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.

Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at William Blair full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

* Management really shows respect for staff * Work with really intelligent people * Culture of respect throughout the firm * Beautiful new office environment * Great approach to diversity and... inclusion

Cons

* The asset management industry will like face headwinds in future
