Back office under appreciated

Associate (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsBulge 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.

ConsBack 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I worked at Morgan Stanley as an intern for less than a year


    Pros: -Looks good on your resume Cons: -Prospecting is just a fancy way of cold calling for 4 hours straight. -FA's don't… Advice to Senior Management: Add some value to the so called "internship". No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
