    I worked at Morgan Stanley

    Pros

    Relative good work/life balance
    Various training programs
    Very skilled people around (but many have left)

    Cons

    Cost cutting is too serious (no food, no drinks)
    Compensation is below market (HR only mentions the bonus could be unlimited, but did not warn that it could be 0)
    Limited growing potential (they want to only hire cheap people, not talented people)
    Many of skilled people left the firm already

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of unnecessary managers

    I worked at Morgan Stanley

    Pros

    1) High Profile name recognition
    2) Better than average compensation
    3) OK technology in branches
    3) Good work/life balance

    Cons

    1) Questionable skills of regional managers
    2) Financial Advisor compensation still out of whack with reality (too much for too little work)
    3) Very little wholistic client advising
    4) Narrow product banking focus cannot compete with large commercial banks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Buy or merge with large commercial bank, spin-off unwieldy MSSB brokerage division, overhaul private banking strategy (again).
