    I worked at Morgan Stanley

    Pros

    Good money, nice people, opportunity to advance. Office environment friendly in general.

    Cons

    Too much nepotism and legalism with hiring. They told me I needed a finance major to get hired full time, but then they hired on their psychology-major daughters and nieces who were college interns there. They wouldn't look at experience on someone's resume, only the major and who you were.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and promote based on merit, not nepotism. Just because someone is related to you doesn't mean they are competent. Just because someone didn't major in a subject when they were 18 doesn't mean they can't do the work.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley

    Pros

    The only reason to work at firm like this is to know that you have a job in these trying times. The benefits are great but you need them because with hours you work getting sick will become the norm.

    Cons

    You will sacrifice you personal life, family time, outside interests, and possibly your health working long stressful hours in this environment. This may not seem like much but if once in you realize that you are not a "culture" fit you may really hate it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage work life balance especially since the big money years are over. We as employees need to be compensated with something.
