I have watched this bank improve over the last four years as Gorman transforms it into an Asset Management firm.

I have been working at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Morgan Stanley is improving with each quarter. If you want to do Asset Management, whether it be Private Wealth Management or Institutional, this is the place to do it.

Cons

It's hard to get recognized at a big firm. Building your networks takes considerable time and energy.

    Pros

    This is a meritocracy where talent and harwork are rewarded. There are scores of mobility opportiunities and career development offerings. Diversity is sinceerely embraced here. Nothing feels forced. I especially appreciate their commitment to women and the developement of their careers.

    Cons

    Compensation is fair, but certainly not on a par with Goldman Sachs. But on the plus side, you may actually have a life while working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to gain IT experience. The company will always be in the mainstream because it is open to changes as demanded by the evolving business environment.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, change means diversity and job insecurity as a full time employee. There are too many consultants coming in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT people don't need constant anti-money laundering, anti-insider trading trainings, etc... Reminders may be enough.
