    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    salary is relatively attractive as a fresh graduate, on-job training is provided and it's a stable job. it's also good to meet people from different culture in an international corporate.

    Cons

    Basically not much promotion opportunity and the job is way too stable, even your job status and salary remains pretty stable (or slow gradual increase). In the beginning you will find the job quite challenging but it becomes boring and routines when you're familiar with the formatting stuffs.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    company offers great compensation (2x-3x)

    Cons

    mostly legacy work constituting of xml configuration, support & chase up
    mostly poor development methodologies & practices (very less TDD, Agile, old technologies)
    workaholic culture where most employee sit atleast till 8 PM (starting from 10 AM)
    more & odd working hours, lot of calls
    no BA role (business analyst) creating a great mess over the requirements, developer need to handle everything
    distributed qa team which makes it difficult to communicate over phone
    tight deadlines - do it either way attitude (quality of work does not matter)
    mostly procedural work for Java Developer (no OOPS, functional aspects)

    Advice to Management

    There should be a round of interview for the new hires where interviewers should clearly explain the nature of work.
    Interviewers should not ask rocket science questions to lure the candidate and then land them in the creek.
    Pairing should be practiced to solve the tickets/fixes so as to lower the work pressure for reverse engineering.
    working hours should be reduced to normal as humans are on earth not only for work.
    Should align the candidates as per their skill set rather then at random so as to respect the individual's aspiration
