    I have been working at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good resources, freedom and flexibility on how to run your business, very attractive incentive comp plans and bonuses

    Cons

    Botched integration, technology issues, policies and procedures went from easy to get things done (Old Smith Barney policies) to very hard to get the easiest thing done (Morgan Stanley policies). They are working on fixing these issues as quickly as possible but for now it hinders productivity.
