Featured Review

Former Employee - Registered Representative

I worked at Charles Schwab full-time for more than a year

Pros

I was able to develop a very broad base of financial planning knowledge. Wonderful career development potential.

Cons

Highly regimented day. Dealing with call center clients can be very challenging.

Current Employee - IT Associate

I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time for more than a year

Pros

Knowledgeable and respectful colleagues, exciting business, competitive compensation, learning supports, mobility program, generous RRSP matching programs and vacation package. Great place to work... and to learn about financial products.

Cons

Only cons I could think of is fast pace work environment which is pretty normal for this type of business. Promotion is slow.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work culture and promote work life balance. More vacation days after 3 years would be great. Promote internal talent to keep top talent.
