    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of learning opportunities. They pay for you to get series licenses.

    Cons

    Poor management, poor pay, long hours, not a job I'd recommend. I worked there too long and management kept lying about raises, promotions etc. I found a better company to work for and finally quit my position at Morgan Stanley.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is very unhelpful. They allow financial advisors do unethical things as long as they make the firm money.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are still some talented developers.

    Cons

    Your skill set will rapidly deteriorate, since the technology used is antiquated.

    Advice to Management

    Your saccharine, 'motivational' emails are more transparently insincere than you realize. The bonuses you accept and pay (to the very, very few) are morale-busting when nearly no one else gets a bonus or even a cost of living raise. Using 'consultants', H-1B visa holders (at 70% normal salary), and off-shoring is leading to a catastrophic implosion within a few years, since the quality of work is extremely low.
