-Very quiet
-older employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cold calling does not work well enough to waste interns time on it. They could be used more efficiently by creating brochures or sitting in on Fund sales pitches

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney

    Pros

    Management Team is good and pay is fair. I have nothing to complain about.

    Cons

    Technology and systems are lagging behind relative to other firms. Running XP and using Office 2003 are just a couple of examples.

    The internal website could also use a re-design with a lot of information being hard to find.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The antiquated software is a real hindrance to our productivity. Please increase the speed of deploying the new integrated platform.

    Got coffee all the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers at MSSB, i.e. not the people who actually gain clients and service them, are pretty incompetent and not respected all that much
