    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can work in a distributed team (practice English).
    Depending on the team it can be quite flexible (work hours, work from home).

    Cons

    People are usually not valued by their performance, therefore "Fluctuation is normal, and there is nothing to do against it."
    MS tries to continually change contract conditions worse and worse; new hires are valued the most.

    I worked at Morgan Stanley as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    You can get experience about how such a big multinational company works. There is also a chance for English language improvement and the office environment is really nice.

    Cons

    Collegues are sometimes too far from each other, therefore communication is not always efficient (via phone, mail), and software development also little bit slowly here, because of the many policies as well.
