Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good training program that allows you to get licensed and trained to be a financial advisor. Co-workers are some of the best advisors in the industry.

Cons

Managements lack of understanding of the business. Focus is on top level producers and not trainees.

Advice to Management

Focus on the future of the business which are your trainees. Baby boomer FA's are nearing retirement, then what?

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some really good talent still at the local level, comp is down the last 5+ years but still respectable.

    Cons

    The firm has lost sight of its biggest asset in its customers and servicing them first. Adopting an old slogan of "we make our money the old fashion way, we earn it" would do a lot of good

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the field and their ask to service customer needs quickly and appropriately.


  2. "Engaging Atmosphere, competitive environment"

    I worked at Morgan Stanley as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very open to training within core teams, very helpful in terms of advancement and introduction into business practices

    Cons

    Need to better coordinate services between branches and brokers. When I was there they were still in transition and there were tons of communication problems.
