State Street Corp. will lay off 6% of its workforce, or 1,800 people, in the first quarter. Initially, the layoffs will cost the company as much as $350 million, or 51 cents to 55 cents a share, but that will then revert to $400 million in annual savings.

Most of the people being let go are middle and senior managers in North America, whose positions will be consolidated.
