I worked at Morgan Stanley full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great exposure to the myriad of Corporate bureaucracy, and red tape which makes a large corporation inefficient. Very well respected name, based on their past laurels, acquisitions, and antiquated brand.

Cons

The Corporation is so large, that in IT, it sometimes takes days to get the right people responsible for specific data areas. Ridiculous amount of processes and procedures which keep changing, in hopes that they may possibly be compliant with governmental regulation, and oversight. Very poor long-term employment prospects, as outsourcing, and onshore consulting companies is the current employment/labor model, as it is easy to release them when a routine corporate staffing re-alignment (lay-off) is scheduled. There were over 3 of these in phases in 2014 (I'm writing this mid-July 2014).

Advice to Management

Think Long-term, Grow slower, and ensure that the systems created are well-understood, and that there are competent staff to suppor tthem.

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

    Pros

    respectable company to work for, seems like some departments may be nice to work in. they are open to letting you move within the company without your manager sand bagging you to keep you.

    Cons

    on the service side of things you gain more and more responsibility and levels of expertise with no increase in pay. cant say that i've ever seen a company consider a move into a management position as lateral before.

    Advice to Management

    management is very straight forward and honest from my experience. thats nice.
