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

Pros

I love the culture and the talent at Morgan Stanley. I have learned so much in my two years here at the firm.

Cons

The hours can be brutal which can be annoying for someone just starting out but it's worth it.

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

    Pros

    Location and that's about it.

    Cons

    No transparency, HR isn't knowledgeable or strategic thinkers so you're off on bad footing from day 1. Sr mgmt. often micromanages, never any recognition or rewards. Negotiate salary upfront because that's all you're getting. The Purchase building is rundown. Needs a facelift along with archaic technology and programs. Hard to believe this is a financial institution. Operates more like a warehouse. Revolving door of know-it-alls.

    Advice to Management

    Leave and get a new job elsewhere. I hear McDonald's is hiring.

    I have been working at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not too much that is positive in this company. Culture integration with joint venture not solidified.

    Cons

    Poor morale, lots of cliques, and with constant lay offs, we're always wondering when it will be our turn. Company values consultants more than employees. I've seen too many incompetent staff promoted, because of favoritism or senior positions go to outside hire, again to people who know the hiring manager.
