Great company, mostly smart people, not-so-great pay.

I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Some of the smartest and hardest working people in the industry.

Cons

The pay has been pretty low since the financial crisis when compared to competitors like Barclays, who's just across the street.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your people across the firm (not just the MDs) better!

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Morgan Stanley went through some tough times during the financial crisis, as did the rest of the industry. With the joint venture behind them it really feels like the company is gaining momentum and heading in a positive direction. The work environment is positive and the people are great.

    Cons

    Morgan Stanley might pay on the lower end (not really sure because I am just relying on hearsay). People always tell me I would be making more money if I left the firm but in my experience the grass is always greener on the other side.
