Management and training are none
At the beginning I was OK with working on my own initiative but
after a while I realised that there was very little job specific training
and that management wasn't accountable for my development. Managemnet is a joke; they know how to enjoy the benefits of flex work which mainly applies to them and do as little as possible to get
involved with their teams.
ConsManagement, training, salary, well being

Monotonous, dull and not fun
The job is the same every single day and lack of management expertise to try and ethuse workers through the daily grind. No encouragement or thank you on a job well done or helping others out. Selfish mentality in the work place with everyone looking ot shift blame. On the plus side it is ocated near town and transport is accesible.
There is a lack of enthusiasm in the work place and no drive for advancement.
ProsCasual Dress, food is inexpensive
ConsPoor moral, Lack of communication, No consistency

Not for me
Even though I opted for State Street for a reasonable salary, I soon discovered that this job was not for me even though the Management were very accomodating

Nice people, good job security
Since starting at State Street I have learned a lot about the financial services sector.
A typical day involves replying the client and internal queries. We also prep files on a monthly basis to prepare for quarterly filings to various financial authorities throughout Europe and the United States of America. On a day to day basis outside of the busy filing months, it can be quite mundane and methodical. There is also not much contact with people outside of the company except for occassional client calls or emails.
The management are extremely nice and have made sure that I am making the most of my time with the company. I have learnt a huge amount from them about the sector, and it is knowledge that I believe will stand to me for the rest of my career.
The most enjoyable part of my job is during the filing month when I can see all the work I have prepped over the previous few months come together. It is satisfying to finally see it all come together. However this time is also the hardest as it involves extremely long hours that can be quite challenging.
ConsLong hours during filing months

Nice people to work with
I find State Street has been a good first step in financial services however can be difficult to progress within the company. Also the pay is not very good in comparison to other financial institutions.
Busy professional standard, every day learned new things, management could improve. plenty of work night out. beating deadlines at busy periods. When work was completed without judgement
Conslong hours in April and August
Good place to work. Interesting work. Different challenges everyday. Allows you to learn different skills everyday. Friendly place to work. Lots of different roles within the company
ProsNot far to travel to work

Horrible work hours, management and attitude to workers. Stressful for the sake it, work throughput would be a lot better if they maintained a happier workforce. Procedural documents only upside.
ConsWork life balance, attitude to workers

Intense, challenging and rewarding
A typical day can range from 8-11 hours of action packed learning, decision making and prevention control.
This is a challenging job which gives a great sense of achievement.
I have learned that I am capable of far more than I would have given myself credit for. I have learned that the more expected of you the more you achieve.
The toughest part of the job is only being as good as your last decision and working in an environment that is not team focused but more me/I focused.
Most enjoyable part of the job is the amount of work you complete and the pace at which you work at. You have a great personal sense of achievement each day.
ProsSalary and location
ConsLong days, high intensity, turnover and burn out rate
