    I worked at Morgan Stanley

    Pros

    This was a 10 week internship very popular among UC Davis students that I thought was a great learning experience. It combines the information from multiple classes into one fast-paced internship. Great name and knowledge on your resume and helpful in deciding if investing and finance is a direction interested in.

    Cons

    The quarter I participated was very unorganized and demanded too much of full time students in such a condensed time. Culture and people was a strange mix and not the friendliest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better organization and group leaders necessary, especially to incentivize people to continue to part 2. Start earlier in the quarter to fit the information in less rushed.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
  2. Fun, exciting, and enriching work.

    Pros

    Nerf fights
    Fun
    Lots of company perks

    Cons

    Office-like structure
    Cubicles
    Heirarchy
    Some work might be boring
    Manual labor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really. There's a lot of downtime in between joining and actually getting to work since a lot of new hires need to go through a lot of training as well as familiarize themselves with the DE used by MS

    Higher up management team were dysfunctional. Forgot how important staff and middle management were to their successes. Working 10-12 hr days for little or no recognition....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complex managers need to be real and connect with their employees and team members. COMMUNICATE!
