I have been working at Morgan Stanley

Pros

MS provides world class training in financial services, especially to those just coming out of college, provided you're willing to work hard and build your network while here. You'll be spending a lot of time at work, so most managers are lax about employees taking a lunch(especially since there is no cafeteria). Baltimore can be a great city to live in, given that you don't venture too far from the water. Overall, a great place to work, with great, knowledgable people.

Cons

They tend to like to give people more responsibility without giving them corresponding salary increases. Since there is no real sense of if and when bonuses will be paid, some people do the bare minimum to keep their job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I know you're trying to reduce expenses, but at some point you need to pay your talented people, or they will continue to leave.

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

    Pros

    pay is very competitive and work-life balance was reasonable for the role. Solid opportunities to advance as well.

    Cons

    some late nights and long weeks and most other generic issues common of larger, bureaucratic organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it would vastly improve quality of life to allow more work-from-home options to employees who are not client facing.
