I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great office atmosphere and support staff. They give you plenty of freedom to advise your clients without pushing any company products.

Cons

Getting anything approved through management is extremely difficult and time consuming. If you need something done quick, you probably aren't going to get it approved in time.

Advice to Management

Just try and streamline the approval process.

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

    Pros

    Environment of respect. Highest level of benefits. Ability to make A LOT of money!

    Cons

    You have to have an entrepreneurial personality to get the business you need!

    Advice to Management

    Open up hiring to include people without college degree. I know of people we are missing out on because of this...

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

    Pros

    Really sharp people - good culture. Flexible hours. A bunch of senior management changes lately are very positive for the future. Ideas are being challenged and change is starting to take shape.

    Cons

    Lack of decision - analysis paralysis - too many stakeholders. A big difference between MS veterans (10+ years) and newer employees. Old school employees steadfastly hold to the MS way of doing things and resist new ideas from newer employees. Makes for an interesting internal struggle - but can be frustrating.
