company with good benefits

Assistant Vice President Product Management (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney full-time for more than a year

ProsThey have decent benefits and compensation bonus.

Constoo many colleagues fighting for the same promotion. Fired many legacy Smith Barney folks. Manager wouldn't open his eyes to a huge opportunity ,despite Head of departments urge.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Tough but good potential

Financial Advisor Associate (Current Employee)

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


Pros: - Ability to work independently - Paid licensing and training - Unlimited… Cons: - Very short time frame to build business before being let go - No administrative support - No onsite "coach" or training… Advice to Senior Management: - Need administrative support for people in training - Need "sales manager"… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
