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

    Pros

    Collaborative workplace, people very respectful of each other, work extra hours to fix problems. Enjoy the freedom to analyze and solve problems; not micromanaged by my boss.

    Cons

    Ruthless when it comes to firing people; departed colleagues are forgotten overnight. Compensation is poor. Very little interaction with senior managers. Stingy with money: company wont pay to celebrate a team success when rolling out a new solution.

    Advice to Management

    Too much bureaucracy; no sense of urgency when it comes to rolling out products and services. Inward focused organization; decision making is slow.
