Featured Review

Current Employee - Private Equity Analyst

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

Pros

I worked for MS during all my undergrad internships across S&T and IM. The firm has a truly outstanding culture across the board. Everyone I have met throughout the organization is bright and... open to talk or help in any capacity. The firm has an incredibly deep network and possibly the best name brand with clients / counter parties.

Cons

A bit of a bureaucratic organization, a lot process and compliance protocols.
