Morgan Stanley, a good place to work - if you can handle working for a large sized company.

Associate (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Morgan Stanley

ProsSalary and benefits are excellent. Company follows through on their committment to balancing work / life issues with real incentives and suggestions. They also support additional training or education efforts with their wallet - not just lip service.

ConsEverything you might want to do - no matter how large or small - requires you know the policy, and follow it. Need a new PC? New PC arrived with 2 business days. The staff to set it up (must be union person) - 5 weeks. On the plus side - it's usually pretty easy to find the policy - very good search features on intranet.
