    I worked at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Education--paid by the company
    Potiential to make lots of money (If that's what floats your boat)

    Cons

    You might not make lots of money.
    If you get out early--to work in a BANK for instance--they will sue you--and probably win
    You might make a mistake that could cost you $$ or your license

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit this job. Life is too short to spend it ripping people off.

    I worked at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was an employee of Citi Smith Barney from 2007 - 2010. The company was willing to invest in growing advisors and did their best to provide them with additional support.

    Cons

    Even back in 2007, it was clear that the company was focusing on their million dollar producers. Those that didn't appear to have the growth potentional were encouraged to consolidate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, I think management is taking the right approach to changing the corporate structure.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
