Meritocracy? More like mediocracy

Current Employee - Operations Associate in New York, NY
Current Employee - Operations Associate in New York, NY

I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time

Pros

The few high performers that you do come across are truly exceptionally

Cons

Meritocracy is not a concept that management is familiar with. Any employee, regardless of talent or performance, working on "pet" initiatives, is considered to be valuable asset. Promotion is next to impossible if you're not in the "right" roles. Internal mobility is a joke because you cannot apply for the next level up - how does that encourage professional growth within a firm? If you are looking to kill your ambitions, apply now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think of ways to keep and develop your high performers, unless the long term plan is to end up with a bigger mediocre majority that talks more than works.

    Cons

    No real advancement opportunities

    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.
