I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Working at Morgan Stanley was a great career accelerator and a great experience giving exposure to many transactions and building a solid network.

Cons

The size of the firm is such that you can have very different experiences depending on the group you work in, and it is soemtimes hard to build your own network.

    I worked at Morgan Stanley as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great experience
    Professionals that are knowledgeable
    Tremendous availability of financial information and products

    Cons

    Steep learning curve
    Many things to learn (I view as a positive)

    Advice to Management

    I had a wonderful experience. My boss was helpful and was a great mentor. Of course it is such a large company and there is a bureaucracy to navigate through. I wish I could have turned into a full time career.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent management team is still in place in the Boston office, which keeps the values in place of the Smith Barney culture, which then became Morgan Stanley in mid 2012.

    Cons

    The computer systems, which were put in place by Morgan Stanley as a result of the merger in mid 2012 are in need of being restored to prior Smith Barney elegance and efficiency

    Advice to Management

    Senior management in NYC should listen to the "troops" in the field, and reconstruct the computer system that was in place on the Smith Barney side..
