I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great work/life balance
Laid back
Place you can just go in and do your job
Not too much micro managing going on

Cons

No real advancement opportunities
Management does not communicate effectively w/ employees in regards to feedback
Does not actively participate in recruiting best talent - uses temp agency to find candidates
Does not value knowledge, or coaching & developing analysts

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create an environment where talent is developed and there is a clearer roadmap for Analysts.
Do better job at keeping your word and not just use employees as a pawn or means to an end.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    very smart people, good culture, very strong brand, anyone will take your call because you are Morgan Stanley, in the middle of interesting deals so you get to see a lot of action

    Cons

    deferred comp getting crazier and crazier, balance sheet not big enough to compete with the big banks, funding costs not competitive for lending or derivatives, and cutting back on sales and trading

    Pros

    able to work from home

    Cons

    I was told there was plenty of work for me to do as the office got smaller and smaller, and then i get the ax. No truth in management. No loyalty. Bad compensation.

    work is 50 - 60 hours a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell the truth and be honest. dont wait until review times to show the door.
