Like to make suggestions but the writing is on the wall, so to speak. A couple ideas would be to hold management accountable to their staff, as I have never working a company where management spends more time catering to their own manager than they do responding to the needs of their own staff. No management development program in place.

I haven't had a performance review in 1.5 years, despite proclamation of a review program that is monitored to ensure compliance. Even though I received great reviews, they were shallow and meaningless.

Long hours. Flex hours are the norm, bit in my new area we are told when to come in and when we can leave. Staff who leave are not being replaced, so more work for same pay.

The future of State Street is likely fine. The future of opportunities to work for State Street in the US are fast diminishing. Despite record earnings and a huge tax reduction ala Trump, the decision to offshore is inevitable in my and many other positions within Human Resources.
