and my direct supervisor was downright abusive.
The people at the company are great, made it a fun place to work. The job itself could at times feel monotonous but there were opportunities to improve your own skills and advance oneself if you took them.
In the morning I carefully check emails and reply to pending emails.
Follow my to do list and update it if needed.
Then start doing my daily tasks.
I learned how to have time management and prioritize tasks according to its importance.
Relatively new management with tough market condition, depressed conditions in Hedge Funds are putting a strain everywhere in the firm
Firm has become too big and a bit chaotic so it is tough at the moment for its employees
State Street is a huge company, so your experience will depend on what department and what team you work with. My personal experience in the security valuations department was so so. The work was highly repetitive, there was a lack of professionalism, and a strong feeling of disconnect from any other departments.
Thank you for your review. It is wonderful to hear that you find State Street to be a place where one can grow their career while benefiting from working in a diverse and inclusive environment, and where talent is cherished and nurtured. We strive to encourage our employees to go after the challenges and seek new opportunities to learn and develop, both as part of their positions and as extra-curricular work, so that they keep broadening their skills set. Depending on the area of the business you are in and of course the personal leadership style of the manager you report to, the goals and priorities of the team may vary. However, ultimately, we aim to accomplish our business goals while supporting our talented individuals on their way to success. Zara, EMEA Institutional Strategy, Assistant Vice President
