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 ManagementAdvice

You should focus on keeping good talent, the current strategy is not going to work.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1) Lead the team from India and own the project.
    2) Directly talk with the business to get requirements and drive yourself
    3) Excellent work
    4) Working with world-class infrastructure

    Cons

    1) Work life balance is little sqewed. The person needs to learn to say no.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that the work life balance is propgated to the team in India. Most of the time it is assumed that India team will not see their evenings

    Good learning, in the first couple of years. Kind of stagnates after that.
