Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

The quality of people seems unparalleled compared to other companies I've worked at. Mind you, I've been a consultant at big banks for about 15 years.

Cons

Old corporate culture still lingers and is resistant to many changes - unless it comes from the top.

Advice to Management

Try to learn from your subordinates and especially your contractors, what can be done to improve your organization.

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

    Pros

    Smart co-workers, good environment in Purchase, NY. The amenities are great even though the work was not terribly stimulating

    Cons

    During the financial crisis, it was a rough place to work. Comp was horrible and there were no opportunities to move even laterally in the company during that time.
