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

Pros

Great benefits
Autonomy
Friendly co-workers
Generous vacation policy

Cons

Training program for new FA's is weak at best
No support after you're licensed.
Very hard to get a book of business going.
Probably a great place to end up after you've built a book of business elsewhere.

Advice to Management

Management attracts some really great talent but often doesn't work at retaining that talent. The Financial Advisor program is a waste of everyone's time.

    Pros

    Nice office locations and office decor.

    Cons

    No training and they just want to be introduced to your contacts and steal your book of business and give it to the senior people. All you really are is a low paid-lead generator for the senior people.

    Advice to Management

    Horrible training program. Treat your people better.
