Pros

MSSB is not a very demanding place to work and offers good pay, hours, and relaxed environment relative to industry peers.

Cons

MSSB does not offer good opportunities for motivated people to have a challenging experience. There is very little management feedback on performance or job satisfaction.

Advice to Management

Stay in touch with your employees. Communicate your strategies and goals for the firm, their individual businesses, and their careers clearly. Offer them attainable benchmarks and reward them when they meet them.

    Pros

    Great corporate culture
    Amazing benefits
    "Open–doors" management style
    Wide range of internal classes you can take to improve your professional and personal growth
    Encouraged rotation after 3 years at one position

    Cons

    At times can be difficult dealing with Human Resources, especially at times of interviewing and salary negotiating. I referred several very qualified people for open position and all of them had difficulties dealing with personalities of HR reps.

    Advice to Management

    I really hope James Gorman will do everything in his power to fill the really big shoes of his predecessor

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Looks great on your resume
    - Salaries are highly competitive
    - Great opportunity to relocate to different offices if you choose

    Cons

    I worked for MS for over 12 years. I can honestly say that it is not the place it used to be. Management seems to care less and less about their employees (especially if you are not on the revenue generating side). The promotion process is a bunch of BS. Its all who you brown nose the most and not necessarily about who deserves it the most. Also, the work-life balance has gone down hill. If your a robot, you'll do great!

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at the back office management teams. There are a lot of incompetent managers around. Also, its time to revamp the promotionary process. Its not right that people who you never have had any contact with have a say in promotions..
