I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than a year
Pros – Even though the firm is based in New York, we do really important and visible work in the Shanghai office. It's great to know that what we do actually matters.
The firm culture is great, working hours are long but flexible.
I'm very happy with my management line, I got strong support from them and good feedback regarding my work. My colleagues are smart, and the firm organizes special events reasonable frequently.
Cons – Being so far away from the headquarters is not easy, we have to focus a lot on visibility, to get the same recognition.
Salaries after a first few years are not so great, and even though firm management is aware of this, they don't seem to take actions to fix this.
Hours can be long, especially if you have to work with New York or Montreal.
Advice to Senior Management – You should focus on keeping good talent, the current strategy is not going to work.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
