    I have been working at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a meritocracy where talent and harwork are rewarded. There are scores of mobility opportiunities and career development offerings. Diversity is sinceerely embraced here. Nothing feels forced. I especially appreciate their commitment to women and the developement of their careers.

    Cons

    Compensation is fair, but certainly not on a par with Goldman Sachs. But on the plus side, you may actually have a life while working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney

    Pros

    Management Team is good and pay is fair. I have nothing to complain about.

    Cons

    Technology and systems are lagging behind relative to other firms. Running XP and using Office 2003 are just a couple of examples.

    The internal website could also use a re-design with a lot of information being hard to find.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The antiquated software is a real hindrance to our productivity. Please increase the speed of deploying the new integrated platform.
