Very unhappy at MSSB in Consulting Group - no recognition, no pay, no opportunities to advance

Assistant Vice President (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney

ProsName of Morgan Stanley looks good on resume other than that has not been as good as had originally imagined

ConsCompensation is lower than every other firm anywhere, continue to hire MD's and place people in non-revenue generating roles and cut comp of people actually doing the work

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your compensation in line with the street, stop hiring consultants and ex-Mckinsey people to "manage", compensate the people you want to keep, have a vision for where you want to take the business and figure out which people will help you get there

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

They offer a Licensing Program, but there is NO TRAINING, the New Jersey training deal is a farce.

Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
Overland Park, KS

I worked at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney


Pros: MSSB has tremendous products, except lending. Good platforms . Lots… Cons: No one cares to help on anything. The coaching program is not good. Really worthless training by a bunch of arrogant New Yorkers. Old time… Advice to Senior Management: Hire real managers, not just salesmen who think they are managers. DO NOT have producing managers. Know peoples names, introduce new people and help them… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
