I worked at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney full-time

Pros

Knowledgeable collegues, upper management made efforts to keep employees aware of what was going on in the company, some opportunities for employees with initiative, overall a good learning experience.

Cons

What upper management would say didn't always match what was reported in the news and created some suspicion about what they were saying. Integrations for past mergers and joint ventures took a long time and created operational inefficiencies. Compared to other work environments, didn't feel movement between groups was promoted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote transfers between groups. Foster an environment that retains quality employees by being willing to offer new opportunities for them. Be more open to employees about how the company is really doing.
