    Very hierarchical (focused on job titles) with pockets of excellence (e.g. Technology Investment Banking).

    I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    One advantage of working there was the quality of the people. Since it's difficult to get into Morgan Stanley, you'll work with very smart people. Benefits are good, but pay is only good if you work in a revenue-focused role, with salaries and bonuses for other areas off significantly in recent years vs. its competitors

    Cons

    Like other Firms on Wall St., there is still a "partnership model", with a heavy focus on rank (e.g. Managing Directors are most important). Getting promoted can be very political, and involves having good timing and a strong sponsor, and is less about ability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The focus on titles, e.g. including Titles highlighted in bold in internal announcements, sends the message that this is one of the most important things the company values. Communications have become very Orwellian - good news is communicated to excess, while negative news is less often shared. Within the Technology organization, the top talent has all left for peers that pay more. The culture really deteriorated in recent years, and it's just not the same as it was in the early 2000s.
