I have been working at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney full-time (less than an year)

Pros

They sponsor you to get licensed immediately, there are locations nationwide and internationally so it's good for someone like me who may not plan on living in NYC forever.

Cons

In branches, job opportunities are limited. Your only options are Financial Advisor, Client Service Associate, and Operations. There are several opportunities in Morgan Stanley itself though, so this isn't much of a con.

    I worked at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney full-time (more than an 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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
