Bloomberg has an interview with the top guy. Cuts will be at the bank not CRD.
State Street truly is a rotten company to work for. Its mainframe system harks back to the 70s and its Management teams stink as populated by yes men. If you are looking for a job and have 2 underway pick the other one than State Street. If you... read more

What's the latest on layoffs? Lately I've been feeling like everything is too quiet, like calm before a major storm. I could just be paranoid, but after all the talk about possible additional restructuring I've been in a constant anticipation mode... read more
In certain teams about 50% of employees accepted the (not very good) offer and will leave. No surprise when you look at the completely incompetent management layer. Easy decision! Take the money and run!
Here’s what SSB’s 2017 Annual Report says about restructuring: In connection with Beacon, we announced in 2016 that we expected: (i) to incur aggregate pre-tax restructuring charges of approximately $300 million to $400 million beginning in 2016... read more
Anyone else hear that they've put a freeze on hiring onshore workers and anyone that leaves will have their job opened in a cooresponding low cost location.
The reality on Main street is now coming home to roost on Wall Street. All this BS about a strong economy and lowest unemployment ever is 100% lies. Stock markets can easily be manipulated by stock buybacks and the Federal Reserve printing trillions... read more
Hope you're ready. No one is safe, especially top management.
What happens to jobs at State Street when the market crashes? And then of course there's your nest egg, which will disappear as well. Amazingly, practically nobody has even considered these possibilities. Well, it's time to start considering them... read more
So the narrative event arrives, which will be used to explain why the recession we're in happened and led to the market crash which is coming. Oh yes, you all believe markets can go up by double digit percentages year after year with no crash because... read more

Maybe this will bring back normalcy to finance and get rid of the stranglehold. SEC just needs to have more teeth and action why should we suffer
This company has a lot of negative energy and bad karma. People are back stabbing, vicious, self serving because it’s rotting from the top down. The culture at STT is kill or be killed. Great morale booster for the employees. (Sarc). This place needs... read more
A contractor PM in statestreet bank europe was escorted out by security today. The female MD in sales at SSB Europe refused to even sign the full notice period of 5 days. This was after he turned down a 30% pay cut ultimatum or be fired. Shocking.
Ok at this point in all my years at Stste Street just under 10 years, I have always been notified by now about a raise and/or bonus. I’m just under a year in my new team. I work long hours and do workloads far greater than the other members in my... read more
I was warned by a coworker that next round of layoffs will predominantly focus on those who satisfy rule 70, which to me sounds like a recipe for legal action against State Street. Anybody heard more about this? I'm personally in this group, so... read more
Slightly bigger bonus than last year and 2% salary increase. First increase in 3 years.
Usually I hear around now about a bonus and or a raise. And I have not. I’m getting a little nervous now. Has everyone heard? Please let me know because that would really really s--- If I don’t get anything at all
We’ll be lucky with the regular bonus and meager pay raise if we get one whopping 2% How come STT can’t give us s tax break bonus why not us? STT has benefitted tremendously with the easing of D-F and other regukations. Why so stingy?
Heard some rumours about layoffs already this year. Anyone got info

The wealth by giving a tax break bonus to their employees. What do we get? We get now less than two years for 7000 to be laid off. Cruel joke? No, harsh reality. I’m sure some very special people will be given nice five figure bonuses. Too difficult... read more
Don’t be down? Don’t be negative? If it weren’t for the tax cut coming I’d be squeaking by again. You must have a lofty salary and or a double income of each six figures. Go troll elsewhere or better yet after six months of unemployment and no job... read more

Time for new beginnings and hopes for a better year ahead. Unsure how new ceo will be. I just doubt 7000 in 2 years time can be that stealthy. Hope I’m wrong. Hope there’s a new game plan. Hope the prognostications for 7000 layoffs are recalculated... read more
They do the layoffs in a very stealth manner of laying off maybe 1 to 2 people in various sections. Hoping nobody will notice how 1,2 or 3 people have vanished. Usually the worker's network is busy calling friends in other depts to see if anyone got... read more
