Pros: free cab service at nights
Cons: long periods of work, little or no breaks
The bank was going through a transformation. State Street had bought part of Private Clients Groups accounts department. Because the workers knew that at some point we will all be without a job, the atmosphere was a nervous one. (e.g A manager might ask one to come into the office for something. The person will come in scared at what would be told him or her.)
In this job environment, your responsibilities were greater compared to Bankers Trust. For at State Street, an employee report sick almost everyday. The sickness was due to stress, either from overwork ( for we would work about 12 hours a day) or not knowing when the day would come.
Myself and my co-workers called ourselves family, for we had years working together. We were accustomed to having lunch or breakfast together, this togetherness came to an end, for we now had to produce more if the company was to succeed. But the enjoyable part of this job is when we left at 10:O,clock at nights for home, for we know that we will still have a job the next day.
