Great staff but always under pressure
Opersations (Current Employee) –  South Dublin, County Dublin3 December 2018
Similar to all transfer agencies, there is too much work for too little staff. The staff are great and try their best but management never says no to client requests no matter what is already in progress.
Pros
Great staff
Cons
Relentless pressure to take on more work

STAFF ACCOUNTANT II (Former Employee) –  Kilkenny10 September 2018
Good environment to work in, management really try to promote a strong work life balance. There's a strong sense of team and unity across the company but from what I've heard from other offices this is strongest in the Kilkenny offices and less so amongst the other offices.
Pros
friendly atmosphere, room to grow
Cons
poor salary, high staff turnover rate

Helpful Team Environment
Fund Accountant (Former Employee) –  Dublin30 August 2018
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
Cons
Mandatory overtime, not paid for working through lunch

Management and training are none
Portfolio Administrator in the area of Custody (Current Employee) –  Kilkenny Town, County Kilkenny18 July 2018
At the beginning I was OK with working on my own initiative but
after a while I realised that there was very little job specific training
and that management wasn't accountable for my development. Managemnet is a joke; they know how to enjoy the benefits of flex work which mainly applies to them and do as little as possible to get
involved with their teams.
Pros
free coffee
Cons
Management, training, salary, well being

Awful environment, no training , no progression
Fund Accountant (Former Employee) –  Naas, County Kildare5 July 2018
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!
Pros
Free parking, location
Cons
Long hours, awful atmosphere, poor wages, lack of training and career progressional

Horrible & unwelcoming environment
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Kilkenny21 March 2018
Horrible work environment,Stinking management attitudes . Old school management style , managers not whilling to embrace change and are oppressive .Outdated systems and the management don’t seem to develop great work structures for some teams, ( some managers are clueless and always & when things are not going right,they pull a blame on weak team members ). There is a bullying element &
Favoritism for some team members . If the manager is not in favor of you. Chances of getting promotions are zilch.
Pros
The terrible experience outweighs the good. The environment is not an asheap.
Cons
Worst Financial service company to work for, unhappy environment

Fund Accounting Manager (Former Employee) –  Dublin15 January 2018
Little rewards, work life balance is very hard to attain in some teams. There are little opportunities to progress. Communication from management was little and far between.

Good starting point
Fund Accountant (A1) (Current Employee) –  Dublin7 December 2017
State Street is a good starting point for a career there is a lot you can learn here if you put the effort in. There is a good social life but that really all depends on your team.

It's tough to know where you stand within the team/company as management don't really inform you. So tough to chase a promotion if you don't know what you need to do to get it.
Pros
Great canteen, Not a lot of overtime, Office is nice, pension, health care option
Cons
Low starting pay, No idea where you stand with management

A place to start your career
Assocaiate 2 (Former Employee) –  Dublin27 September 2017
I started in State Street as an A2 and quickly found that the work-life balance leans heavily towards work. The roles are end to end so if you are looking to learn about the industry and don't mind psi overtime then it's a great place to start your career in fund administration. There are opportunities to cross train and move up once you gin some experience however you will be expected to work unsociable hours at times without notice so be prepared for this. Management are keen to help with advancement and are generally experienced. The most enjoyable par of the job is the people.
Pros
Experienced people
Cons
Long hours
