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

Pros

Great exposure to the myriad of Corporate bureaucracy, and red tape which makes a large corporation inefficient. Very well respected name, based on their past laurels, acquisitions, and antiquated brand.

Cons

The Corporation is so large, that in IT, it sometimes takes days to get the right people responsible for specific data areas. Ridiculous amount of processes and procedures which keep changing, in hopes that they may possibly be compliant with governmental regulation, and oversight. Very poor long-term employment prospects, as outsourcing, and onshore consulting companies is the current employment/labor model, as it is easy to release them when a routine corporate staffing re-alignment (lay-off) is scheduled. There were over 3 of these in phases in 2014 (I'm writing this mid-July 2014).

Advice to Management

Think Long-term, Grow slower, and ensure that the systems created are well-understood, and that there are competent staff to suppor tthem.
