    I worked at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people that truly want to help you in any way they can. Substantial support from affiliate organizations and wholesalers (i.e. insurance companies, mutual funds, etc.).

    Cons

    Goals for new advisors to reach are a bit steep in the second year. In order to succeed, you must truly focus on growing fee-based business.

    Advice to Management

    Arrange partnerships with senior advisors and new FAAs. This will reduce employee turnover and increase productivity.

    I worked at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great office atmosphere and support staff. They give you plenty of freedom to advise your clients without pushing any company products.

    Cons

    Getting anything approved through management is extremely difficult and time consuming. If you need something done quick, you probably aren't going to get it approved in time.

    Advice to Management

    Just try and streamline the approval process.
