    I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Brand recognition, good benefits package.

    Cons

    Morgan has lost its way. Focus shifted from Institutional investing (highly respectable and profitable) to servicing retail customers which isn't as profitable when customers can buy a service over the web. Technology is no longer important or appreciated. My pay dropped by 30% over 10 years due to market conditions (unavoidable) and a new management philosophy. I was not alone so it wasn't me. JP Morgan would be appalled. "Doing first class business in a first class way" is dead.

    Advice to Management

    You have driven out the good talent, you can no longer attract quality talent and you are maintaining mediocre talent. This is true of knowledge talent as well as leadership. I wish you the best of luck with your persent management philosophy but it is not a capitalistic, merited based award system. It has degraded to a "good ole' boy system."

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Morgan Stanley is a large company which lends itself to many opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Morgan Stanley like many companies is extremely competitive in the work environment. If you are not agressive by nature you will have difficulty succeeding. Additionally, like many companies today there is little concern for the internal user community. Everything is tied to cost conservation not providing the best service to the internal clients
