Good working experience

Manager (Current Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe firm encourages very open communication and there is lateral hierarchy that even the most junior person can speak up to the senior management

ConsIt is unfortunate that in the past couple of years the investment banking is under attack and it has put tremendous pressure on the compensation. A lot of people has been underpaid as a result of this.

Advice to Senior ManagementGood luck to senior management, it is a tough environment out there

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
