Pros

Your paid and you get money to buy stuff. I was happy to be working even though the job was not good and I was underpaid.

Cons

People hate there job there and are miserable and want to quit. Not a good working environment at all. Was not happy there and was underpaid.

    Pros

    access to global research, products and excellent name recognition.

    Cons

    favoritism towards newcomers and large teams, culture of recruiting and not supporting current employees, very large organization dealing with merger of two cultures and management shake ups.

    Advice to Management

    keep cashing in your stock options while you are still around.

  2. Crowded with less than stellar performers

    Pros

    Flexible 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.

    Cons

    tough 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.
