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
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.
Management, training, salary, well being
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!
Free parking, location
Long hours, awful atmosphere, poor wages, lack of training and career progressional
High turnover rate, poor pay for new joiners and some managers act in their own best interests. Definitely a wide range of personal experiences possible there though as a lot of people dont leave.
People working there
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Outdated systems and the management don’t seem to develop great work structures for some teams, ( some managers are clueless and always & when things are not going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.
The terrible experience outweighs the good. The environment is not an asheap.
Worst Financial service company to work for, unhappy environment
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at State Street?
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.
Great canteen, Not a lot of overtime, Office is nice, pension, health care option
Low starting pay, No idea where you stand with management
Good place to work specifically for new people who is interested to build up career in this industry as they have extensive number of training . Good restaurant for staffs.
Good training, opportunity for learning
work may be autonomous some times depends on the team
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.
Overall, if you work hard and show you can add value you will do well. I work in the office on Sir John Rogerson's Quay and really enjoy it. The hardest part of the job sometimes is the pressure to turn around items last minute and the best part is the people I get to work with. The culture is very good - there's a big focus on inclusiveness and also on work life balance. They still need to do a bit of work on the work life balance aspect but that's partly down to the industry we're in I think! If you don't ask you won't get in State Street. All in all, I'm not going to leave any time soon.
subsidised canteen, good pay, great colleagues
The workplace was extremely poor as many new starts weren't integrated into the team but just given their tasks and got on with it. Do not think there is any sense of a team environment in the business and this could be partly due to the management. Also there is a high staff turnover which shows the job satisfaction levels.
The job is the same every single day and lack of management expertise to try and ethuse workers through the daily grind. No encouragement or thank you on a job well done or helping others out. Selfish mentality in the work place with everyone looking ot shift blame. On the plus side it is ocated near town and transport is accesible. There is a lack of enthusiasm in the work place and no drive for advancement.
Casual Dress, food is inexpensive
Poor moral, Lack of communication, No consistency
