I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than a year

Pros

Bulge bracket banks provide better benefits than smaller banks do, especially for the 401k. Get to work with many incredibly smart people if working with front office.

Cons

Back office functions not respected by many front office people. Firm openly talks about trying to cut costs of "non producers". Lowest pay for equivalent work among the bulge brackets.
