    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time

    Pros

    The few high performers that you do come across are truly exceptionally

    Cons

    Meritocracy is not a concept that management is familiar with. Any employee, regardless of talent or performance, working on "pet" initiatives, is considered to be valuable asset. Promotion is next to impossible if you're not in the "right" roles. Internal mobility is a joke because you cannot apply for the next level up - how does that encourage professional growth within a firm? If you are looking to kill your ambitions, apply now.

    Advice to Management

    Think of ways to keep and develop your high performers, unless the long term plan is to end up with a bigger mediocre majority that talks more than works.
