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

Pros

There is good life-work balance with an option of working from home. Reasonable managers and people with good knowledge are there.

Cons

The firm is not at its best. They try to save where it is possible, so there are some silly things happen. Also, number of people left lately due to base salary freeze and zero bonuses.

Advice to Management

Don't save pennies on working tools.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Morgan Stanley (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is really hard to find anything positive about these people

    Cons

    They use schema of several U.S. companies in order to avoid paying taxes in Quebec and they will try to involve you in these almost illegal activities
    Horrible working environment – the worst personal relationship and attitude i have ever seen
    Mega geek culture
    Significant lack of professionalism at all levels
     Contractors beware! Do not risk your credentials – all you get would be pain, frustration and you will attract the attention of revenue Quebec and the authorities

    Advice to Management

    They have a lot to learn .... starting from basic behavioral norms like decent language and respect
