I have been working at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney

Pros

The ultimate opportunity to create your own destiny and have no limit as to how much you will work and how much you will earn!

Cons

You had better be extrememly self motivating. Nobody really cares what you do, because you are building your own business and the proof is in the pudding.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I could not be happier with the leadership of the firm. Top notch people are in this industry and it is apparent from the top down why.

    Pros

    A large company, with an intimate feel, can teach you a lot about asset allocation and wealth management. The internship post I had allowed me to be directly involved with clients and solving everyday problems.

    Cons

    I would definitely say its still a competitive place to work in. It gets incredibly busy and people are not okay with excuses, when something is asked to be done it is to be done. That's true of any industry, but morgan stanly does demand excellence

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find better ways of evaluating employee performance. A lot of downtime for employees leads to high payroll costs that relate to a smaller increase in revenue.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney

    Pros

    If you want to learn self-reliance, to be challenged and finding your own way this is it.

    Cons

    Low pay for the most part. When John Mack cut everyone's salary to save the company a few years ago, he never gave it back even after Morgan Stanley was doing very well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Public opinion is against the industry. If the public only knew that those at the top of the company make the highest incomes while those at the bottom working 10h days, are paid at the lower end of their pay scale.
