    Pros

    The brand name is still great. You work with some of the smartest people. Great exposures to the "financial world".

    Cons

    The culture is absolutely terrible. MS only looks for the stars. If you can handle the fact that 1/3 of your colleagues are either laid off or quit within a year, this is the place for you. The benefits have become less competitive with other banks.

    Advice to Management

    No need to comment on the politics.. MS is known to have terrible management and it's absolutely true. No clarity, a lot of ass-kissing. This is typical.

    Pros

    Fixed pay is decent compared to other hedge funds in Hong Kong. Mandate of the fund is quite broad. Their funding is quite stable, so no fear of redemptions.

    Cons

    Senior management creates a very volatile working environment. Zero training. No clarity on career paths or skill development.
