    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Premier investment company. You will get some good experience although the approach is much more segmented. This allows management to plug and play people instead of developing a more broad knowledged individual. This is also why people leave the firm- lack of training and a dead end job.

    Cons

    The company has changed alot over the years- you feel like a number. They don't value effort any more- it's about dollars and sense even if that means putting people in seats that don't know what they are doing to save 20k a head. Sad but that is what the firm has come to. Poor leadership from the top- manage by fear not by what you can accomplish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have brought this company to it's knees by the poor approach to it's workers. Yeah there will always be people that want to work at Morgan Stanley- you can get great experience and there are still some good people working there. I would say the average stay of a person who works at Morgan probably went from 10 plus years to under 5.
