Crowded with less than stellar performers

Vice President Technology (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsFlexible work arrangement, friendly environment, no late hours, understanding management, nice life-work balance, culturally the company is pretty well establish and the clashes between legacy Citi and Morgan personnel are not as bad as described.

Constough to get promoted, less than stellar co-workers, protected classes feel invincible, compensation is too aligned to the company and unit's performance and not necessarily to the individual's performance. Benefits are not the greatest, especially health insurance options. They make even people who have no access to materially non-public information trade via the Morgan Stanley system which is expensive and inflexible.

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