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

Pros

It will largely depend on the group you belong, but there's a culture of tolerance and genuine camaraderie. It's a great place to work in, people are intelligent and hardworking.

Cons

It's unbelievably busy. High pressure and stressful at times.

(IT) Higher management needs to be more transparent and approachable.

Advice to Management

The promotion process is not visible & should be improved to be fair. Most people don't get through because "someone in the committee doesn't know them".

Poor/no compensation, poor/no salary hike is draining the Firm of precious talents. You will not find those in cheaper offshore vendors.

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

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work in. Lots of teamwork and collaboration. You get to own your projects and have a sense of being part of a larger team.

    Cons

    As with all large companies, there is a certain level of "process" that must be adhered to - especially being a large investment bank.
