I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The company offered great benefits and flexible hours when needed. The bonus pay was great, and they offered cross training in other departments. If you were weak in a particular area you could request additional training. They offered all sorts of additional perks for their employees.

Cons

It takes a while to get promoted. You have to be able to adapt to change quickly without a lot of initial training.

    "You will loose your skills, dignity and job over a period of time"

    Career prospects in IT are bad. Morgan Stanley is an outsourcing factory. They hire people in India, transfer knowledge to them then lay you off. Most people in IT feel they are the next lamb of slaughter. This is how it works. They will introduce you to a few consultants, then they will ask questions about application and you will help them set up.. They will then be assigned new tasks and you will help them cross train. Slowly they will do the work and you will be on sidelined. After 6-12 months when management feels consultants know most of the application, you will be marked for layoff. Consultants then will be hired as full time employees at Morgan Stanley in India. My colleagues who have been with firm for 15-20 years are now training their replacements.

    It is a terrifying situation for technology professionals.

    If you are an IT professional, go somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Hire from India, NOT from Cornell, MIT, Columbia and NYU, only to suck their productivity and lay them off. You have made this company cheap!
