Are any layoffs coming soon? I am hopeful, I doubt it though since the entire bank is chronically understaffed. I’ve gotten so sick of the huge workloads, discrimination, finger pointing and blatant lack of respect state has for the people working... — read more
Mine started with 7 people on the team. There have been multiple turnovers and so far this year one person has quit and there are two pending resignations. I now have five employees. Two came on recently. It's the same vicious cycle every... — read more
Or are people who are unvaccinated still WFH?
I’m not a newbie at State Street, nor is this my first work experience. Despite all my previous experience, lately I can barely cope with a huge amount of work. It really isn’t a job for one person. And then some advise me that I should work... — read more
My friend works here as a contractor. It may not be the right place to ask that question, but I would like to know if anyone knows what's the possibility is of a contractor being hired as a permanent employee? I don't know of any such case, but maybe... — read more
Does anyone know if state street has or is planning to actually enforce these? I know they said you need to have a booster now in order to get in the offices-in North America at least, and that you need to be in the office if that is your role but I... — read more
Or is there no need due to increased attrition?
Just leave there. I left two years ago and have a new career now. It is not worth all the complaining, they do what they do. It will never change. We were told our replacements make 4-5 grand a year for the jobs we trained them on. And they do not... — read more
Given that the workload is significantly higher and some even complain that they are now doing a triple workload, I wonder how you manage to get everything done? After my colleague left, I got only a part of his job and honestly, I barely manage to... — read more
Anyone know when bonuses payout for SSB and CRD? Hoping to receive my bonus then resign
Anyone want to start a union? We need client service and operations. What are your thoughts? key individuals will do.
I was told it is 60 days for VP and 90 days for AVP and below. Is this true? Can someone clarify or point me where I can find the official information.
Did any current BBHers who were former SSB employees attend the employee career meeting on 2/16? How much of it was hot air? I used to work at BNY and have nothing but a bad opinion of employees at SSB. I'd love to hear opinions, career trajectories... — read more
Had more people reach out today to confide in me they are upset about end of year and the lack of recognition STT gives and are now also leaving. Everywhere I look teams are severely understaffed, some comments I've heard over the past week: 'this... — read more
Be sure to shut off the lights Don’t want to waste energy. It’s pretty much a done deal. I’ve ridden on the ship ten years and each time I think it will improve it actually gets worse. I can’t get to shore off this sinking clipper fast enough... — read more
It’s real. They know they are in trouble.
Any job out there that will Hurd STT employees? I am trying desperately to get a new job. I have the skills credentials and experience. There’s jobs out there but no bites. Are they ghost jobs for pretend?
It’s non stop all day just push push push I can’t take it anymore I can’t find any job out there either. I have the credentials and skills Is anyone gearing any interviews? It’s as if I’m invisible.
So STT will be taken over by TCS and interns according to the townhall meeting? Then why just move STT to Indian? There are plenty of banks here can take over the STT business in US.
I would try to negotiate my raise if I thought that there is a 1% chance to negotiate successfully or not be fired soon after negotiating. However, if I don't get a better job soon, I'll try, whatever happens. Is there anyone here who has managed... — read more
Yep.. As expected my group got a big fat zero for 2022. Zero raises for the past 5 years and as a result i am starting to see few farewell emails from my peers in other groups. Seriously, most of us that have stayed on took on more work and grind... — read more
I left a while back. Right around that time some McKinsey ghouls were in, trying to get everyone to come up with "efficiency" ideas. Just wondering how'd that go?
Maybe there used to be some fairness here, but it's long gone. Wrong people are being promoted, while others are not even clear on what's the right path to get promotion. People put in extra effort and the only thing they get in return is more... — read more
I’m very focused on getting promoted. I'm doing the best I can. On the other hand, there are many who tell me that maybe it's best to give up on that idea because even if I manage to get promoted, I will just get more work and nothing more. I find it... — read more
I am seeing this is happing after spending long time training the offshore team. But does this means STT is violating American first labor policy? How to file a complaint to labor department?
Will state street give out such raises? A 2% raise won’t do much, but getting 15-25% will help with inflation.
Some of the titles make sense other seem to be created . The old motto " I keep give you a raise but I can give you a title Senior Vice President Vice President Assistance Vice President ??? Officer ?????? Then a newly created... — read more
I’ve been trying all these years to be as good of an employee as possible but I’ve gotten sick and tired of everything here. I wouldn’t want to leave without package and I’d love to leave as soon as possible. I want to be on the list of next layoffs... — read more
I've worked for a number of investment firms and I can tell you this is by far the most chaotic place of them all. Considering the lack of streamlined processes, I sometimes wonder how anybody gets anything done. Add to that poor management and the... — read more
My bet is there are deep cuts in layoffs. I’d say 20-25%. And I’m thinking the stock market collapse takes us into a depression for at least 10 years.
Will be eaten away by inflation, higher taxes across the board on everything. Basically, you will have worked you entire life and pretty much have nothing to show for it. Even that 2.3 million dollar straight front colonial in the “it” town won’t... — read more
I noticed some people only stay in a role for 1-2 years and then change jobs. Is this normal at SS?
The thing that bothers me the most at State Street is that this place is too political. Has it always been that way or...?
Anyone has information on STT year 2022 layoff plan? Does STT has a early retirement program for those 55+?
Since it is obvious that State Street is very worried about employees being protected from the virus, my only hope is that State Street will soon start taking care of other things that bother employees. For example, other stress-related illnesses... — read more
Does it seem to you that this company has become inclusive for everyone except for people who are great at what they do, who have knowledge and skillset? It seems to me that it has never been more undesirable to have skills than it is here now. No... — read more
I came to State Street from a company that was not a competitor, and now I have received a very tempting offer from direct competitors. I talked to people who also crossed over to competitors and they all tell me that there was something very... — read more
I got sick badly and applied to use some of my sick leave left. But my manager in STT rejected my request. What should I do?
I do not believe that in the end many people will leave because of the vaccine mandate, but I think that their number will not be small. I'm just wondering if this company has a plan on how to attract replacements, since it's no longer a very... — read more
