The environment at State Street remains a boy's playland, especially around the trading floors, which isn't bad on its own, but there is a resistance to feminine ways of working and women are often trying to embody masculine personality traits to be heard and respected.

    Maybe. While State Street has failed women from a historical influence of systematic discrimination, the company is actively implementing strategies to better serve its female employees and attract a more diverse entry of employees, so it's a work in progress.

I work 8am to 5pm and have made a point to stick to this schedule and set boundaries. However, I see people working many more hours without any benefit to their career advancement

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.

    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.

    12 paid / unpaid

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

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.
