    Current Employee - Investment Banking Analyst in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Investment Banking Analyst in New York, NY

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley

    Pros

    In short, great pay, great colleagues, great internal and external opportunities, great name brand recognition, relatively few strong and difficult personalities (relative to other banks on Wall Street).

    Morgan Stanley has demonstrated time and time again a truly differentiated culture that empowers employees to succeed and to get paid well for their efforts. As an analyst, there is no better investment bank to work for than Morgan Stanley.

    Cons

    Unpredictable hours, long hours, sometimes subordinates are forgotten (when credit is given)

    The standard issues with being an analyst at a bulge-bracket bank - working into the early morning on transactions, needing to break previously scheduled appointments, or generally having a difficult time balancing work and life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on ensuring worklife balance for investment banking employees

    I worked at Morgan Stanley

    Pros

    At Morgan Stanley, I am surrounded by the brightest minds in the banking industry. There is a tremendous culture focused on first-rate client service, which is achieved by hiring and developing talented people that share an enthusiastic and collaborative vision and drive. Compensation is linked to personal, group, and firm performance, which encourages each person to perform at his or her highest potential. Feedback from colleagues is thoughtful, and often informal. Senior management does a great job of training junior people in the business of investment banking and of sharing strategic information about the issues and opportunities facing the group and bank.

    Cons

    The largest downside of working at any investment bank is the riskiness associated with employment on Wall Street. Like all investment banks, Morgan Stanley has had to lay off some of its bankers to keep costs reasonable in the face of an economic downturn.
