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

Pros

One of the top firms in the world. Great reputation. Competitive salary for new hires. International opportunities. Great opportunities for growth and learning.

Cons

Once you are hired, they are done paying you. 8 of my 14 years with 0 end of year love. Decisions sometimes take forever. Company "Vision" is not always clear. Compensation is VERY hard to come by. They routinely hire someone off the street at $5K more than the "expert" that's been doing the job for several years.

Advice to Management

Pay your talent.

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

    Pros

    The pro's are the prestige and intelligence associated with working for a firm like Morgan Stanley. You are able to gain a wealth of knowledge just from listening to abstract conversations. The responsibility associated with the job is incredible

    Cons

    The visibility from Senior management at the analyst level is as expected. As an analyst you are there to learn, so not much action (respect if you will) is taken to ensure the develpment and growth of the analyst, deppending on the program. Dog eat Dog atmoshere off and on.

    Advice to Management

    Management should keep up trying to include all of Morgan Stanley in their surveys, and to keep giving them advice to grow and implement that feedback in their decisions.


  2. "good name, poor work environment"

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

    Pros

    Morgan Stanley has a great name that is recognized world wide. People are impressed with the name and since you work for such a well know financial firm it is easier to get interviews with other big name companies.

    Cons

    Expectations are high and compensation is low. This firm does not look at you as individual human beings, they look at you as replaceable. They are also not concerned with customer service at all. They claim that this is of most importance, but actions speak louder than words. They do not reward for high levels of skill and customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they are worth or there will continue to be serious job turnover
