I worked at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Good introduction to the world of finance if you have little to no experience.

Cons

The job depends a lot on who you are assigned to. I had too little work and it was limited to mostly filing or helping the brokers use their computers. Other brokers took a little more time teaching their interns.

It's luck of the draw for who your are assigned to. When I was there they offered the interns a choice of doing a little bit of everything or specializing in operations or executive. The interns who choose the latter two were miserable and had little to know face to face time with anyone who could advance their career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make more of curriculum for the interns, we had too little work to do.

    I worked at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Well known firm so the big name will look good on a resume. There is a decent amount of business conducted. My boss was young and more lenient.

    Cons

    Not the friendliest environment. Need younger talent. Managers are so bent on getting clients it is a bit excessive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could hire better talent. Many of the older people were cold. A new wave of employees would do them wonders.
