Not a Place To Start Your Career

Financial Advisor Associate (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat benefits
Autonomy
Friendly co-workers
Generous vacation policy

ConsTraining program for new FA's is weak at best
No support after you're licensed.
Very hard to get a book of business going.
Probably a great place to end up after you've built a book of business elsewhere.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
