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

Pros

The hardworking and welcoming staff made the office culture and overall environment a great place to work. Any and all questions I had were welcomed and thoroughly answered, and the staff as well as management team made accommodations to ensure I received full course credit for the work I did.

Cons

I truly cannot think of a negative aspect as the experience I had was extremely educational and rewarding.

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

    Pros

    The people were really friendly and nice, and the work environment was overall very friendly and light. It's a small branch on 52nd street so it is easy to meet people and make a lot of connections.

    Cons

    Nowhere to really grow if you want to seek other opportunities within the branch. You can only go so far in Wealth Management. If you are unsure about the business, you should try exploring other opportunities.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Ability to work independently
    - Paid licensing and training
    - Unlimited resources
    - Great opportunity for those with many connections or family money

    Cons

    - Very short time frame to build business before being let go
    - No administrative support
    - No onsite "coach" or training person
    - Company is only interested in very large accounts. This can be tough for someone starting out in the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Need administrative support for people in training
    - Need "sales manager" to help develop new business and ideas
    - Need budget for business development
