I worked at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney as an intern (less than an 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.

    Pros

    prestige, autonomy, resources, braintrust talent, self-study training materials.

    Cons

    lost-in-the-80's sales culture, care-less regional mgmt., no tolerance for underperformance,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your business model is to gain the assets of all your FAA's contacts at the expense of the FAA's short tenure with you. Don't you think this reputation already preceed's your recruitment efforts?
