I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great online classes and opportunity to learn. Lots of mobility opportunities, especially if you want to go abroad. People are nice.

Cons

Your reviews mean nothing. Management will let good people leave if they think they can save money by hiring someone junior. Many people learn and move on. Although management preaches about one on ones and career development, it is non existent. No work life balance.

Advice to Management

If you keep some good people you can have something great. Stop training people up and letting them go to the competition. Only people who care about town halls are managers trying for their next promotion.

    I worked at Morgan Stanley (More than a year)

    Pros

    good resources good research reputation. along w/ Goldman, MS is an 800 lb gorilla in the field.

    Cons

    no real employee development program for the advisors. No patience to let FA's develop a book of business. At the time of my employment, excessive # of employees, due to MS / Smith Barney merger. Back biting and scrambling for positions as they shrank in size.

    Advice to Management

    take a longer term look at employee development


  2. no loyalty
