"State Street is a very inclusive company. They support Black Lives Matter, they support and sponsor Pride, they have a whole networking system dedicated to women empowerment and development, you can join Bible Club, celebrate Diwali etc. The only downside is there is a big men’s club type presence. The Boston bro’s are emphasized in finance, so be sure to find a support system there. You have to have a thick skin to get ahead, just remember to be the one to help other women make their way up the ladder once you get your chance. Don’t make it hard for them, they are not your competition, they are your ally. "

"There are a lot of job opportunities when the market is doing well and it is easy to transfer after one year. The work from home flexibility is great, but your hours will still be long since we are understaffed. When the market is down the company will implement a hiring freeze, making it difficult to change jobs, get hired, or get promoted/salary increases. "

"Upward mobility extremely difficult. Come in at the level you want, don't expect hard work being rewarded. Many people in management positions based on tenure and not management skills."

"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."

"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"

"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. "
"Women are not given promotion opportunities or compensation equally."
"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!"
"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."
"The company is supportive of strong women and talent wherever it is found."
"I have worked here for 8 years. Over time the environment has changed greatly. It's a cutthroat environment the higher up you are. This is mainly the result of cutbacks and not replacing laid off employees. I find women seem to frequently not get along and to go after each other frequently. Not all, but a high percentage. There are great benefits offered but if flexibility is not what you are looking for I would suggest a different company since the pay is low and potential for growth is also low."
