Former Employee - Financial Advisor Associate in Chicago, IL
Former Employee - Financial Advisor Associate in Chicago, IL

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

Pros

Great benefits
Autonomy
Friendly co-workers
Generous vacation policy

Cons

Training 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.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management attracts some really great talent but often doesn't work at retaining that talent. The Financial Advisor program is a waste of everyone's time.

    Current Employee - Performance Analyst in New York, NY

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    As a performance engineer, I work with a lot of various teams and technologies. Everyone is for the most part very cooperative when you need help learning a technology. Also great ways to move within the company.

    Cons

    The compensation and year-end raises are pretty sad. They don't take your performance into considering at all, and will tell you to your face that performance doesn't matter.
