I have been working at Morgan Stanley as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Great company with great opportunities. If you do well you will get where you want. You can grow within and get a rewarding career.

Cons

Everything is about money and making the company profitable and sometimes that harms its employers (mostly lower level) in favor of the company as a whole.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    very smart people, good culture, very strong brand, anyone will take your call because you are Morgan Stanley, in the middle of interesting deals so you get to see a lot of action

    Cons

    deferred comp getting crazier and crazier, balance sheet not big enough to compete with the big banks, funding costs not competitive for lending or derivatives, and cutting back on sales and trading

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

    Pros

    Great work life balance. No other reasons to work here anymore

    Cons

    You wont get paid comensurate to the street. The overall mood is horrible. This is not the same MS as it was 10 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Gorman. The man badmouths his own industry to the steet repeatedly. Stock price is down 60% and he is "only" getting a 10 million salary. wah.
