Be careful going on maternity leave, I'm a top performer, but after coming back from mat leave I felt like my career had taken a huge hit and I had to prove myself all over again.

    They just upped it to 16 weeks, which is incredible, one of their best benefits, but taking it will hurt you.

    There are work from home opportunities, but you're still expected to be tethered to your desk. They care a lot about the specific times you're at your desk and less about what you've gotten done.

There is limited room for growth and management is poor. Not in terms of treating women differently than men, but in general.

I think most personality thpes can find a place here, but you might have to do some searching along the career "lattice," as State Street likes to call it.

This was a fine place to get experience, however it was not the best for a career. The pay was low, the hours long, and not a good company culture.

It's up to your direct manager. Compensation is not great.

Great culture to put in the work and climb the ladder. Recognizes issues with diversity (gender included) and is taking steps towards improvement.

I've worked here for 4 years and think it's a really good place for a working mom who wants flexibility. Yes I think I could get paid more if I worked somewhere else potentially but the salary is still good for accounting role and has given me the flexibility to work from home 100% which as a new mom, has made my life much easier by avoiding traffic and extra drive time. They really value flexible work arrangements in their employees and are able to provide as long as good employee who they trust and still gets work done! It also makes it easier to leave right at 530pm to pick up baby. I'm willing to sign on at night during busier periods but I wait until after baby is asleep. The offices have nice pump rooms for nursing mothers. There is a free back up child care policy (20 days!) as well that I have yet to use but is a great benefit. Vacation policy is fair (20 days plus 3 personal days at senior associate and above level plus 9 observed holidays). They also have good coverage for IVF and infertility ( through the high deductible plan at least). The mentoring/move up options are available but you really have to be your own advocate if you want increased responsibility or experience but being global, there are plenty of opportunities depending on location or willingness to move. I didn't think at first that I would stay as long but as a new mom, I'm happy I did!

    Depends on level, I don't think associates are paid as well but if you stick around and move up, you get greater flexibility and higher pay along with good corporate policies for maternity leave and flex work which is perfect for a new mom.

Boston is pale, male and stale, the boys still try to do everything the old school way. There is a desire to change with some of the top of the house but within the executive levels there continues to be a lot of outdated approaches. Generally I beleive that women are seen as important, and diversity is a common discussion item; however I don't see the commitment to advance women into leadership positions.
