No opinion of CEO

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 Management

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