    Pros

    Excellent management team is still in place in the Boston office, which keeps the values in place of the Smith Barney culture, which then became Morgan Stanley in mid 2012.

    Cons

    The computer systems, which were put in place by Morgan Stanley as a result of the merger in mid 2012 are in need of being restored to prior Smith Barney elegance and efficiency

    Advice to Management

    Senior management in NYC should listen to the "troops" in the field, and reconstruct the computer system that was in place on the Smith Barney side..
