    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (more than an 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.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have been working here for last 2 years and it has been an enriching experience. There is lot of exposure and freedom. Its great on the resume. Morgan is the next Goldman. If you cant beat them, join them and is definitely worth the time and effort. Does pay off.

    Cons

    More accountability is required. Employees associated with 10-15+ years are too complacent of what they do. Morgan Stanley Smith Barney is going through a transformation and will need a total organization revamp.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define proper roles for all the employees and hold them accountable. A lot of gray area in the job responsibilities has to be addressed to bring more clarity.
