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

Pros

Morgan Stanley has a great work environment where everyone is willing to help each other out. The employees work very hard and in turn get rewarded for it.

Cons

I was only working at MSSB for a short period of time so I don't really have anthing negative to say about the company. However, just like at any other large company your role can seem very small.

Advice to Management

I enjoyed the management at my office.

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

    Pros

    Instant legitimacy when talking to investment funds for the next step in your career. Morgan Stanley and Goldman are widely known as the 2 best firms by a longshot for analysts to start their financial careers

    Cons

    Being an investment banking analyst can feel like a glorified, overpaid personal assistant at times. 50% of your week is spent doing mindless activities that add little value to deals but is a product of the investment banking culture.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat this as a 2-3 year program. Invest more into the analysts, increase their quality of life, and groom them to stay with the company. The model of grinding people out keeps a particular type of person in banking... one that might not

    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.
