    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great Brand
    Good Systems
    Great Location
    Nice Offices
    Good access to other departments
    Global foot-print

    Cons

    Little to no support for lateral/ inter departmental movements

    Poor compensation relative to industry

    More work load, smaller bonus

    Have not had a pay rise in 3 years (nor has anyone in my position)

    Glass ceiling - you cant move up...

    Political nightmare

    No Recognition - partly due to the fact your manager has no idea what you are doing

    Quicker to suggest exploring job opportunities externally than to assist internally (not isolated incident)

    No clear requirements to progress - consistently changing progression requirements

    Losing clients due to poor credit rating

    No advertising is Australia - most people don't know our division exists!

    Icing on the cake - in performance reviews, they cannot give all high performers 'exceeds expectations' because they have to follow a bell curve. Low pay relative to industry and no recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Identify and recognize talent.

    Pay people what they are worth.

    Help people with their career development - its the only way to retain driven/motivated people.

    If an employee wants to move divisions, and they have the qualifications, help them!

    Do not shift the 'goal posts' that some one has been working hard towards - I am not the only one that feels this way.
