    Former Employee - Wealth Management Intern in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Morgan Stanley as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    -Team-centered, collaborative atmosphere with a good balance of hard working yet friendly, sociable colleagues.
    -Good work-life balance with steady 8-5/6 hrs. Latest could expect to be out is 7-8pm.
    -Relaxed environment yet high performance expectations. You are expected to self-manage and a high degree of employee discretion with workload/reporting.
    -Great exposure to both analytical and client facing responsibilities as an intern.
    -Entrepreneurial environment with much potential to really excel up and receive recognition by both team and institution for outstanding work.
    -Good firm culture -- mutual respect amongst employees, flat hierarchy with easy access to MD, ED and branch Management.
    -They treat their people well, not necessarily salary wise, but as a matter of paying due respect.

    Cons

    -Rigid, established management and difficult to implement improvements to archaic processes, as is custom with large institutions.
    -No formal training process, and hence new employees/interns are left out of the loop on basic things that require some training to pick up.
    -The process of hiring interns could be more efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Formalize an intern-hire process, or at least offer a path of least resistance for (well performing) interns to pursue other opportunities within the firm.
