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

Pros

- Ability to work independently
- Paid licensing and training
- Unlimited resources
- Great opportunity for those with many connections or family money

Cons

- Very short time frame to build business before being let go
- No administrative support
- No onsite "coach" or training person
- Company is only interested in very large accounts. This can be tough for someone starting out in the business.

Advice to Management

- Need administrative support for people in training
- Need "sales manager" to help develop new business and ideas
- Need budget for business development

    Pros

    Great company to start working if you are straight out of college! Great atmosphere, friendly people!

    Revise training program. Ensure that employees going through the STC training have a minimum of 6 weeks to train.
