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

    I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time for 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.
