Pros: High volume of Vacation Days
Cons: Difficult Work Life Balance depending on your department.
State Street offers good benefits in terms of vacation days, 401 K and depending on your department, a good bonus. However at State Street over the last 5 years they have introduced Centers of Excellence which they are using as a blanket model across all departments. It works effectively for a lot of departments but not for all. As a result there is a lot of turnover during the "break in period" creating a domino effect. Sometimes this breakout works but when it doesn't after a year or two they revert to the original model. Unfortunately, a lot of experienced staff have already moved to other departments.
