    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Formerly well-managed, could possibly become so again
    Good corporate culture with well communicated initiatives
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Frequent changes in structure, products, services which negatively affect customers
    Company claims to make optimal use of employees skills and experience but this is not true, if you are in a position beneath your abilities it is almost impossible to become better matched
    Be careful if you are hired as a financial advisor because their business model is set up to use you for your contacts and network and then give them to "tenured" advisors.

    Advice to Management

    Change your business model so that you have specialized each of sales/marketers, portfolio managers, and service personnel instead of making your advisors do all of these roles at once. Because advisors have to constantly bring in more business, they neglect their clients portfolios and performance suffers. Also, make it mandatory to re-assign the over qualified employees.
