State Street Employee Review
Good place to start and gain experience
My team was a good group. But the workload and the lack of more hires make the work life balance very difficult. There is no culture as most of the big companies. The experience overall will depend of how you feel towards extra hours and time management. Also the manager will play a key factor. I was lucky to have great people as managers and I always get along with my team members, but even them will have the same comments not enough resources for the amount of workload, they mention is due to the lack of experience professionals on the market. In overall is a good place to start but after few years if you want to promote and get more experience is good to move either around the company or somewhere else.

Lack of employees for the workload
As an intern it was a great experience, however the wage given for an intern does not suit the city of work, given that the rent in dublin is so high right now. Typically work was 90% excel and in house software with the remainder spent replying to emails to/from clients. Working with teams is essential and is good for developing such skills
Mandatory overtime, not paid for working through lunch
Awful atmosphere and environment to work in - You could hear a pin drop. Management have no idea how to manage staff but actual knowledge of their job is good purely because most people seem to have got stuck in a rut in the same place due to good location for them for schools etc so experience is there for staff that have stuck around that long. Other than that there is little to no training given to new starters, it's very much a sink or swim atmosphere and each to their own. I really wouldn't recommend to anyone, wages are poor also! Extremely long hours and overtime expected on a whim!
