Featured Review

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.

Former Employee - Financial Advisor

I worked at Edward Jones full-time for more than a year

Pros

Incredible training. Supportive network of advisors. You are given every opportunity to succeed with all the right tools. I was never turned away from another advisor when I needed help.

Cons

Perhaps more emphasis on sales training, and more exposure to the appointment process. Aside from that, I have nothing bad to say about the company. It is just a difficult industry to work in.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing! Just make sure your new hires are given the opportunity to see first and second appointments, and not just annual review appointments. Maybe provide some additional... sales training as well.
