    Pros

    They hire some of the most intelligent professionals in the industry. The learning potential is massive, turn over is not very high and employees are loyal. This is a fantastic company to work for.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons other than typical company politics.

    The financial industry is going through a tough time and certainly this company is not immune to the industry risks that are present.

    Pros

    Learned a ton, various experiences, various industries.

    Cons

    Got coffee all the time

    Advice to Management

    Managers at MSSB, i.e. not the people who actually gain clients and service them, are pretty incompetent and not respected all that much
