Depending on one's role and how much responsibility you have, I would generally describe the pace of work at State Street to be very fast paced. With the introduction of a new CFO and a new senior management team who have a different vision for the future from the previous CFO, there is a drive to outsource any procedural type work to India. This puts additional pressures on exisiting US based staff, as they struggle to contend with increased workloads, having to complete their own work, train Indian counterparts abroad, who will likely replace them. Also, they have the added stress of more and more stringent regulatory controls to contend with.
