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 - Associate

Pros

Excellent group of people to work with. Worked with professionals from around the world.

Cons

Consensus driven work culture may not appeal to all. Decision making is driven by multiple teams/agents.

Advice to Management

None
