    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time

    Pros

    Income is good if you can make your quotas, bonuses also get progressively higher if goals are met. Other incentives include stock bonus (though very minor) with a five year vesting schedule

    Cons

    You are on your own. It is the deep end of the pool for new financial advisors. You get books, time to study, only one chance to pass your series 7, or you are fired asap. All they want you to do is cold call to increase their assets.

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

    Pros

    Those that work hard and are willing to learn about their business will find enough projects to prove their worth

    Cons

    Things are still in flux and will take years to settle in to a rhythm.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the tech - don't stop improving and look to advice from the people that do the day to day work - their insight is invaluable...and generally more accurate.
