Overall good experience

Financial Reporting (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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

ProsJob location is ideal, Management in my department is generally accommodating to schedule changes, work load is manageable, ability to wear multiple hats

ConsCareer movement can be cumbersome, additional work/responsibility does not necessarily equate to additional pay

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to management would be to provide a consistent message in communication to employees. Sometimes there mixed messages as well as inconsistencies that make employees feel an uncertainty in the direction the company is taking.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
